John Phillips may have torn ACL. Ouch!

Tight end John Phillips‘ push for a large role in the Cowboys offense may have hit a huge roadblock.

Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News reports that Phillips “likely” suffered a torn ACL in his right knee against the Bengals.

“I’m going to stay positive and wait for [Monday] and see what the doctors get confirmed,” Phillips said.

Phillips backed up a strong training camp with four catches for 60 yards on Sunday night, leading all receivers.  He was pushing Martellus Bennett for playing time as the team’s backup tight end; Phillips showed great versatility in his ability to line up in multiple spots.

Now it appears that Phillips’ second NFL season could be over before it started.
