Jake Elliott got banged up late in Sunday’s game. If he can’t go this week, it’d be Dicker the Kicker.

Dicker was Texas’ all-time leader in FGs (60) and kicked an 86.7 FG% last season. He also recorded a punt average of 46.8 yards.
Elliott was injured on a 43-yard FG attempt in the third quarter of Sunday’s win over Jacksonville. He later returned to drill a 28-yarder but was exhibiting visual discomfort. If Elliott can’t go vs. Arizona, Dicker will get the nod.
“Obviously, we will not ever leave a stone unturned and we’ll be ready in the case that Jake [Elliott] isn’t able to play,” Sirianni said yesterday. “Like I said, we’re hopeful that he will but we’ll be ready if he doesn’t. You can take that how you need to take that. We will be ready, though.”
