Phillips, who is serving his first year as the Texans defensive coordinator, is expected to return this season.
Under Phillips the Texans defense has allowed the fewest amount of yards per game in the NFL this season. The club has also allowed the fourth fewest points against in the league. Despite the team's offensive injuries, the Texans have posted a 10-3 record, which ranks them atop the AFC South.
