Raiders TE Nick Kasa was carted off the field with a knee injury in Wednesday's joint practice with the Cowboys.

"It didn't look good," were the words of coach Dennis Allen. It further thins the Raiders' tight end depth after presumptive starter David Ausberry underwent a left knee scope last week. The Raiders suddenly need Mychal Rivera to stay healthy. A 2013 sixth-rounder, Kasa caught just one pass as a rookie.

Raiders TE Nick Kasa sustained a concussion in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Jets.

Kasa, a sixth-round rookie, has been buried on the depth chart this season. He's still seeking his first career NFL catch while playing behind the likes of Mychal Rivera and Jeron Mastrud.

Raiders signed sixth-round TE Nick Kasa to a four-year contract.

Kasa (6-foot-5 7/8, 269) is a willing blocker, and he also displayed good speed (4.71 forty) at the Combine. The college defensive end-turned-tight end caught 26 passes for 399 yards and three scores in a year-plus of tight end work at Colorado. Kasa has a chance to earn the starting job in training camp.

Coach Bruce Allen referred to the Raiders' starting tight end spot as "wide open."

Rookies Nick Kasa and Mychal Rivera are competing with underwhelming incumbents David Ausberry and Richard Gordon. We can safely say that there won't be any kind of Brandon Myers emergence out of this group. If the Raiders can get quality blocking out of the position, they'll be thrilled.

Raiders selected Colorado TE Nick Kasa with the No. 172 overall pick.

Kasa (6-foot-5 7/8, 269) was a defensive end until halfway through his junior year. As a senior, he caught 25 passes for 391 yards (15.6 YPR) and three touchdowns before showing good speed (4.71 forty) at the Combine. Kasa is a work in progress, but his size-speed combination gives him long-term upside. The Raiders have little talent at the position, so despite his lack of comfort as a receiver, Kasa has a chance to touch the field as a rookie due to his willingness to block.
