Phillips, who is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, was filling in for starting strong safety , who missed Sunday's game with a right shoulder injury. According the head coach Jon Gruden, Lynch could return next week.

He'll be needed, as starting cornerback played despite a bad hamstring, but reserve defensive backs and missed the contest with hamstring injuries.

Starting cornerback Brian Kelly was lost for the year earlier this season with a torn left pectoral muscle originally suffered during a 38-35 overtime loss to Indianapolis on October 6.
