An Improved McKelvin

  • Text size: + -

Sunday's Bills game will not be seen on local television, as Thursday the game was officially blacked out.

Despite a number of moving parts in the Bills secondary this season, one of the more consistent efforts has been from Leodis McKelvin. The cornerback has shown improvement in coverage under a new coaching staff, even if he doesn't have an interception yet to show for it.

"Everything's starting to gel right now, me being able to stay on my game and make plays," McKelvin said. "Getting us off the field on third downs has been very critical for me. Just me being able to step up - with these guys being younger than me, they're looking at me as a role model so I gotta step my game up. I told myself, I would not go though it like I went through it my first five years."

"I think what you’ve seen from Leodis is the ability to understand the process during the week," head coach Doug Marrone said. "He’s worked extremely hard and I’ve said he’s kind of been under the radar a little bit and has put together a string of very good football games."

Safety Aaron Williams missed his second straight day of practice with injured ribs - he's still 50-50 for Sunday. Kyle Williams (full) and Fred Jackson (limited) both returned to practice Thursday. EJ Manuel (knee) did not participate. Arthur Moats joined Stevie Johnson in being excused for personal reasons.
