The Detroit Lions placed tight end David Ausberry on the injured reserve list today. The move is not much of a surprise given yesterday’s signing of Jacob Maxwell. Ausberry has been out with an injury and with Fauria slightly hobbled, the team decided to bring in more bodies for their pre-season game this Thursday. Ausberry’s move to IR means an open roster spot which the team used to sign Jocquel Skinner. Skinner, a corner out of Bethel University, is in his second year in the league after bouncing around between Dallas, Tampa Bay, and Carolina.
