The 28-year-old defensive lineman collected 27 tackles, two sacks, two passes defensed and two fumble recoveries across 11 games played for the Raiders last season, and he'll now work for another opportunity to log snaps on an active roster.

  • Chargers' Darius Philon: Earns sack in win

    Philon registered five tackles (four solo) and one sack in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Titans. Philon tallied his second sack in the last three weeks, taking advantage of Melvin Ingram's outside pass rush to swallow up Marcus Mariota in the pocket. The imminent return of Joey Bosa (foot) will likely mean that Philon will be used more as a situational pass rusher, potentially in replace of Brandon Mebane. While IDP owners will want to stay away from Philon with the return of Bosa, the 24-year-old's emergence as a pass-rushing threat adds yet another capable defensive weapon to a team loaded with playmakers.

  • Chargers' Darius Philon: First sack of season

    Philon recorded two tackles (one solo) and a sack across 34 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Raiders. Philon reached the quarterback for the first time this season Sunday and now has seven tackles on the year. However, with Corey Liuget returning from suspension last week, Philon will see a drop in defensive snaps and will likely lose his role as starter, leaving him with little IDP value.

  • Chargers' Darius Philon: Earns first-team reps

    Philon has been receiving first-team reps at defensive end as Joey Bosa continues his holdout, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports. With Joey Bosa continuing his holdout, Philon has stepped in and performed well during first-team reps. While the second-year pro will likely take a back seat once Bosa arrives to camp, it appears as if Philon has likely worked his way into San Diego's defensive line rotation and should see an increase in snaps heading into the 2016 season.

  • Chargers' Darius Philon: Poised for an increased role in 2016

    Philon operated as San Diego's starting defensive end while Joey Bosa sat out offseason activities over a contract dispute, per The Chargers' sixth-round selection in 2015, Philon had been granted draft eligibility as an underclassmen, entering the league as a redshirt sophomore. He was appropriately deemed a very raw prospect, but after just one campaign in the pros, Philon has seemed to have worked himself into San Diego's rotation on the defensive line. Even with the addition of first-rounder Joey Bosa, Philon appears set to see an uptick in snaps during the upcoming 2016 season.
