Sebastian Janikowski is testing his injured hamstring in pre-game warm-ups, and it’s apparent that he is at far less than the 97.2 percent coach Hue Jackson estimated Friday.
Still, even with a half leg-swing or so, Janikowski has the leg strength to make field goals from 50 yards or more. He converted one from 47 yards without taking a full swing at the ball. A short time later, he missed wide right from 50 yards.
In other news, Denarius Moore is fielding punts and is expected to remain in that role today, with Bryan McCann on deck if needed. Fellow rookie Taiwan Jones appears set to return kicks once again in light of Jacoby Ford’s absence.
New cornerback Bryan McCann is wearing No. 32 today. Can’t remember the last player who wore No. 32 for the Raiders since running back Marcus Allen’s days.
Middle linebacker Rolando McClain’s ankles are wrapped rather well, but he is moving around without any issues. Still no sign of defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who missed all four practices this week. Whole team is on the field, but Seymour nowhere to be seen.
