Leodis McKelvin DB BUF 3 Days

McKelvin had four tackles and two interceptions in Sunday's win over Minnesota. He was on the field for 57 of the team's 64 defensive snaps, The Buffalo News reports.

McKelvin seems to have won a full-time starting job back, while being spelled only occasionally by Corey Graham as opposed to being part of a three-man rotation like he was earlier in the season. McKelvin now has 36 tackles, four picks, and five passes defensed, definitely good IDP numbers from the cornerback spot.

Through five games, McKelvin has put up 28 total tackles, three passes defensed, two interceptions, and one forced fumble.

Those are pretty good IDP numbers for a corner, especially when you consider McKelvin is splitting time for two starting corner spots amid a group of three - himself, Stephon Gilmore, and Corey Graham. McKelvin has played really well the last few weeks and saw the field for 87 percent of the team's defensive snaps in Week 5, so he might be starting to wrest some of that time away from Graham. Through five weeks, McKelvin has seen the field for 75 percent of the defensive snaps. He's also the team's main punt returner, averaging 7.6 yards on eight returns.

McKelvin did not get the start Sunday, and while he was rotated into the cornerback rotation, he only saw the field for a modest 42 percent of the defensive snaps, according to Joe Buscaglia of wgr550.com. McKelvin did have an interception and pass defensed to go with his three tackles.

The Bills have become enamored with veteran Corey Graham's play, and they let Graham play more than both Stephon Gilmore and McKelvin in this one. The team has good cornerback depth all around - Nickell Robey saw 86 percent of the defensive snaps as the Dolphins got behind and had to spread it out all afternoon - so McKelvin will continue to play a key role, but if he's not dominating the snaps it's going to limit his IDP usefulness. To illustrate, McKelvin had 13 tackles in Week 1 - a game where Gilmore was scratched with a groin injury - but had just the three this week when everyone was healthy.

McKelvin totaled 13 tackles and forced a fumble in Sunday's win over the Bears.

McKelvin picks up a decent number of tackles for a cornerback, totaling 72 in 15 games last season. He appears to be pretty much recovered from offseason hip surgery, as the team did a smart job in ramping him up for the regular season. He'll see another offense that likes to throw the ball this week when the Bills take on the Dolphins.

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.

McKelvin will miss Friday's preseason opener against the Panthers, Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 reports.

McKelvin is still recovering from offseason hip surgery, and will skip the first preseason game as a result. It's unclear how long the team plans to sit McKelvin, but the injury shouldn't prevent him from playing at the start of the regular season.
