  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Placed on IR

    The Browns placed Phillips (pectoral) on injured reserve Wednesday, Anthony Poisal of the team's official site reports.

    Phillips' placement on IR comes just two days after coach Kevin Stefanski said that his injury is likely a season-ending pectoral tear. Last season, a biceps injury limited Phillips to just four appearances. In his stead, Cleveland will likely lean on Deion Jones, who was acquired from Atlanta via trade Oct. 10.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Likely done for season

    Phillips is believed to have sustained a season-ending pectoral injury during Sunday's loss at Baltimore, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

    It's a tough blow to a Cleveland front seven that was already struggling to defend the run. If Phillips does indeed miss the remainder of the 2022 campaign, the Browns will probably need to lean more heavily on Deion Jones at linebacker.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Will not return

    Phillips left Sunday's game against the Ravens with a shoulder injury and will not return, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Phillips' inability to return will force Deion Jones to handle middle-linebacker duties for the rest of the game. The former will work to return in Week 8 against the Bengals.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Reaches double-digit tackles

    Phillips recorded 10 tackles (four solo) in the Browns' 38-15 loss to the Patriots on Sunday.

    Phillips has now recorded double-digit tackles in two straight games while playing 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps. The third-year pro has filled in admirably, at least on the stat sheet, for Anthony Walker who is out for the season due to a torn quadriceps. Phillips will look to keep stacking up the tackles Sunday against the Ravens.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Records sack in loss

    Phillips had 10 tackles and one sack in Week 5's 30-28 loss to the Chargers.

    For the second consecutive week, Phillips played 100 percent of the defensive snaps while filling in for the injured Anthony Walker (quadriceps), who will miss the rest of the season. It should also be noted that the Browns were gashed on the ground by the Chargers, who rolled up 238 rushing yards (7.0 YPC). Following the game, Cleveland acquired linebacker Deion Jones (shoulder) from Atlanta, and he is expected to be part of the linebacker rotation, which could mean a drop in playing time for Phillips.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Productive as starter

    Phillips tallied seven tackles (six solo) during the Browns' 23-20 loss to Atlanta on Sunday.

    Phillips started Sunday's game and tied for the team lead in tackles. Since Anthony Walker (quadriceps) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, Phillips should continue to serve as the Browns' starting middle linebacker going forward.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Stepping up for Walker

    Phillips will start in place of the injured Anthony Walker (quadriceps) in Sunday's game against Atlanta, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports.

    Phillips filled in after Walker left last week's win over the Steelers and recorded seven tackles, including a sack, along with a pass defensed. Walker has since been ruled out for the rest of the season, so Phillips steps in at middle linebacker and will relay play calls on defense. The three-year veteran has played 16 games since being selected in the third round of the 2020 Draft.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Fills in for Walker

    Phillips had seven tackles, a sack and a pass defensed in Thursday's 29-17 win over the Steelers in Week 3.

    Phillips, normally part of the linebacker rotation, was given extra playing time after Anthony Walker was carted off the field with a knee injury. He has a modest 10 tackles through three games but should see more time in the middle of the defense if Walker misses time.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Clears COVID protocols

    The Browns activated Phillips (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Phillips played 24 defensive snaps in his season debut versus Baltimore in Week 14, after coming off IR, but he then missed Week 15 because of a positive test for COVID-19. Now that he's gained full clearance, the second-year pro can be considered on track for Saturday's game in Green Bay.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Lands on COVID list

    Phillips was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday after testing positive for the virus, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Phillips was activated from injured reserve last week and had three tackles in his season debut, but he's now in the health and safety protocols.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Activated by Browns

    The Browns have activated Phillips (biceps) ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Ravens, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    After initially expecting to miss the entire 2021 campaign, Phillips was designated to return by Cleveland earlier in the week and now has a chance to make his season debut Week 14. With Anthony Walker (undisclosed) ruled out, the second-year middle linebacker could be in line for a decent workload right away.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Designated to return

    Phillips (biceps) was designated to return from injured reserve Monday.

    Phillips was initially expected to miss the entire 2021 campaign after he underwent surgery to repair a torn biceps in late August. However, he'll now be eligible to return to practice and will be able to be activated from injured reserve within 21 days. While it's not yet clear when the 22-year-old could return to game action, it appears as though he'll be back on the field prior to the end of the season.

  • Browns' Jacob Phillips: Shifts to injured reserve

    Phillips (biceps) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Phillips recently underwent surgery to repair a torn biceps, so it's hardly a surprise to see him land on injured reserve. He'll be eligible to be activated after missing three games but is expected to be sidelined for the full 2021 campaign.
