McKelvin was released by the Eagles on Wednesday. McKelvin signed a two-year, $6 million contract with Philadelphia last offseason. In 13 games with the Eagles in 2016, he recorded 43 tackles and two interceptions, including one pick six. He saw the field on 57.5 percent of the team's defensive snaps but routinely struggled in man-to-man coverage. He'll be 32 come the start of the 2017 regular season.
McKelvin tallied nine tackles Sunday against the Bengals. McKelvin tied for the team lead in tackles Sunday, but also helped allow Bengals QB Andy Dalton to rack up over 300 yards passing to go along with a pair of scores. He'll look to get back on track next week against Washington.
McKelvin (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. McKelvin exited Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a head injury and entered concussion protocol Monday. He then missed practice Wednesday. However, his uninhibited outing on Thursday suggests he'll be full-tilt come Monday night's matchup with the Packers.
McKelvin (concussion) will not participate in practice Monday. Luckily for McKelvin, the Eagles have an extra day to recover and prepare for their Week 12 matchup, which is set for Monday against the Packers. Jalen Mills figures to see reps with the first team in practice while McKelvin remains under the league's concussion protocol.
McKelvin is in the league's concussion protocol. McKelvin was forced to leave Week 11's contest in the fourth quarter and will now have to be cleared before returning to game action. Look for Jalen Mills to see a starter's share of work as long as McKelvin remains out.
