When it was announced that Browns linebacker Jacob Phillips had suffered a torn bicep back in August, there were fears that Phillips would be out for the entire season. While Phillips will remain out for the foreseeable future, it looks like the Browns can expect to get him back this season. Phillips recently took to Instagram to let people know that he'd return to the field in November.
A 3rd round draft pick in 2020, Phillips had been getting a good amount of reps with the first team defense during training camp. The 22-year-old out of LSU was coming off an encouraging rookie season that saw him appear in nine games, starting three of them, while logging 25 tackles (15 solo) and one QB hit. A midseason return from Phillips would be great news for an already banged-up Browns linebacker group that struggled for much of Week 1's game against the Chiefs.
