Phillips suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in the Dolphins' Nov. 24 win over the Jets and is now over two months removed from surgery.

  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Has season-ending surgery

    Phillips (Achilles) had surgery Wednesday and will not play for the remainder of the season, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. The 24-year-old pass rusher sustained his first major professional injury in Friday's win over the Jets. Up to this point in the season, Phillips had blossomed into one of the best young pass rushers in the league, recording 6.5 sacks in just 351 snaps this year compared to his seven sacks in 796 snaps last year. With Phillips sidelined, the Dolphins will rely on veteran Emmanuel Ogbah to fill his role on the defense as they strive to secure a top seed in the AFC.

Phillips had recorded one sack, three tackles behind the line of scrimmage and one pass deflected before exiting Friday's game with the injury.

  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Snags first career interception

    Phillips logged six total tackles (five solo), including two sacks and two tackles for loss, while also grabbing an interception in Sunday's 20-13 win over the Raiders. Phillips was the only Dolphin to record a sack during Sunday's contest, and he's now just half a sack behind the team's leader Bradley Chubb. The third-year edge rusher has dealt with some injuries this season, but he's still on pace to have the best year of his career. Through seven games, the Miami product has logged 39 total tackles, including 5.5 sacks and four tackles for loss. Expect Phillips to continue causing problems for opposing offenses for the remainder of the season.

  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Logs sack in third straight game

    Phillips recorded five tackles (two solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Chiefs. Phillips has turned it on since returning from the oblique injury that sidelined him for two games earlier this season, registering at least five tackles and a sack in three straight contests. When Miami returns from its Week 10 bye, Phillips should get plenty more chances to rush the passer versus Las Vegas in Week 11.

Phillips and the Dolphins' defense will have their hands full in Week 9 against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in Germany.

    Phillips (oblique) is active ahead of Sunday's game against the Panthers, David Furones of The Sun Sentinel reports.

  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Questionable for Sunday vs. Giants

    Philips (oblique) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Giants. Phillips was limited at practice the entire week after sitting out in Week 4 at Buffalo, so he seems like a coin-flip bid to suit up for Week 5. If he's forced to sit out for the third game this season, Andrew Van Ginkel should continue to see increased work on the edge.

  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Listed as questionable

    Phillips (back) has been given a questionable designation ahead of Sunday's contest against the Broncos. Phillips was a full participant at Friday's practice after logging limited sessions to start the week. As a result, he looks to be trending in the right direction, but his final status is not likely to be confirmed until closer to kickoff. Emmanuel Ogbah would presumably fill in at weakside linebacker if Phillips cannot go.

  • Dolphins' Jaelan Phillips: Notches three sacks

    Phillips registered three sacks, four tackles (three solo) and a pass defensed in the Dolphins' 33-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday. Phillips' pass defensed was the first of his career, while his four tackles bring him to 33 on the season. The three sacks was, of course, the highlight of the day for the rookie, who was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round of the 2021 Draft. Even more impressive, he accomplished the feat on only 49 percent of the defensive snaps played. Now with 6.5 sacks on the season, Phillips will look to top himself Sunday against the Giants.
