The Buffalo Bills have placed corner back Leodis McKelvin on the reserve/NFI list. With this new designation, he no longer counts as a roster spot.

He was previously on the active/PUP list. McKelvin will not be able to return to the team until Oct. 13 at the earliest.

“That’s disappointing,” head coach Rex Ryan said. “There’s no question that’s disappointing. He’s a proven player. He’s an outstanding returner and an outstanding corner. I love his passion that he plays with, but he’ll definitely miss that.”

He had a set back during his rehabilitation from ankle surgery, which he had broken in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins last season. He spent much of training camp in a cast.

However, he’s been out of the camp for two weeks. He was recently on a stationary bike — without his boot — and it’s clear he’s not going to be ready to go for the regular season opener.

With his designation, he won’t be able to practice until Week 6, which would give him enough time to heal. Also, they don’t have to add him to the roster right away.

He could practice with the team for 21 days before they make a decision. It would be to add him to the active roster, or possibly sending him to season-ending injured reserve.
