Phillips suffered a setback with his injured MCL against Washington. But with the Giants needing to win their final two games to make the playoffs, he says he will play against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
"I'm 100 percent confident that I will be on the field this week," Phillips said on ESPN New York 98.7 on Tuesday. "Not sure which role (the coaches) will allow me to play."
It is possible Phillips would be the third safety, with Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown continuing to start.
Phillips missed six games earlier this season with an MCL injury. He returned to play against Green Bay and the Giants had great success with their three-safety look as they routed the Packers, 38-10. But Phillips did not look healthy against the Redskins the following week and played limited snaps before sitting out the last two games.
Will Hill has been the team's third safety in his absence.
