Ausberry, Janikowski not practicing


Tight end David Ausberry and kicker Sebastian Janikowski are the only two players on the 53-man roster not practicing Wednesday.
Backup safety Usama Young returned to practice, and he appears good to go for Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
The same can’t be said of Janikowski and Ausberry, at least for now. Coach Dennis Allen speaks with the media in about 90 minutes or so, and he might have updates on his injured players.
Ausberry is on the practice field, but he is working off to the side with a team trainer. He has been out with a shoulder injury he suffered against the New Orleans Saints in an exhibition game.
There is no definitive word on what ails Janikowski. The Raiders signed Justin Medlock before their exhibition game against the Seattle Seahawks and let Medlock fill in for Janikowski that game.
Medlock was waived Saturday. That signals that the Raiders are confident Janikowski will be ready to go against the Colts.
As for the quarterback situation, it remains to be seen whether Allen will name a starter. Terrelle Pryor took the first rep with the first-team offense Monday.

    As long as Phillip Adams is on the Roster we have a chance to go 16-0
    I actually like Adams.

    Think he will snag one of the CB slots from the scrub Jenkins.

    Fully expect DJ and Adams to be our starting Corners by midseason at the latest.

    if somebody told you right now the two teams that would be in the Super Bowl

    you would probably laugh at him because the first 16 teams in the NFL there’s no difference in the talent

    and the other 16 teams aren’t far behind the others because the NFL is so short only 16 weeks

    and because of injuries you just can’t tell how it’s going to go you may think you know
    this time next year the Raiders could look like one of the better teams

    how this year’s draft goes so goes the Raiders I don’t think our starting quarterback
    is on this team

    49ers could have a lousy season Wilson could be digressed in Seattle
