Sebastian Janikowski (back, injured reserve) will not return this season.
There was hope the veteran kicker would come back, but the Raiders decided to use their two return spots on rookie S Obi Melifonwu and sophomore CB Antonio Hamilton. A free agent after this season, that decision could mean Janikowski has played his final snap with the Raiders, the team which drafted him No. 17 overall way back in 2000. Janikowski turns 40 in March. Nov 30 - 10:56 AM

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (I.R.) won't require surgery on his injured back.

Janikowski is out with a disc issue but could return in eight weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Giorgio Tavecchio will handle the kicking duties during his absence.
Sep 10 - 8:57 AM

Raiders placed K Sebastian Janikowski (back) on injured reserve.

Janikowski practiced on a limited basis and was listed as questionable for Week 1. He'll now miss at least the first six games before he's eligible to return. The Raiders promoted Giorgio Tavecchio from the practice squad to replace Janikowski.
Sep 9 - 4:29 PM

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (back) is questionable for Week 1 against the Titans.

Janikowski was limited all week with a back injury but should be a go for Sunday's opener. The Raiders signed Giorgio Tavecchio to their practice squad as insurance in case Janikowski suffers a last-minute setback.
Sep 8 - 3:50 PM

Sebastian Janikowski will stay with the Raiders after resolving his contractual differences with the team.

Specifically, he agreed to a $1 million pay cut. He will remain the longest-tenured Raider in team history. Janikowski was the 17th overall pick in the 2000 NFL draft. Janikowski went 29-of-35 on field goals last season and is worth a look as a Week 1 play in what's projected as a high-scoring game against the Titans.
Sep 6 - 10:57 PM

The Raiders have asked K Sebastian Janikowski to rework his contract, but Janikowski has declined.

Janikowski is set to earn a base salary of $4.05 million in the final year of his deal, and it becomes guaranteed on Saturday if he's still on the roster. It explains why the Raiders hosted free agent Ks Josh Lambo, Mike Nugent, and Marshall Koehn on Monday. Janikowski is by far the longest-tenured Raiders player and turned 39 this year. He's been in Oakland since 2000.
Sep 4 - 8:22 PM

Sebastian Janikowski (quad) is practicing in full this week.

Janikowski was held out of Oakland's final two preseason games. He returned to practice Wednesday and will be fine for Week 1 against the Jets.

Sebastian Janikowski will miss Friday night's preseason game with a quad injury.

He should be considered day to day. Kevin Goessling will handle kicking duties.
Fri, Aug 22, 2014 07:12:00 PM

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.

Sebastian Janikowski (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 10.

Janikowski is safe to use in fantasy leagues against the Giants.
Fri, Nov 8, 2013 03:56:00 PM

Sebastian Janikowski missed practice Wednesday due to a rib injury.

Janikowski will probably be fine for Sunday's game at the Giants, but the Raiders offense isn't affording him enough opportunities. He has a grand total of 13 field goal attempts in eight games.
Wed, Nov 6, 2013 04:38:00 PM

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (calf) is listed as probable for Week 1.

"Seabass is going to play," confirms beat writer Scott Bair. "No concerns."
Fri, Sep 6, 2013 05:21:00 PM

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (calf) returned to practice Thursday.

The Raiders' most fantasy relevant player, Sea Bass will be ready to roll against the Colts.
Thu, Sep 5, 2013 02:22:00 PM

Sebastian Janikowski (calf) missed Raiders practice Wednesday.

Janikowski is dealing with a right -- plant leg -- calf issue. Coach Dennis Allen said he'll be ready to kick against the Colts. The Raiders' offense may not even get in position to where they'll need Janikowski on Sunday.
Wed, Sep 4, 2013 06:11:00 PM

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. "Seabass" 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.
