According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Eagles have added kicker Cameron Dicker to their practice squad. The team also released tight end Dalton Keene from the practice squad.
The #Eagles are signing kicker Cameron Dicker to the practice squad, per source.
Jake Elliott got banged up late in Sunday’s game. If he can’t go this week, it’d be Dicker the Kicker.

The move comes after Jake Elliott suffered a leg injury late in the Birds’ win over the Jaguars. While the injury didn’t force Elliott out of the game, it’s significant enough for the team to add some insurance.
Special teams coordinator Michael Clay told reporters that Elliott has a chance to play in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals, though his status will continue to be evaluated over the next couple days at practice.
Dicker, 22, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Los Angeles Rams this past summer before being released in August. He was then picked up by the Baltimore Ravens on Aug. 26, and was waived just two days later.
In four years at Texas, Dicker made 60 of 70 field goal attempts (75.95%), with his longest kick at 57.
