Bills' Harrison Phillips eager to prove he's completely healthy

Almost two years removed from an ACL tear, defensive tackle Harrison Phillips is close to feelings like his old self.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Bills defensive tackle Harrison Phillips had a tough break after tearing his ACL back in 2019, and last season was just a glimpse of Phillips getting back on track.

Almost two years removed from his injury, he’s now looking for a breakout year, personally, and not just getting to his old self but an even better version of that.

"I feel a lot closer to that," Phillips said. "You hear all the time that it’s two years removed with a significant injury like that before players are truly themselves, so I'm just counting the blessings every day, working my (butt) off."

"This is a very important year with the Buffalo Bills, and important year for myself. I'm working hard as I can to come back better than any previous year I’ve had in the NFL."

As Phillips continues his recover, it hasn’t slowed down his drive for helping kids.
