    Kasa missing from battle

    The Contra Costa Times reports the departure of Brandon Myers to the Giants in free agency left a huge void for the Raiders to fill at tight end. Myers led the Raiders in receptions last season, and he played almost every down, while David Ausberry and Richard Gordon bided their time on the sideline. Ausberry and Gordon are back for another crack at earning more playing time. The Raiders drafted Nick Kasa and Mychal Rivera as a means of creating more competition. "It's pretty wide open," coach Dennis Allen said. "All those guys are doing a nice job. Obviously, it's hurt not having Kasa (hamstring) out there because he's a guy we really anticipated being able to step-in and potentially fill a role for us. So, hopefully, we'll get him out there soon. The big thing, again, with those guys, just like it is with everyone else, it's going to be the consistency issue because they are relatively young at the position."
