ALAMEDA -- Sebastian Janikowski was named the AFC special teams player of the month Thursday, the third time he's won the award since the start of the 2011 season.

Janikowski also won in September and November of last season, as well as in September of 2001.

During the month of October, Janikowski was 10-for-11 on field goal attempts, with the lone miss a 64-yard attempt at the end of regulation against Jacksonville, a game that he won with a 40-yarder in overtime.

He also had 13 touchbacks in 19 kickoffs and scored 36 points in the month. His 52-yard field goal against Atlanta was the 38th from 50 yards or beyond of his career. From 39 yards and in, Janikowski has made his last 43 attempts, the last miss coming from 32 yards against Arizona on Sept. 26, 2010.

Running back Mike Goodson (turf toe) and center Stefen Wisniewski were both on the field for warm-ups and drills and appeared to be practicing in team sessions, as was Richard Seymour (knee), who sat out Wednesday's practice.

Still absent are cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot) and tackle Khalif Barnes (groin). Also not practicing was linebacker and core special teams player Keenan Clayton (shoulder).
