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.

Phillips was drafted in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft. In two seasons with the Bills, Phillips played in 19 games, recording 34 total tackles.

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