The Crows named Phillips in their side for Saturday’s Norwood Oval match against the Bulldogs.
But Adelaide later said on their website the league best and fairest winner would be assessed further and given every chance to play.
Phillips has not played in the Crows’ first two matches because of a quad injury.
Adelaide are 0-2 and equal-bottom in their premiership defence, while the Bulldogs are among three unbeaten teams.
Carlton forward Tayla Harris is in their side for Saturday night’s match against her old side Brisbane at Ikon Park.
Harris suffered a shoulder injury last week in the win over GWS.
Collingwood have named marquee player Mo Hope in their squad for Sunday’s match against the Giants at Olympic Park Oval.
The Magpies sensationally dropped Hope last week after she only managed six possessions in round one.
