ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos held pass rusher Shaun Phillips out of practice with back spasms Saturday, listing him as questionable for Monday night's game against Oakland.
Phillips, a 10th-year veteran, leads the team with 2 1/2 sacks this season and has seen an increased role in the absence of linebacker Von Miller, who is serving a six-game suspension.
Phillips called his absence, ``just precautionary.'' He says ``It's the team looking out for the players. Getting old, you know?''
Already depleted at linebacker, the Broncos could try Adrian Robinson in a pass-rushing role. Earlier this month, the Broncos claimed Robinson off waivers to add depth to a depleted linebacker corps. Robinson played for Pittsburgh last season, but did not record a tackle on special teams or defense.
