Phillips is averaging about 26 snaps per game as the third man in the defensive-tackle rotation behind veteran starters Star Lotulelei and Kyle Williams. The rookie has been doing a nice job and the coaching staff is happy with his progress, but he's not playing enough snaps or getting after the quarterback enough to warrant attention in IDP settings. Phillips' time will come, as he's already being groomed to take over Williams' spot when the 35-year-old eventually calls it a career.
Phillips' teammate Kyle Williams is listed as "week-to-week" with a knee injury suffered in Friday's preseason game.
Phillips, the team's third-rounder in April, has already been tabbed as the No. 3 defensive tackle so he's in line to get starter's time if Williams' injury lingers into the regular season.
