Eagles released CB Leodis McKelvin.
This was an easy call for EVP Howie Roseman. McKelvin was brought in last offseason to help with the transition to DC Jim Schwartz's defense. He was one of the Eagles' better corners, but the position group as a whole was one of the worst in the league. McKelvin, the former No. 11 overall pick of the Bills, will turn 32 this season and doesn't have much left to offer. Feb 8 - 3:09 PM

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski fully expects the Eagles to release CB Leodis McKelvin.

McKelvin signed a two-year pact last offseason as a familiar face for incoming DC Jim Schwartz. He ended up appearing in 13 games but battled hamstring and concussion issues while grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 71 cover corner out of 120 qualifiers. McKelvin's release would save $3.2 million.
Jan 25 - 10:56 AM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (concussion) will play Monday night against the Packers.

It is not a surprise after he returned to a full practice Thursday. He should get the start opposite Nolan Carroll.
Sat, Nov 26, 2016 11:22:00 AM

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

McKelvin appears to be moving quickly through the protocol after suffering a concussion last week against the Seahawks. With the Eagles playing on Monday night, it would be a surprise if McKelvin is not cleared in time.
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 12:36:00 PM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin is in the concussion protocol.

McKelvin exited Sunday's game against the Seahawks in the fourth quarter. The corner has an extra day to pass through the protocol with the Eagles playing on Monday night, but he is at best questionable.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 01:10:00 PM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin exited Week 11 against the Seahawks with a possible concussion.

McKelvin exited in the fourth quarter to be evaluated. Hampered by injuries all season, McKelvin might be headed for another stint on the sidelines.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 07:00:00 PM

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

McKelvin is not a top-tier corner, but he is easily the best option on the Eagles' roster. With Julio Jones in town, the defense needed him active to have any chance. Julio is still an elite WR1.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 11:35:00 AM

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

McKelvin has been battling hamstring issues seemingly all season. He was downgraded to limited in practice late in the week and seems to be on the wrong side of the questionable tag heading into a date with Julio Jones.
Fri, Nov 11, 2016 11:23:00 AM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) is expected to play Week 7.

McKelvin has missed two of the last three games with a hamstring issue. Easily the best corner on the roster, his return will be a boost for a suddenly struggling defense.
Mon, Oct 17, 2016 01:06:00 PM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) is inactive for Week 6.

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.
Sun, Oct 16, 2016 11:31:00 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.
Fri, Oct 14, 2016 01:14:00 PM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.

McKelvin just returned from a hamstring injury last week, and now it looks like he will be sitting again. Easily the best corner on the roster, McKelvin will be a big miss for the defense.
Thu, Oct 13, 2016 12:03:00 PM

Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) practiced on Monday.

McKelvin said it "looks like" he will play this week. He has been sidelined since injuring his hamstring in Week 1. The best corner on the roster, McKelvin's return will be a boost for a defense which is already playing lights out.
Mon, Oct 3, 2016 12:41:00 PM

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

The Eagles will use a cornerback trio of Nolan Carroll, Jalen Mills, and Ron Brooks for a second-straight week. Alshon Jeffery got loose for a deep ball last Monday night, and Antonio Brown is on tap for Sunday.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 10:25:00 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).
