Veteran Philadelphia Eagles Kicker 'Expected' To Miss Week 5 Game

The Philadelphia Eagles may want to avoid any field-goal tries this Sunday. That's because they will likely be without their veteran kicker. 

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott, 27, is "expected" to miss Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. Elliott is dealing with an ankle injury.

The Eagles, as a result, are signing Cameron Dicker from their practice squad. Dicker is a University of Texas football legend. 

The good news is Elliott, meanwhile, isn't expected to miss much time beyond this Sunday. 

Eagles’ kicker Jake Elliott is expected to miss Sunday’s game at Arizona with an ankle injury, per sources. Eagles signed former Texas kicker Cameron Dicker to their practice squad this week and he is expected to kick Sunday. Elliott’s absence is not expected to be long term.

Jake Elliott is four of five on field-goal tries and 14 of 15 on extra points. He's a reliable veteran kicker. 

The Eagles are going to have to rely on the youngster, Dicker, this weekend though. 

Philly takes on Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday.
