John Phillips: Cut by Kansas City

Phillips was released by the Chiefs on Tuesday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

Analysis: Phillips' time with the Chiefs did not last long, as the tight end signed with the team just over a week ago. The nine-year NFL veteran will look to latch onto another team before the start of training camp.

John Phillips: Joins Chiefs

Phillips signed a contract with the Chiefs on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Phillips spent 2018 in Arizona and caught three passes for 38 yards in eight games. The 31-year-old has topped 100 receiving yards only once in his nine-year career, so he shouldn't be expected to factor much into the passing game if he manages to make the 53-man roster.

John Phillips: Active Sunday

Phillips (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reports.

Analysis: Phillips returned to practice in a limited fashion late in the week, so he'll be good to go Sunday while providing Ricky Seals-Jones and Jermaine Gresham with depth at tight end.

John Phillips: Deemed questionable for Week 12

Phillips (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Phillips was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday after having been sidelined to begin the week, and it remains to be seen whether he'll suit up during Sunday's game against the Chargers. The veteran tight end has not been targeted during two starts with the Cardinals, and will serve as a rotational blocker and special teams player if he's able to play Week 12.

John Phillips: Listed as limited participant

Phillips (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Phillips was upgraded to a limited practice after being sidelined to begin the week. The veteran tight end is still nursing a knee injury sustained during last week's loss to the Raiders, but appears to be progressing well in his recovery. If Phillips is able to suit up against the Chargers on Sunday, he'll see usage as a rotational blocker and special-teams player.

John Phillips: Not practicing to begin week

Phillips (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Phillips appears to have sustained a knee injury during a Week 10 loss to the Raiders, putting his availability for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers in question. The veteran tight end has only seen usage as a rotational blocker during his two games with the Cardinals, so it's unlikely that his tentative absence would have a notable impact on Arizona's offense.

John Phillips: Signs with Cardinals

Phillips signed a contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Phillips will likely serve as a reserve tight end behind Ricky Seals-Jones and Jermaine Gresham. The 10-year pro has been utilized more as a blocker than a pass catcher in his career, and has recorded only 390 yards and five touchdowns in 112 games played. Philips replaced fellow tight end Gabe Homes on Arizona's 53-man roster.

John Phillips: Released by New Orleans

Phillips was cut by the Saints on Saturday, Joel A. Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Analysis: Phillips has been a career backup, recording just 390 yards and five touchdowns in 112 games played. He played one game with the Saints in 20177 and his release won't shake the offense up at all. He may look to sign on with another team in need of veteran tight end play.
