Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (concussion) got in a full practice Thursday.

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) is active Week 10 against the Eagles.

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) is questionable for Week 10 against the Falcons.

It's the third game McKelvin will miss due to his hamstring issues. The Eagles' top corner when healthy, McKelvin's absence is an upgrade to DeSean Jackson's matchup. The rest of Philly's inactives are OL Josh Andrews, WR Bryce Treggs, OL Isaac Seumalo, DE Steven Means, OL Dillon Gordon, and CB C.J. Smith.
Oct 16 - 11:31 AM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) said he will be a game-time decision for Week 6 against the Redskins.

McKelvin said he was able to run "pretty good" during Friday's practice, where he split reps with rookie Jalen Mills. McKelvin's hamstring injury is lingering, so we wouldn't be surprised to see the Eagles sit him against Washington.

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Steelers.

Sep 23 - 10:25 AM

Eagles declared CB Leodis McKelvin, TE Zach Ertz, WR Bryce Treggs, C Josh Andrews, OT Dillon Gordon, OT Halapouvaati Vaitai, and OG Isaac Seumalo inactive for Week 2 against the Bears.

McKelvin is the Eagles' de facto No. 1 corner but is out with a strained hamstring. Ron Brooks will start in base sets, but he'll cover the slot in sub-packages with seventh-round rookie Jalen Mills on the outside opposite Nolan Carroll. Veteran block-first TE Brent Celek will start in place of Ertz (ribs).
Sep 19 - 7:01 PM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin exited the Eagles' Week 1 win over the Browns with a hamstring strain.

Coach Doug Pederson said Monday the corner is week-to-week. With McKelvin likely to miss some time, promising rookie Jalen Mills should play a much bigger role moving forward.
Sep 12 - 12:06 PM

The Eagles view Leodis McKelvin as their top cornerback.

McKelvin worked as the Eagles’ No. 1 corner throughout the spring. He’s locked in as one of the outside starters after posting career bests under Jim Schwartz in 2014. Nolan Carroll and Ron Brooks are the favorites to bookend McKelvin.
