McKelvin good to go for Bills, Dareus on non-football injury list

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.

  1. Suspension on the way. This, and the loss of Alonso does not bode well for the beginning of the season.

  2. If it was worth trading the 1st Rounder next year to make a run this year, then why not trade the 2nd Rounder for an even better shot? And why are they holding onto the 3-7th Round picks, do they need those for the future at the expense of now? Yet they had to have the value of that 1st Rounder accelerated for now?

    I don’t get it.

  3. Hopefully, they are just giving him time to get his personal life together. This way they don’t have to take money from him by fining him.

  4. @buffaloisadumpster’re such a sad soul you went out of your way to make your screen name a shot at Buffalo and their fans. You, my friend, are as sad as it gets on the internet..congrats you’ve done it!

  5. So apparently, stupidity and a complete lack of common sense count as non-football injuries.

    Dareus on this list and Mount Cody on the PUP in Baltimore… not a good preseason so far for former Bama DTs.

  6. That picture must be of Dareus saying, “How can I be such a freaking EEE-DIOT?!”

  7. As a Dolphins fan, I really feel for Buffalo. That defense was very good. With Kiko, Byrd and Darius not there it could be rough.
