  • Falcons' Clark Phillips: Earns starting role

    Phillips finished 2023 with 27 tackles (22 solo) and five pass defenses in 11 appearances.

    A rookie fourth-round pick, Phillips played exclusively on special teams to start the campaign but carved out a starting role down the stretch, supplanting Jeff Okudah. Over the final five weeks, Phillips recorded 26 tackles and four pass defenses. A.J. Terrell is locked into the top cornerback spot, but Phillips figures to have a shot at the No. 2 gig in 2024, though the Falcons will presumably look to improve their defensive back depth during the offseason.

  • Falcons' Clark Phillips: Logs three tackles in loss

    Phillips (leg) recorded three solo tackles in Thursday's 24-0 exhibition loss to the Steelers.

    Phillips was carted off the field Aug. 8 with a leg injury before returning to practice a week later. His presence in Thursday's preseason finale indicates his health is back up to par ahead of the regular season. The 28-year-old is competing for a depth role in the Falcons' secondary.

  • Falcons' Clark Phillips: Back at practice

    Phillips (leg) was back at practice Sunday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Phillips was carted off during Tuesday's joint practice with the Dolphins, but he appears to be on the cusp of a return. That being said, Sunday's practice was unpadded, so the cornerback's status for Friday's game with the Bengals is still uncertain.

  • Falcons' Clark Phillips: Exits practice with injury

    Phillips suffered a leg injury during a joint practice with the Dolphins on Tuesday and had to be carted off, Alanis Thames of The Associated Press reports.

    The cornerback tried to break up a pass, couldn't get up without trainer assistance and struggled to apply weight to his lower left leg, but the injury is not serious and he is listed as day-to-day, per Josh Kendall of The Athletic. Phillips was selected in the fourth round of the 2023 Draft after winning the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year award last year. The University of Utah product is projected as a backup corner for the Falcons as Week 1 gets closer.

  • Falcons' Clark Phillips: Added to Atlanta secondary

    The Falcons selected Phillips in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 113th overall.

    Phillips played three seasons at Utah, serving a significant role in his final two years. He's known as a ballhawk and backed that up with nine interceptions during his collegiate career -- six of which came in his junior year. There will be questions about Phillips' athleticism and physicality, as he ran a 4.51 40-yard dash while standing only 5-foot-9 and 184 pounds.
