Cardinals' Jordan Phillips: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (illness) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jets.

Phillips has enjoyed a strong start to the season with two sacks and a forced fumble through four games. He's shaken off the illness that kept him out of practice this week, and the 2015 second-round pick should handle a full workload against the Jets.

Cardinals' Jordan Phillips: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (illness) was a non-participant during Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Phillips seems to be dealing with a non-COVID-19 related illness, however, the ailment is serious enough to force him to miss practice time. He'll hope to shake off the illness, but if he can't play in week 5, Angelo Blackson would be in line to draw the start at defensive end.

Cardinals' Jordan Phillips: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against Detroit.

Phillips was able to log limited practice sessions during the week after failing to suit up Wednesday, but he was able to get healthy enough to play. Now healthy, look for the Oklahoma product to assume his usual starting role at defensive end.

Cardinals' Jordan Phillips: Pegged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

After being a non-participant during Wednesday's practice, Phillips has logged two straight limited sessions. We won't know his final status until 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, and if he's ruled out, expect Angelo Blackson to bump into a starting DE role.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Heads to the desert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips is signing a three-year, $30 million contract with the Cardinals, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

The 2015 second-round pick enjoyed a breakout season for the Bills in 2019, posting career highs of 31 tackles, 9.5 sacks and 16 QB hits while starting nine of 16 games. The Bills can afford to lose Phillips given that they have Ed Oliver and Star Lotulelei on their roster, while the Cardinals get some much-needed pass rush help for the interior of their defensive line. Phillips was originally drafted by the Dolphins and produced just 5.5 sacks in 48 games for Miami.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Wraps up breakthrough season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips, who registered a career-high 9.5 sacks in 2019, will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Beginning the season as a depth piece on a talented defensive line, no one saw Phillips leading the team in sacks for the season, but he did just that with the out-of-nowhere 9.5, more than all of his four previous NFL seasons combined. Phillips won't come as cheap as the one-year, $4.5 million he signed with the Bills last March, so the team will need to make a decision whether it wants to pony up on a longer-term deal. It helps that the Bills have tons of cap money if they want to make a play to keep him in the fold, but with 2019 first-rounder Ed Oliver being a long-term lock at defensive tackle, some bigger need team could come along for a price the Bills are unwilling to pay.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Adds to sack total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips had three total tackles -- two of which were sacks -- in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh.

Phillips has surprisingly powered his way to a team-leading 9.5 sacks on the season, even more surprising in that it's his sixth year in the NFL and he had just 5.5 for his entire career entering 2019. He brings a ton of energy to his game, and he somehow made enough of an impression that he's starting over prized rookie Ed Oliver, who's been no slouch in his own right. Phillips won't get too many tackles as an interior lineman and he typically doesn't log over 60 percent of the defensive snaps. However, he's turning into a steady source of sacks as he continues to consistently get a big push up the middle.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Ready for Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (knee) practiced fully Friday and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.

The Bills' surprising sack leader looks ready to go in a game that could be a good pitcher's duel between two excellent defenses.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips was listed as limited for Thursday's practice due to a knee injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Phillips wasn't hindered to start Wednesday's session, so we'll have to assume it's something minor ahead of Sunday's game against Pittsburgh unless the Bills tell us otherwise. The veteran defensive tackle remains Buffalo's surprise sack leader with 7.5 through 13 games.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Takes down Fitzpatrick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips notched two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 37-20 win over the Dolphins.

The Bills afforded rookie Ed Oliver a chance to take over as a starter over the first few games, but Phillips has manned the role since the Week 6 bye. The 27-year-old defensive tackle has produced well, as he's generated seven sacks through 10 contests, exceeding his total from the previous 60 games combined.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Gets start in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips logged three tackles -- including a sack -- during Sunday's win over Washington.

The defensive tackle got the start over prized rookie Ed Oliver, a noteworthy fact in itself. Phillips logged 33 defensive snaps while Oliver saw only 18. Phillips is up to 6.0 sacks, which leads the team, and he's starting to set himself up for a nice payday considering he's working off a one-year journeyman deal. He's been a key factor in what's been one of the league's best defenses.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Super sub
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips logged two tackles and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Phillips has stepped up his game in the absence of teammate Harrison Phillips, who's out for the season with a knee injury, with the former now providing almost all the sub reps behind starters Star Lotulelei and first-round rookie Ed Oliver. In fact, Phillips outsnapped both of them in Week 7 in what was a tight game, with 40 snaps going to Phillips, 35 to Oliver and 29 to Lotulelei. Phillips is up to 12 tackles, 4.0 sacks (three came in one game) and the forced fumble for the season.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Monster game in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips had three sacks -- all in the first half -- during Sunday's win at Tennessee.

That gives the veteran 4.0 on the season. Phillips has been receiving rave reviews for his improved and high-energy play, especially once fellow DT and namesake Harrison Phillips went on injured reserve with a knee injury. However, he's still a rotational player and Sunday was more of a case where his number came up at the right time and he did a good job being in the right place on a few occasions. While Phillips has already set his new career high in sacks, his snap count of 30 or less in every game this season means you can probably do better among IDP defensive linemen.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Records first sack of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips notched three tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bengals.

Through three weeks, Phillips' role on Buffalo's defense has him playing between 25 and 30 snaps per game, primarily as a pass rusher in throwing situations. His three tackles versus the Bengals were a season high, albeit in a small sample size. He and the Bills defense will have their hands full in Week 4 when the Patriots come to town.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Back to work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips is back at practice Thursday after missing Wednesday's session due to an illness, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Even if he's still working through the bug to some degree, we'll expect Phillips to resume his depth defensive line role against the Giants, one that saw him play 25 defensive snaps and three special teams snaps in Week 1. The excitable veteran logged one tackle.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (illness) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Phillips will look to shake this bug by Sunday's game versus the Giants. He's been usurped by rookie first-round pick Ed Oliver for the starting defensive tackle role, but Phillips still played 25 snaps in Week 1 and an absence would hurt the defensive front's depth.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Passed by first-rounder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips is no longer receiving starting reps at defensive tackle, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.

This was never going to be the long-term plan, but the Bills have a history of making players earn their position. That's just what they did with highly touted first-rounder Ed Oliver, who's now at the top of the depth chart with the veteran Phillips as his backup. Phillips will play a valuable sub role for the Bills, but he's nowhere near the IDP radar.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Tops depth chart, for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Bumped down in pecking order?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips' shot to open the season as a starting defensive tackle took a hit when the Bills selected Ed Oliver with the No. 9 pick in the draft.

Originally, Phillips had been expected to compete with second-year man Harrison Phillips for a starting job next to Star Lotulelei after Kyle Williams retired following the 2018 season. But the Bills think they got a stud in Oliver, and while coach Sean McDermott favors open competitions more than most, the Bills didn't pick Oliver that high to watch him sit behind a journeyman like Jordan Phillips. Assuming everyone stays healthy, Jordan Phillips is likely the No. 4 man in the defensive-tackle rotation, where the Bills will play to his strength and use him off the bench to draw a spark for the defense.

Bills' Jordan Phillips: Re-ups with Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips re-signed on a one-year deal Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Phillips was a second-round pick by the Dolphins in 2015, but didn't fit into the team's plans any longer and the Bills scooped him up off waivers in October. Phillips was mostly a rotational player for Buffalo -- he logged 19 tackles, three pass breakups and a fumble recovery in 12 games for the Bills -- but the team likes his intensity and rah-rah nature, and seems willing to let him compete with Harrison Phillips for the available snaps stemming from long-time starter Kyle Williams' retirement.
