Raiders activate Mady, place Ausberry on IR
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have promoted guard Lamar Mady from the practice squad to the active roster and placed tight end David Ausberry on season-ending injured reserve.
General manager Reggie McKenzie announced the moves Monday before Oakland played at Denver.
Ausberry was on target to be the starter before he hurt his shoulder in the team’s second preseason game. He was inactive for the first two regular season games before the team decided to shut him down for the season.
Mady joined Oakland as an undrafted free agent in April after playing two years at Youngstown State. He was cut at the end of training camp and placed on the practice squad. He provides added depth with starter Lucas Nix slowed by an ankle injury.
