There’s good news and bad news out of Bills camp on a couple of defensive starters.
The good news is that the team announced cornerback Leodis McKelvin has been placed on the active roster. McKelvin had been placed on the physically unable to perform list because he’s recovering from hip surgery, but the Bills had their pre-camp conditioning test today, and McKelvin was apparently in good enough shape to pass the test and therefore start practicing with his teammates.
The bad news is that defensive tackle Marcell Dareus has been placed on the non-football injury list. The Bills did not explain the nature of Dareus’s injury, but it’s another piece of bad news in what has been a bad offseason. Dareus has been dealing with off-field trouble and was sent home from Organized Team Activities last month. Although Dareus has enormous talent, his act appears to be wearing thin in Buffalo.
The Bills also placed guard J.J. Unga on the non-football injury list.
