CSNCalifornia.comThe Raiders inactives have been announced and joining the injured trio of tight end Kevin Boss (knee), receiver Louis Murphy (sports hernia) and safety Mike Mitchell (knee) are receiver Derek Hagan, linebacker Bruce Davis, guard Bruce Campbell, tight end David Ausberry.
Even though Hagan was "nicked" up with a calf issue last week, he insisted he was fine. He was also the Raiders' leading receiver in the preseason with 12 catches for 224 yards and a touchdown. He practiced fully this week and was officially listed as probably.
Davis and Campbell seem to have been caught in a numbers game as neither were on the injury report. And neither was Ausberry, who seems to have been kept out in favor of fellow rookie tight end Richard Gordon, who is a better run blocker. Ausberry is the better pass catcher.
