BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — It looks like the Buffalo Bills will be without one of their young defensive players for the rest of the season. Head coach Sean McDermott confirmed Monday afternoon that second-year defensive tackle Harrison Phillips has torn his ACL.
Phillips was injured in Sunday's game against the Bengals and walked off the field with training staff. He didn't return.
Dan Graziano of ESPN was the first to report the severity of the injury.

The Bills have two players of the same position on their practice squad in Kyle Peko and Vincent Taylor.
