Eagles LB Jason Phillips tore his right ACL during Sunday's training camp practice and is done for the season.

A journeyman special teamer and inside linebacker depth, Phillips was battling for a roster spot. He'll join Jeremy Maclin on injured reserve shortly.

Eagles agreed to terms with LB Jason Phillips, formerly of the Panthers, on a two-year contract.

The journeyman former fifth-round pick appeared in all 16 games for the Panthers last season, playing 103 snaps on defense. Phillips is injury prone, but could carve out a role in an Eagles defense that's going to be on the field a lot in 2013 because of Chip Kelly's quick-strike offense.

Panthers re-signed LB Jason Phillips to a one-year contract.

Phillips was scheduled for restricted free agency, but Carolina didn't want to pay the nearly $1.3 million it would have required to tender Phillips at the "original pick" level. Instead, he'll return on a minimum base salary. Phillips, 26, appeared in four games last year, making four tackles on defense before landing on I.R. with a calf injury. He'll compete for a roster spot.

Panthers placed LB Jason Phillips (calf) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Phillips lasted one week as the fill-in starter on the weak side before suffering the injury in mid-October. The former Ravens fifth-rounder is a restricted free agent in 2012.

Panthers LB Jason Phillips was forced from Sunday's game with a calf injury.

He's done for the day. Thomas Williams (neck) is already out, and starter Omar Gaither was just shaken up with an apparent lower leg injury in the fourth quarter. Depth is becoming a major concern at linebacker.

The Panthers will start Jason Phillips at weak-side linebacker this week.

Phillips, who was claimed off waivers from the Ravens a month ago, will be making his first career NFL start. He replaces Jason Williams, who has been benched due to lack of production. The Panthers' defense will continue to be one to attack for fantasy purposes.

Panthers claimed LB Jason Phillips off waivers from the Ravens.

Someone in the Carolina front office must've had a high grade on Phillips coming out of TCU, because he's hardly played. A two-down thumper type like new Panthers starting MLB Dan Connor, Phillips will focus on special teams.

Ravens waived LB Jason Phillips.

One of the Ravens' core special teamers, Phillips was inactive for Week 1's win over the Steelers with a concussion. A fifth-round pick in 2009, Phillips tallied four tackles in nine games a season ago. He could be re-signed later this season.

Phillips is the only Ravens player not putting in a full practice this week. He's a core special teamer.

Ravens second-year ILB Jason Phillips has reportedly been "atrocious" in pass defense early in training camp.

Phillips' foot speed is being described as "very, very slow." The 2009 fifth-rounder missed all of last season after tearing his LCL, and it sounds like he's struggling to recapture his pre-injury form. He's not guaranteed a roster spot this summer.
Wed, Aug 4, 2010 03:01:00 PM

Coach John Harbaugh says ILB Jason Phillips (knee) is healthy for the first time as a Raven.

Phillips tore his LCL at the 2009 NFL Combine and spent all of last year on injured reserve. The inside linebacker will fight for playing time behind Dannell Ellerbe and Ray Lewis while trying to carve out a special teams role.

Ravens placed ILB Jason Phillips (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

He'll take a redshirt rookie year and come back in 2010 competing to play next to Ray Lewis. Phillips struggled to recover from offseason LCL surgery.
Sat, Sep 5, 2009 10:45:00 PM

Ravens fifth-round LB Jason Phillips (LCL surgery) was activated from the PUP list.

Phillips practiced for the first time since since tearing his LCL at the combine in February. He was considered one of the better inside linebackers available, but the injury dropped his stock. He'll back up Ray Lewis and Tavares Gooden.

Ravens fifth-round LB Jason Phillips (knee) watched Monday's practice from the sidelines.

It was hoped that Phillips would be ready for training camp after tearing his LCL at the NFL combine in February. He could be a candidate to start the season on the PUP list.
