  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Notches sack in Week 5 loss

    Phillips recorded four tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

    Phillips handled his largest workload of the season, with 74 percent of defensive snaps, and in his expanded opportunity he recorded his best game as a pro. The rookie first-round pick will look to continue building momentum against the Jaguars in Week 6.

  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Returns to practice

    Phillips (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Phillips had been considered day-to-day since the beginning of August due to an unspecified injury, but he was back in action Wednesday. The 2021 first-rounder should have plenty of time to prepare for the start of the regular season, but it's not clear whether his absence will impact his usage in Saturday's preseason opener against the Bears.

    The specifics of the issue are unclear, though it appears Phillips isn't dealing with a significant injury. The rookie first-round pick will have a couple weeks to recover before the preseason opener Aug. 14 at Chicago.

  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Miami DE stays in town

    The Dolphins selected Phillips in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 18th overall.

    Phillips (6-foot-6, 260) has a concerning injury particularly with respect to concussions, but aside from that he's close to a blue-chip prospect at defensive end. He produced eight sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss in his 10 games with Miami (FL), where he transferred from UCLA. Phillips would have been a four-year starter at UCLA if not for the injuries, and those injuries might be the only reason he lasted until the 18th pick, too.
