McKelvin (illness) practiced Saturday and was removed from the Bills' injury report. This comes as no surprise, as McKelvin was just dealing with a minor illness during the week. He will add depth to the Bills' secondary Monday night against the Patriots.
McKelvin missed Thursday's practice due to an illness. We assume McKelvin will be fine for Monday's game in New England, and the extra day off certainly can't hurt. McKelvin is getting the most play at free safety since returning from an ankle injury in Week 9, yet he's not being used as a clear-cut starter either. McKelvin, who's carved out a decent career in Buffalo, is often remembered for blowing a potential major upset in New England several years ago when he made an ill-advised attempt to return a kick when the game was sealed, so perhaps he'll be able to do something this coming Monday to further erase that memory.
McKelvin (ankle), who was activated from the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, played in 68 percent of the defensive snaps during Sunday's win over Miami. Coach Rex Ryan loved the work that McKelvin - normally a corner - put forth at safety, and he saw more playing time than any other safety besides starting strong safety Corey Graham. McKelvin had six tackles and one passed defensed, while there's a chance he could take over as the starting free safety until Aaron Williams potentially returns in December.
The Bills activated McKelvin (ankle) from the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Buffalo reports. McKelvin has finally recovered from the broken ankle he suffered last season, and will return to action this week. He will not jump into the starting lineup, but will improve the Bills' depth in the defensive backfield and figures to be used in formations with extra defensive backs.
McKelvin (ankle) will return to the Bills' active roster this week, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reports. McKelvin suffered a fractured ankle in Week 11 of last season, and despite also sustaining a setback in his recovery, the cornerback is slated to finally return to action this Sunday against the Dolphins. With Stephon Gilmore and Ronald Darby entrenched as the Bills' starting cornerbacks at the moment, McKelvin is likely to be eased back into the lineup in the coming weeks, but having him available is certainly a big plus for Buffalo's defense.
