Raiders vs. Chiefs, Injury Report: Raiders Working Out Kickers, Sebastian Janikowski Sidelined With Hamstring Injury

The Oakland Raiders continue to play musical chairs at important offensive positions as the team is reportedly working out kickers due to the fact that Sebastian Janikowski's hamstring injury isn't progressing like the team had hoped:

When and where the injury occurred is not being divulged, but hopefully it will be a short lived stay on the sidelines for one of the most prolific kickers in NFL history. Amongst the players being worked out is kicker Fabrizio Scaccia, who was in San Francisco 49ers training camp earlier this year, according to Steve Corkran via Twitter. But whoever the Silver and Black end up using, they will have som incredibly large shoes to fill.

Janikowski, a 12 year NFL veteran, has been a major factor in Oakland's winning ways this season. He's converted 12 of the 13 field goals he's attempted this year, including an NFL record-tying 63-yarder against Denver back in week one to help secure the victory over the Broncos. He also hit four field goals in their emotional win over the Houston Texans just days after the passing of owner Al Davis.
