Sebastian Janikowski Injury Update: Raiders Kicker Out

UpdateRaiders name Janikowski's replacement.

The Oakland Raiders will be without their placekicker Sebastian Janikowski this week when they take on their AFC West rival, the Kansas City Chiefs. Janikowski is one of the better fantasy football and real football kickers in the NFL because of his powerful leg. He made three 50+ yard field goals against the Houston Texans two weeks ago.

While missing a kicker isn't a huge deal for most teams, Janikowski is about as much of a weapon as you can get out of a kicker. He can boom kick offs and actually let you score from mid-field. On the season, Janikowski has hit on 5 out of 6 50+ yard field goal attempts.
