The identity of the Raiders’ starting quarterback isn’t the only thing up in the air for the team for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.
They might not have Sebastian Janikowski, their most consistent offensive weapon over the last few years, in the lineup. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Friday that the team will look at other kickers to cover themselves in the event Janikowski cannot go because of a hamstring injury.
Janikowski was listed as limited at practice Thursday after not appearing on Wednesday’s injury report. The kicker was at practice Friday, but he wasn’t kicking. Matt Kawahara of the Sacramento Bee did not see any other kickers on the field during the portion of practice open to the media. Janikowski has made 12-of-13 field goals this season, including five of them from 50 or more yards.
