ALAMEDA -- While national reports swirl that Sebastian Janikowski might be out this weekend with a strained left hamstring, there were no other place-kickers seen during the media window to open practice Friday morning.In fact, Janikowski walked gingerly out to the field to operate the JUGS machine to simulate kickoffs.Many media outlets speculated that the Raiders would have several kickers in throughout the day for tryouts.Janikowski has converted 12 of 13 field-goal attempts this season, including an NFL-best five of six from at least 50 yards. The left-footed kicker is ninth in the league in scoring with 52 points. He tied the NFL record for longest field goal with his 63-yarder in Denver in the Raiders season opener.Thursday, he appeared on the Raiders' injury report as being "limited" in practice.
