Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Harrison Phillips' 2019 season is over after tearing his ACL in his knee on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals at New Era Field.

Head coach Sean McDermott confirmed the injury during the introductory part of his Monday press conference with the media.

The second-year defensive lineman was injured on the first play of the Bengals' final drive of the fourth quarter.

Phillips had three tackles and a half a sack in three games this season. He had 35 tackles in his rookie season last year.

Now that Phillips is done for the season, the Bills are down to Ed Oliver, Jordan Philips, and Star Lotulelei at defensive tackle. However, the Bills do have a couple of players at the position on the practice squad in Kyle Peko and Vincent Taylor.

The Phillips news comes tough for the Bills so early in the season, esepecially on the day the team celebrated Pancho Billa, who announced Phillips being drafted in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
