Raiders sign K Giorgio Tavecchio to practice squad

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders have signed kicker Giorgio Tavecchio to the practice squad as insurance in case Sebastian Janikowski can’t kick in the season opener.

Tavecchio traveled with the Raiders on Friday to Tennessee where they open their season against the Titans on Sunday.

Janikowski has been dealing with a back injury this week and is listed as questionable for the game. Tavecchio spent the exhibition season with the Raiders before being released last week.
