Janikowski suits up for Raiders against Broncos
Sunday, November 6, 2011
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Placekicker Sebastian Janikowski is active for the Oakland Raiders against the Denver Broncos after missing the previous game with a hamstring injury.
Janikowski did not practice during the week and the Raiders considered signing another kicker for Sunday's game. But coach Hue Jackson decided to stick with Janikowski instead.
Star running back Darren McFadden is out with a sprained right foot and third quarterback Terrelle Pryor is also inactive.
The Broncos are dressing backup quarterback Brady Quinn for the first time since Oct. 9 against San Diego. Quinn has not played since being acquired from Cleveland before last season.
