With starters Brandon Marshall and Danny Trevathan dinged up, backup inside linebackers Todd Davis and Steven Johnson have been getting more reps in practice this training camp.

"Our backup group is probably the best that I've ever had. I think a lot of those guys can play and have played well in practice," Phillips said.
That's high praise from Phillips, who has coached in the NFL since 1976.
Well done, Todd and Steven.
