Broncos Place Cornerback On Season-Ending Injured Reserve

His season is over.

The Denver Broncos are placing cornerback Darius Phillips on the injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Phillips signed with the Broncos away from the Las Vegas Raiders at last cuts this season, playing just six defensive snaps for the team in an already stacked cornerback room. He was only active for nine games.

For his five-year career, the twenty-six-year-old has recorded 75 total tackles, three forced fumbles, five interceptions and 23 passes defended over 56 games played. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals, before joining the Broncos.

Phillips will be a depth option at cornerback again in 2023 as an unrestricted free agent. He is a former fifth-round pick by the Bengals in the 2018 NFL Draft.
