Ausberry, Janikowski not practicing

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, September 4th, 2013 at 12:01 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    Heck I may as well say “start McGloin Now!”

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    If Flynn can’t beat out a guy who has a 9.9 QB Rating he truly sucks.

    If Pryor can’t beat out a one-armed bandit with tendinitis, he truly sucks.

    Hailing either of these as world beaters is great comedy.

    You cant stand not being the center of attention, can you.

    scroll back. I put your prediction on the board. I never removed it. I don’t play the immature games that you thrive on.

    Oh really?

    What happened to my prediction of Raiders winning 23-20 that was on the list last night?

    “I’m watching the NFLN this morning and they’re discussing Matt Flynn losing the starting gig for the second straight season.

    While they’re talking about it, they’re showing MF lowlights from the Bear game.

    Basically MF throwing picks, getting sacked, and showing no ability to avoid pressure.

    Now I don’t think MF is terrible. I think he can play well in the right situation.

    However, this is definitely not the right situation for MF.

    I honestly believe that although MF is not a scrub, the RAID offense would do nothing with him as the QB and would be virtually unwatchable.

    Don’t see the RAIDS winning many games with TP at QB either, but there’s no doubt in my mind that the decision to start TP from the get-go is absolutely the right one.”
    ______________________________________________

    Sad but true. Some people argue like Matt Flynn played like Joe Montana for us in the pre-season. Maybe you lie about watching the games. MF played like hot garbage in the PS. EVERYBODY saw it. Maybe his arm was hurt. I am not disparaging the guy but he was not good….

    ================

    slob reveals his lack of knowledge yet again

    the first player classified as black was charlse w follis known as the black cylone circa 1904

    he had success and roosevelt wanted to make certain the black cyclone and others that would follow would never play qb

    he was fearful that if players like the cyclone were allowed to lead and play qb they would soon take over the sport

  • the famous dr robert

    Missdick won’t provide a name of the book cuz he knows we will trash it.

    It’s probably written by him. A collection of napkins and scraps he has jotted down for a book that “will shock the world”.

    3 starters from our 3 1st rounds on a team that lacks talent? Impressive
    ________
    name another team where the first three picks are starting on the squad? and by the way he came to the draft without a 2nd round pick

    there’s no way of telling how good or great they’ll be, but starting left tackle, best corner, and best lb in 3 picks is pretty good

    plus kasa and rivera look like they’ll be complete te’s by years end while robinson is our best pass rusher and butler may be our best wr by years end
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    1- I guess you miss “The Lacks Talent Part”. It’s harder to replace starters in a team loaded with talent like Seattle, SF, etc….
    2- Best CB and LB? Wow….. Based on preseason and their avg play you decided that they are better than every other CB and LB drafted this year?
    3- Watson is starting at LT for 2 reasons: 1- JV was injured 2- lack of depth at that position.
    4- may = hopes and dreams. Focus on the facts. Your pst is full of hopes and dreams and lacks facts.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I think its funny people still refuse to think why Raiders will lose this game.

    If the Raiders lose the game its not gonna be beacuse of whoever is at Qb.

    They will lose because of this horrible defense that cant stop a fly. The defense that was suppose to show some areas…notice i say some areas of improvment since the hue jax era. Ive yet to see one area.

    Please dont give me execuses.. even Papa said Mark is gonna evlauate DA based of defense improvments.
