Sebastian Janikowski apparently has passed the test.

NFL.com is reporting Janikowski will play Sunday and potential replacement Dave Rayner has gone home. Rayner was in Oakland in case the Raiders ruled out Janikowski of Sunday’s game against Denver.

Janikowski missed the entire week of practice with a lingering hamstring injury that kept him out of Week 7. The Raiders had a bye last week.

The Raiders had Janikowski test his kicking leg Saturday morning.

Getting Janikowski back is big for the Raiders. He is the NFL’s best weapon on long-field goal attempts and he is terrific on kickoffs.
