Eagles Kicker Jake Elliott Ruled Out with Concussion
The Eagles lost a key weapon when kicker Josh Elliott left Sunday's game at Dallas.
Elliot was being checked for a head injury after making a tackle on the opening kickoff. He missed a 34-yard field goal and had a couple of short kicks.
NBC sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya announced that Elliott has been ruled out for the rest of the game with a concussion.
If the Eagles need a kicker the rest of the way, expect it to be linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill, who was practicing kicking into the net on the Eagles sideline and kicked off after the Eagles second score.
Elliott is 17-for-20 on field goals this season.
Elliott was signed off the Bengals' practice squad, coming to Philadelphia after kicker Caleb Sturgis was injured in Week 1. He was a fifth round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals and immediately became a fan favorite earning his spot as the club's place kicker, after drilling a game-winning 61-yard field goal to be the Giants in Week 3.
