News: The Lions released Ausberry on Tuesday, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Impact: Ausberry received an injury settlement after suffering a broken finger in training camp. The ailment will likely prevent him from latching on with another team until later in the season.

News: Ausberry landed on IR due to a broken finger, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.
Impact: Ausberry was brought into Detroit to compete for a fringe TE job, but instead, he'll spend the season recovering on injured reserve. As a result, Joseph Fauria's path to a spot on the Lions' 53-man roster has been made easier.

News: Ausberry was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with an undisclosed injury, the Lions' official website reports.
Impact: Ausberry missed a good chunk of last season with a foot injury, but the Lions were hoping he could push Joseph Fauria for the No. 3 tight end spot. Even if he'd stayed healthy, Ausberry was unlikely to make the final roster.
