    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Important role following injury return

    McKelvin, who missed the first seven games of the season as he recovered from a broken ankle the previous season, ended up playing in nine games for the Bills in 2015. He logged 32 tackles and two interceptions. McKelvin didn't seem to miss a beat when he returned. Even though rookie Ronald Darby had taken over the No. 2 cornerback spot across from Stephon Gilmore by then - quite capably, mind you - McKelvin was an important midseason addition given that he was able to serve as a safety given all kinds of injuries to that group. McKelvin also started at cornerback once Gilmore was lost for the final four weeks with a shoulder injury. With Gilmore and Darby back for another season, McKelvin - assuming the Bills keep him and his high salary around - may have to serve as the versatile backup in 2016.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Should see starter's minutes

    McKelvin's teammate Stephon Gilmore has been placed on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury. That means McKelvin, who saw action on all 77 of the team's defensive snaps Sunday at Philadelphia, should finish the season as the starting cornerback opposite Ronald Darby. McKelvin put up five tackles and had his first interception of the season in the loss, and should be fairly productive the rest of the way now that he's healthy and has resumed a starting role.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: More PT in store?

    With McKelvin's teammate Stephone Gilmore being ruled out of Sunday's game due to a shoulder injury, McKelvin is expected to take his place as the starting cornerback. McKelvin, a cornerback his entire career, has been getting time at safety every since he returned from injury in Week 9. While he sees the field often, he also has shared the free safety spot with Baccari Rambo and hasn't seen more than 47 defensive snaps yet. That number should go up this week, while the Eagles may even look his way with some regularity - not because he can't handle the spot but because the starter across from him, Ronald Darby, is having a fantastic rookie season.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Removed from injury report

    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.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Misses Thursday's practice

    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.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Looks good at safety

    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.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Returns to active roster

    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.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Will play in Week 9

    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.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Returns to practice Wednesday

    McKelvin (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant, Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reports. McKelvin remains on the Reserve/NFI list, but the fact that he has finally returned to practice after a long recovery from a broken ankle is a good sign. The Bills plan to be smart with his readiness moving forward, but the cornerback could have an immediate impact upon his return, and possibly earn back his starting job right away.

    Bills' Leodis McKelvin: Will travel with team next Sunday

    McKelvin (ankle) will travel with the team to London next week and anticipates practicing soon, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. Ronald Darby has made great strides at the corner opposite Stephon Gilmore, so it remains to be seen if McKelvin will start over him when he returns healthy. With the Bills set to play against the Jaguars in London next Sunday prior to their Week 8 bye, more information regarding either player's status should be available sooner rather than later.
