Phillips is currently listed atop the depth chart at one of the defensive tackle spots, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

It's only a matter of time before No. 9 overall pick Ed Oliver takes over the role, but for now the energetic Phillips -- who posted 12 tackles and no sacks in 12 games for Buffalo after being dumped by Miami last season -- will keep the seat warm. At least this shows Phillips should have a chance to start should anything happen to Oliver or if the rookie's slow to adjust to the pro game, but make no mistake -- the Bills don't plan to have Oliver watch and learn from the bench.
