Raiders put Sebastian Janikowski on injured reserve, call up Giorgio Tavecchio

Wenger Gunner move again for winger?
The 26-year-old scored 27 Ligue 1 goals last season, but only two of those were headers and only two came from outside the area. And as the game petered out it was time for the controversial Alexis Sanchez to enter the fray, along with Olivier Giroud .
It was not immediately clear how large an investment Alphabet might make. Although the online search giant did invest millions of dollars into the ride-hailing company, it's also now battling with it in court. They plan to bring autonomous vehicle technology into the mainstream through pilot projects and product-development efforts.
Uber is trying to develop the technology and commercialize it itself, but Waymo and Lyft could divide the work. Either way, this can't be good news for Uber. And although a deal could still fall through, the timing suggests that Lyft is capitalizing on Uber's recent stumbles, taking the opportunity to grow its war chest while its better-funded competitor is busy licking its wounds. Lyft is also in a competition against Uber for the title as the top ride hailing service.
That sort of money would allow Lyft to ratchet up its competition for drivers domestically - Uber has long used the billions in its coffers to help lure drivers with incentives - as well as consider an worldwide expansion.
Neither Alphabet/Google or Lyft have commented on the rumor.
