Browns' Phillip Gaines: Claimed by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines was claimed off waivers by the Browns on Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Gaines should help provide the Browns with added depth to a depleted secondary for Sunday's game. Whether he projects as a longterm mainstay seems uncertain at the moment. Either way, Gaines could be asked to help out during Sunday's contest.

Phillip Gaines: Cut after poor Week 9 outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines was released Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Gaines earned a starting cornerback spot shortly after Vontae Davis' in-season retirement, but when your starting corner ends up getting a bunch of tackles and pass interference calls, that's not a good thing. The Bills called up undrafted rookie Levi Wallace from the practice squad in a corresponding move, while Ryan Lewis looks like the best bet to temporarily take over starting corner duties across from Tre'Davious White.

Bills' Phillip Gaines: Career-high 10 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines accumulated a career-best 10 tackles (nine solo) during Monday's 26-5 loss to the Patriots.

Gaines was all over the field Monday night, as he attempted to stop Tom Brady and the Patriots' high-powered offense. Gaines had just 16 tackles prior to Monday's contest, so don't expect him to repeat this career-best performance on a regular basis.

Bills' Phillip Gaines: Back in starter's role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines posted seven tackles (three solo) and one pass defensed in Sunday's loss to the Texans. He was on the field for all 61 defensive plays.

After missing part of the season due to injury while also having to share the starting role with Ryan Lewis following the bizarre retirement of Vontae Davis, Gaines was the clear-cut starter for Week 6 and posted his biggest statistical day of the season. Gaines had a key penalty in the fourth quarter that helped the Texans come back against the Bills but also had some good plays as well, as part of a defense that's been nothing short of excellent the past two games. While Lewis might suit up again and see some action while Gaines sits a few plays, it seems the Bills are pretty happy with their defense right now and the starting role is Gaines' to run with.

Bills' Phillip Gaines: Back in action for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines suited up for the first time in three weeks during Sunday's win over the Titans, logging two solo tackles.

Gaines suffered a dislocated elbow in a Week 2 loss to the Chargers and missed the next game due to the injury. Then, the Bills kept him out of action for a second game even though he was mostly healed. While Ryan Lewis got the Week 5 start across from stud starter Tre'Davious White, it was Gaines that saw the bulk of the action with 40 defensive snaps to Lewis' 16. Expect the playing time to continue trending toward the more experienced Gaines so long as he's healthy and performing up to coach Sean McDermott's standards.
