  • Janikowski (back) won't return this season, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Having used one of their designated-to-return spots to activate rookie safety Obi Melifonwu from injured reserve Nov. 4, the Raiders tabbed Antonio Hamilton (knee) for the other Tuesday. Janikowski will thus remain on IR for the rest of the 2017 season as he recovers from an injured disc in his back. In his absence, Giorgio Tavecchio will handle kicking duties for the final five games of the campaign.

  • Janikowski will not require surgery on the injured disc in his back, and he could return in eight weeks, according to Ian Rapoport of Janikowski was surprisingly placed on injured reserve Saturday after initially being listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. The possibility that he could return is a plus for the Raiders, though with only two opportunities to use the IR-return designation, it's unclear if they would use it on him.

  • Raiders' Sebastian Janikowski: Hits injured reserved
    By RotoWire Staff

    Janikowski (back) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Janikowski was listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, but the move still comes as a bit of a surprise after Janikowski was able to practice throughout the week on a limited basis. The 39-year-old is now out for the season, unless the Raiders elect to utilize one of their two IR-return designations on him. Oakland signed Giorgio Tavecchio off its practice squad to fill in for the veteran, and he'll make his first ever regular-season appearance against the Titans on Sunday.

  • Janikowski (back), who was limited at practice all week, is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Titans. Janikowski remains the only kicker on the Raiders' 53-man roster, but the team has added insurance in advance of Sunday's contest in the form of Giorgio Tavecchio, who was added to the team's practice squad Friday. Looking ahead, the most telling sign with regard to any sort of doubt regarding Janikowski's Week 1 status would of course be a move this weekend to promote Tavecchio to the active roster.

  • Janikowski (back) was limited at practice Thursday. A restructured contract ensures that Janikowski will remain with the Raiders, but the veteran kicker's limitations at practice this week are a bit concerning in advance of Sunday's season opener against the Titans. Per the San Jose Mercury News, if Janikowski is unavailable in Week 1, the team could, in the short term, turn to another kicker such as Giorgio Tavecchio, Josh Lambo, Mike Nugent or Marshall Koehn.
