Raiders tight end David Ausberry was making progress with his injured shoulder the last time we saw him catching passes on the side at practice, but the Raiders pulled the plug Monday. They placed him on injured reserve and promoted guard Lamar Mady from the practice squad.
It’s not known whether Ausberry had a setback or the Raiders just decided to go forward.
The team is moving on with TEs Jeron Mastrud, Mychal Rivera and Nick Kasa.
The rookie Rivera has 5 catches for 58 yards, and Mastrud, who plays for his blocking, has one for 41 yards.
