The Philadelphia Eagles signed free agent kicker Cameron Dicker to the practice squad Tuesday, providing depth while Jake Elliott works through a foot injury suffered last week, in the win over Jacksonville.

Ironically, the Eagles opponent on Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals find themselves in a similar kicking situation with their kicker Matt Prater, who is dealing with a hip injury.

Dicker spent time with the Los Angeles Rams and Baltimore Ravens during training camp and was a kicker and punter for the University of Texas.

Dicker went 13-of-15 on field goals, 49-50 on extra points for Longhorns last season. 

He was Texas’ all-time leader in FGs (60) and attempts (79) and also averaged 46.8 yards per punt last season for the longhorns. 

"Everybody has got a possibility to play on Sunday," said Eagles special teams coordinator Michael Clay on Tuesday. "We're still only Tuesday right here, so we're looking forward to another good work week in terms of practice and everything, and we'll see how everything goes as the week progresses."

If Elliott can't go Sunday, expectg Dicker to kick for the Eagles.
