    Saints S Kenny Phillips thrives Sunday in career-rebound

    Safety Kenny Phillips might not have imagined two weeks ago that he would play a key role in Week 2 for the Saints. After all, that team had just cut him. But Phillips, who re-signed earlier this week and landed a starting assignment after a season-ending injury befell Rafael Bush, indeed made eight tackles (five solo) in the loss to Sunday to Tampa Bay. Phillips, a former first round pick, hadn't played in an NFL game since 2012, but he was around the ball often Sunday. With Jairus Byrd's injury status still up in the air, Phillips could again be in line for significant playing time in Week 3 against run-based Carolina, making him an interesting sleeper option in IDP leagues.
