Heading into this week's game with the Buccaneers, Bills head coach Doug Marrone praised the performance of Leodis McKelvin saying that the cornerback is playing at a high level and getting better and better.
It's been needed. A lot was expected of Stephon Gilmore in his second year, but a wrist injury in the preseason forced the former first round pick to miss the first five games of the regular season and he has not returned to form, but he is working his way back.
"There's not a player that has worked as hard on this football field as Stephon Gilmore," Marrone said. "He's working extremely hard to get better and to overcome those things. It's not as easy, again, as everyone thinks to come back in there and be able to have the usage of really his hand or wrist or whatever he had, and we have to get him to overcome that. We've spoken to him about it, he’s been very receptive about it, and he's been working extremely hard."
"As you know I went through surgery and I had to work myself back," Gilmore said. "I'm feeling more comfortable. I'm out there just trying to play hard and do whatever I can to help this team."
