Kenny Phillips is, as you might expect, taking time off from OTAs to rest a sore knee.
But a source close to Phillips said he’s expected to be back on the field next week when the Eagles have a mandatory minicamp, according to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com.
Phillips missed nine games last year with knee problems, leading to the Giants allowing him to walk out the door.
He’s been a good player when well, but that’s not the kind of thing you can count on at this point.
When he did work early in OTAs, he was on the second team behind Nate Allen and Patrick Chung, in what could be an indication the Eagles aren’t banking everything on him playing.
