Whatever progress tight end David Ausberry has made with his injured shoulder hasn’t been enough, with the Raiders opting to place the veteran on injured reserve and promote guard Lamar Mady from the practice squad.
Ausberry has been consistently listed as the first-team tight end throughout his injury. Jeron Mastrud has been the Raiders starter, with rookie Mychal Rivera’s role mostly as a pass receiver.
