DE - Miami Dolphins - IR
Miami Dolphins edge rusher Jaelan Phillips, who went down Friday with a non-contact injury, was confirmed to have torn his Achilles, ending his season.
Phillips, a third-year pass rusher and former Day 1 pick, suffered his injury during the Dolphins' Black Friday contest. The young edge was enjoying a strong season — he had 6.5 sacks in eight games, including an active five-game sack streak. The injury ends his 2023 campaign and likely could bleed into his 2024 season.
Dolphins LB Jaelan Phillips is officially inactive for a Week 5 matchup with the Giants.
Phillips came into Sunday listed as questionable with an oblique injury. After missing Week 4, the Dolphins will have the linebacker sit out another week as he looks to return to full health. The Dolphins D/ST is still a solid play against a weak Giants’ offense.
Jaelan Phillips (quad) popped up on the injury report after logging a limited practice session on Friday. He is officially listed as questionable for Week 9.
The "limited" designation is relatively vague since it doesn't clarify whether the player missed a couple reps here and there, if they suffered an injury mid-practice and could not return, or somewhere in between. For now, Phillips appears to be a true game-time decision heading into Miami's clash with the Beras.
The Miami Dolphins have selected edge rusher Jaelan Phillips, with the No. 18 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Jaelan Phillips comes with a concerning injury history but is arguably the most talented edge rusher in the 2021 NFL Draft class. Explosive with good hands and ankle flexion, Phillips can win with both power and finesse. He likely punched his card as the first edge rusher off the board thanks to an exceptional Pro Day performance. Double-digit sack seasons should be in the cards for the intriguing rookie.
