David Ausberry's shoulder injury from Friday night's preseason game against the Saints could be significant, according to the Oakland Tribune. He left the stadium in a sling and the team will likely reevaluate him.
There could be some concern of a separation or subluxation to his shoulder, which suggests Ausberry would miss time during the regular season. Some shoulder injuries can be of the season-ending variety while others can be just a week-to-week prognosis, so we should know more upon further testing.
Fantasy impact: He's been on the radar as a deep sleeper since Oakland's wide receivers are about as reliable as most of Oakland's first-round picks. Ausberry was expected to see work on all three downs and his ability to go up and get the ball could have led to several end-zone targets.
He caught just seven balls last year with the Raiders, so this ominous news should cause fantasy owners to remove him from their draft boards until further notice. His backup, Mychal Rivera, isn't worth targeting.
