Bengals' Darius Phillips: Snags four picks in eight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips had five tackles (four solo) and four interceptions while returning 17 kicks for 373 yards in eight games this season.

It ended up being a remarkable season for Phillips, as he played only 109 defensive snaps but still managed to lead the team with four interceptions. The 24-year-old is under contract for 2020 and should enter training camp as a depth cornerback and return man.

Bengals' Darius Phillips: Receiving first 2019 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips will make his first start of the season Sunday against the Browns, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old missed eight games in the middle of the season due to a knee injury, but he'll start at cornerback Sunday with Williams Jackson (shoulder) sidelined. Phillips has played only 56 defensive snaps through seven games in 2019, so the extended defensive reps should prove valuable for the 2018 fifth-round pick.

Phillips also handled one punt return for no yardage gain. The second-year pro played 14 snaps on special teams (54 percent) during Sunday's divisional loss and appears to have surpassed Alex Erickson as the Bengals' primary kick returner.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (knee) will likely be activated off injured reserve in the coming weeks, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Bengals' Darius Phillips: Eyeing return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals are expected to activate Phillips (knee) from injured reserve later in the season, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Phillips worked on the side at Monday's practice. The second-year pro hasn't yet been designated to return, but he's a strong candidate to receive one of Cincinnati's two available designations along with John Ross (shoulder). The depth cornerback and special-teams contributor could return to game action for the Bengals as soon as Week 12 versus the Jets.

Bengals' Darius Phillips: Injury details disclosed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Zac Taylor said Thursday that Phillips was placed on injured reserve due to loose cartilage in his knee which flared up, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Phillips is reportedly a candidate to return later in the season, though his placement on IR rules him out until Week 12 at the earliest. In Phillips' absence, expect Alex Erickson to serve as the top kick and punt returner in Cincinnati.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (knee) is expected to participate in practice Sunday after he passed his physical.

The timetable for Phillips to receive activation off the PUP list was originally a few weeks, but he was able to achieve activation Sunday. He was a fifth-round pick in 2018 out of Western Michigan, and had 22 tackles in 15 games during his rookie season. The 24-year-old is expected to vie for playing time as a depth cornerback and on special teams heading into 2019.
