The Eagles announced on Saturday that they have elevated safety Andre Chachere and kicker Cameron Dicker from the practice squad for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Chachere made his 2022 debut last Sunday in the win over Jacksonville. He played 16 snaps, all on special teams, and recorded a tackle, stopping punt returner Jamal Agnew for no gain. Chachere played 16 games in 2021 and was second on the team in special teams snaps, while chipping in with 10 tackles and a pass deflection on defense.

Dicker will make his NFL debut on Sunday in place of Jake Elliott, who suffered a right ankle injury against the Jaguars. A rookie free agent out of Texas, Dicker spent time in the preseason with the Rams and the Ravens where he was successful on his one field goal and all five extra point attempts in two games, one with each team respectively. He also handled punting duties in those contests. The Eagles signed Dicker to the practice squad earlier this week.

On the other sideline on Sunday will be Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. As a freshman at Texas, Dicker's 40-yard field goal gave the Longhorns a 48-45 win over Murray's Oklahoma Sooners. Dicker scored the most points (386) by a kicker and field goals (60) in program history. He was a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award (best punter in the country) in 2021 and was a first-team All-Big 12 selection.

Both Chachere and Dicker will revert back to the practice squad following the game. The Eagles did not activate tackle Andre Dillard from Injured Reserve ahead of Sunday's game, so he will not be eligible to play. Jack Driscoll is starting for the injured Jordan Mailata, who was downgraded to out with a shoulder injury.
