Philon (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Oakland.
Philon sustained the ankle injury last week against the Seahawks but won't be forced to miss any games. The 24-year-old should have his usual role as a rotational defensive tackle against the Raiders.
Philon (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Philon suffered the ankle injury last week against the Seahawks and started the week as a non-participant, but he practiced on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. Justin Jones would see heavier snaps as a reserve defensive tackle if Philon is unable to suit up Sunday.
Philon is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks due to an ankle injury.
Philon was carted off the field after sustaining an ankle injury, and is questionable to return to Sunday's tilt. As long as Philon remains sidelined, Justin Jones and Isaac Rochell could receive increased defensive opportunities.
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.
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.
