Texans' Scottie Phillips: May not be done for season
Phillips (ankle) has a chance to retake the field this season, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Texans' Scottie Phillips: Placed on IR
The Texans placed Phillips (leg) on injured reserve Tuesday.
Phillips had seen his role out of the Houston backfield increase over the past two weeks following the trade of Mark Ingram to the Saints. After he was active just once over the first seven weeks of the season, Phillips logged 19 snaps on offense between Weeks 8 and 9 and carried six times for 13 yards. He picked up the leg injury in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, and the Texans determined it was serious enough to keep him sidelined for at least their next three games. Phillips won't be eligible to return to the 53-man roster until the Texans' Week 14 matchup with the Seahawks on Dec. 12.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Scottie Phillips: Questionable due to leg injury
Phillips (leg) is questionable to return for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
It remains to be seen if Phillips is able to return to action, though his availability won't have a significant fantasy impact since he plays a depth role in the Texans' backfield. David Johnson, Rex Burkhead and Phillip Lindsay should remain the top backfield options for Houston.... See More ... See Less

Texans' Scottie Phillips: Activated for Week 8
Phillips had five carries for 11 yards and caught two of three targets for nine yards in Sunday's 38-22 loss to the Rams.
Those keeping track of Houston's backfield following the trade of Mark Ingram should count Phillips (15 snaps) as a winner. His eight touches/targets tied Rex Burkhead atop the four-man backfield. David Johnson (11 snaps) and Phillip Lindsay (eight) combined for six touches. As Tuesday's trade deadline nears, there could be a further shakeup.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Scottie Phillips: Could dress after Ingram trade
Phillips could fill a roster vacancy after the Texans traded Mark Ingram to the Saints on Wednesday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The immediate impact of the trade centers on increased roles for David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay, two backs that have been active every game this season, but Phillips is also likely to be part of the active lineup going forward. He has been active for one game this season and recorded just two carries for nine yards in 2020 as a rookie, but Phillips becomes a person of interest. He led Houston in rushing during the preseason, and the team, at 1-6, is in full-on evaluation mode. Rex Burkhead (hip) is also in the mix for more work due to Ingram's departure.... See More ...

Texans' Scottie Phillips: Records full practice Wednesday
Phillips (illness) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

Texans' Scottie Phillips: On 53-man roster
Phillips is one of five running backs to make Houston's 53-man roster out of camp, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Phillips led the Texans in rushing during the preseason, primarily facing reserve defensive units, but the team's decision-makers were impressed with his powerful running style. He averaged 4.28 yards after contact during the preseason, per Pro Football Focus. "That guy earned a spot on this roster," Houston head coach David Culley said. Phillips, who started on the practice squad last season and played sparingly in eight games, may not get many touches to start the season, but his story recalls that of the franchise's all-time leading rusher, Arian Foster -- both were undrafted free agents that started on the team's practice squad....

Texans' Scottie Phillips: Paces backs in preseason loss
Phillips rushed eight times for a team-high 73 yards in Saturday's 23-16 loss to the Buccaneers in preseason Week 3.
Phillips finished the preseason as Houston's leading rusher, but it's probably not enough to unseat one of the four veteran backs ahead of him on the depth chart. Of the four, Rex Burkhead's spot is least secure, but the Texans might keep him and look to trade the 31-year-old to a team that needs a veteran back.... See More ... See Less
