It appears that the bye week following the 28-0 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs has been beneficial for Sebastian Janikowski, as Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports that the Raiders expect to have him back on the field when they host the Denver Broncos on Sunday:
@JasonLaCanfora: Seabass Janikowski will kick for Raiders Sun. Free agent K Dave Rayner, who had been on stand by, has headed hone
Janikowski has been an excellent weapon for the Raiders this season, converting 12/13 field goal attempts, including five from 50+ yards. Janikowski was especially impressive in the season-opening victory over the Broncos, hitting all three attempts. The Raiders kicker even joined the NFL record book, as he nailed a record-tying 63-yard field goal in the 23-20 victory at Denver.
