Raiders Injury Update: Sebastian Janikowski's Groin Injury Not Serious

No doubt more than a few Oakland Raiders fans cringed when their star kicker, Sebastian Janikowski, suffered a groin injury trying to make a tackle on a kick return on Saturday against Detroit.

Janikowski is the Raiders' ultimate weapon on offense, a player the team has come to rely on year after year. But fear not Raiders fans, it seems as though SeaBass's injury isn't serious enough to keep him from missing the season opener.

Should Janikowski not be ready, the Raiders could have their emergency call-in kicker waiting in the wings in Eddy Carmona.

Other Raiders player injuries to keep an eye on are DT Richard Seymour (knees, though it's more for rest than being hurt), WRs Jacoby Ford (left foot) and Denarius Moore (right hamstring), LB Aaron Curry (knees), C Stefen Wisniewski (calf), OL Ed Wang (shoulder) and OL Zach Hurd (head).

Quarterback Matt Leinart has an injury to his right index finger which kept him from playing in Saturday's game.
