Lions placed TE David Ausberry on injured reserve with a broken finger, ending his season.

Ausberry was a poor bet to beat out Joseph Fauria for the No. 3 tight end job. Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew are locked on top of the depth chart.

Lions signed TE David Ausberry.

The 27-year-old has reeled in 11-of-18 targets since entering the league in 2011. With Eric Ebron, Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria all drawing snaps at tight end, Ausberry faces an uphill battle as he looks to secure a roster spot.
Wed, Jun 10, 2015 11:10:00 AM

Raiders placed TE David Ausberry on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

Ausberry has appeared in just 6-of-32 games the past two seasons. His season ends with two catches for 14 yards. Ausberry is a plus athlete, but he's running out of chances. He can't stay on the field. Ausberry will be a free agent in March.
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 02:50:00 PM

Raiders TE David Ausberry only played one snap in Week 1.

Mychal Rivera played 38-of-56. The Raiders' tight end situation is one to avoid in fantasy leagues. Perennially injured, Ausberry is currently coming off of a knee scope. When healthy, he may rotate evenly with Rivera.

Raiders TE David Ausberry (knee) is probable for Week 1.

Ausberry missed the preseason recovering from his early-August knee scope. He returned to practice Monday and hasn't had any setbacks. Now that he's healthy, Ausberry will open the season in committee with Mychal Rivera.
Fri, Sep 5, 2014 08:24:00 PM

David Ausberry (knee) is practicing in full for Week 1.

Ausberry has been practicing "without limitations" since Monday. He's expected to have a limited role in Week 1 after missing the entire preseason. Ausberry will split time with Mychal Rivera at tight end for the Raiders.
Wed, Sep 3, 2014 07:11:00 PM

David Ausberry (knee) returned to practice Monday.

Ausberry missed a month after undergoing a scope on his left knee. He and Mychal Rivera will handle tight end duties for the Silver and Black.
Mon, Sep 1, 2014 07:00:00 PM

Raiders TE David Ausberry (knee) is expected to return to practice Monday.

He's been sidelined since an early-August scope on his left knee. Ausberry should return to a starting role, but Mychal Rivera played okay in his absence this preseason, catching six balls for 76 yards and a touchdown. No matter who is the "starter," this is a situation to avoid in fantasy.
Fri, Aug 29, 2014 07:26:00 PM

Raiders TE David Ausberry was spotted with a "small wrap" on his left knee Wednesday.

It's a sign Ausberry's early-August "procedure" was indeed just a scope. The Raiders have protected Ausberry's status like a state secret, but it appears he'll be ready to go for Week 1. Ausberry had been running as the Raiders' starter, but could now be facing competition from Mychal Rivera.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 10:12:00 PM

Raiders TE David Ausberry is undergoing knee surgery on Wednesday.

As is his custom, coach Dennis Allen was unnecessarily vague when discussing Ausberry's injury, only disclosing that he was undergoing a "procedure." It's almost certainly a scope. Although minor, it's likely to knock Ausberry out for the entirety of the preseason, and leave him questionable for Week 1. Ausberry had been running as the Raiders' de facto starter at a position they don't have an answer for. Now 2013 sixth-rounder Mychal Rivera is in the driver's seat. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy leagues.
Tue, Aug 5, 2014 08:49:00 PM

David Ausberry is running as the first-team tight end at OTAs.

Ausberry missed all of last year due to a shoulder injury. He enters this year with the edge on pass-catching specialist Mychal Rivera due to superior blocking ability, and also has the advantage in raw speed. Still, we don't expect Ausberry to be an every-down player after Dennis Allen called Rivera a "foundation piece" last month. There's low-end TE2 upside at best here.
Mon, Jun 2, 2014 11:57:00 AM

Raiders TE David Ausberry has been participating in offseason workouts.

Ausberry spent all of 2013 on injured reserve. He hasn't had any setbacks with his shoulder injury and should compete with Mychal Rivera for a starting job. A converted receiver, Ausberry has 4.48 speed and will be worth monitoring.

Raiders placed TE David Ausberry on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Ausberry exited the Raiders' second preseason game with a "potentially significant" shoulder injury, and hadn't practiced since. The 2011 seventh-rounder had been slated to open the year as the Raiders' starting tight end, but will instead go into his walk year with just nine career catches. The Raiders are stuck with Jeron Mastrud and rookie Mychal Rivera at tight end. Rivera has five catches through two games. Ausberry has vanishingly little Dynasty-league value.
Mon, Sep 23, 2013 05:12:00 PM

Raiders TE David Ausberry has been ruled out for Week 3.

Ausberry still hasn't returned to practice and remains week-to-week. The Raiders will go with a committee of Jeron Mastrud and Mychal Rivera for Monday night's game against the Broncos.
