Sebastian Janikowski K OAK 4 Months

Coach Dennis Allen said that expects Janikowski (quad) to be ready to play in Week 1 against the Jets, ESPN.com reports.

With Janikowski dealing with a quad injury, Giorgio Tavecchio filled in for the Raiders in Thursday's preseason finale. In any case, we'll monitor Janikowski's practice participation in advance of Week 1, though if Tavecchio is among the Raiders' final roster cuts, it would certainly bode well for Janikowski's availability.

Janikowski was scratched Friday due to a right quad injury, CSN California's Scott Bair reports.

This is the first we've heard of Janikowski dealing with a quad injury, and it's unclear how serious it is. We should know more about his status next week, but for now it doesn't seem like anything that would put his status for Week 1 in jeopardy.

Sebastian Janikowski is now just 15-of-22 on field goals this season.

Janikowski missed two more big ones against the Titans in Week 12 and his 68.2 conversion rate is by far the worst of his career. He's also missed twice from inside 40 yards this season, a spot in which he's made 85-of-86 across the previous five campaigns. "We're not making them, not consistently enough," said coach Dennis Allen. "We have to continue to work to get better there." Janikowski has a big name, but he's not a fantasy option while struggling in an inconsistent Raiders offense.

Raiders signed K Sebastian Janikowski to a four-year, $15.2 million extension through 2017.

Because Janikowski was signed through 2013 at $3.8 million, the new deal is essentially worth $19 million over five years, with $8 million in guarantees. Janikowski turned 35 in March, but nailed 31-of-34 field goal attempts last season as the Raiders' premier offensive weapon. He went 31-of-35 the year before. "Sebass" is annually a fantasy factor because the Raiders let him try especially long, 50-plus-yard field goals. The new contract will almost certainly ensure Janikowski finishes his career in Oakland.
