Leodis McKelvin DB BUF 1 Day

Coach Doug Marrone says McKelvin (hip/groin) is close to 100 percent and should be a go for this week's opener in Chicago, Joe Buscaglia of WGR Radio reports.

McKelvin, who had offseason hip surgery, was able to play a decent amount in the preseason, and it looks the team's schedule to ramp him up for Week 1 worked out well. He'll likely start at one cornerback spot, while Stephon Gilmore starts across from him and Corey Graham serves as a capable and experienced No. 3 guy.

McKelvin (hip/groin) was able to play in his first preseason game Saturday against Tampa Bay and came through fine, BuffaloBills.com reports. The veteran also practiced Monday.

McKelvin might play a few series in the preseason finale this week against the Lions, and appears set to start at corner to begin the season, opposite Stephon Gilmore.

McKelvin (hip) left Wednesday practice with a groin injury, ESPN.com reports.

McKelvin has missed both of the Bills' preseason games thus far, as he gradually returns from offseason hip surgery. The cornerback competed in both 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills in practice earlier this week, but apparently needed to exit Wednesday's session early with a groin issue. With McKelvin previously slated to see minimal action in Buffalo's remaining two exhibition contests, news of another ailment could limit him further.

McKelvin (hip), who did not play in Saturday's preseason loss at Pittsburgh, was able to participate in both 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills during Monday's practice, BuffaloBills.com reports.

He'll probably play a little over the last two preseason games, and there seems to be little chance that McKelvin would be at risk for Week 1 of the regular season, where he'll start at corner opposite Stephon Gilmore.

McKelvin, coming back from offseason hip surgery, is starting to do some team work and continues to be eased back into action, BuffaloBills.com reports.

The plan is to ramp up McKelvin for the regular season, where he's expected to start across from Stephon Gilmore as the second cornerback. When and if he needs a breather, Corey Graham looks to be the third corner, plus the Bills have a pretty capable group behind the top three.
