Cowboys TE John Phillips Will Miss Season With Torn ACL

Tim MacMahon of reports that Dallas Cowboys tight end John Phillips will miss the 2010 season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Phillips underwent an MRI earlier this morning, the results of which have not been disclosed by the team.

The second year tight end from Virginia was pushing Martellus Bennett for the #2 tight end job behind Jason Witten. Phillips caught four passes for 60 yards on SUnday night, and believes he was injured after catching a back-shoulder throw from quarterback Jon Kitna.

"It's disappointing because he was having such a great camp and such a great game," tight ends coach John Garrett said on Sunday night. "But I know one thing: He's got great resolve. He's got great perseverance. If there's anybody going to come back even stronger than he was before, it'll be John Phillips."
