The good news is that x-rays on Phillips' right knee came back negative, but the G-men don't know how long he'll be out, per the New York Post.
Expect an update on Phillips in the near-future.
In the meantime, at least Big Blue gets some relief at that position, with key backup Tyler Sash now eligible to return after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. New York would obviously prefer to have both Phillips and Sash with Will Hill and Antrel Rolle, but the jury's still out on that.
Here's what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division:
New York Giants
Newsday's Tom Rock writes that Ramses Barden went from hero to goat in one week.
Gary Myers of the New York Daily News thinks the Giants got greedy late against Philadelphia, costing them dearly.
From PhillyMag.com's Tim McManus: Michael Vick says he'll be fine after hurting his knee late against the Giants.
From PFT: Andy Reid regrets icing the kicker. Is it me or does it feel as though Reid has been regretting a lot lately?
Mike Wise of the Washington Post suggests Sunday's victory might have saved Washington's season, and maybe even the Shanahan regime.
From Mark Maske of the Post: Brandon Meriweather will undergo an MRI on his knee after a freak collision with Aldrick Robinson prior to Sunday's game.
