Leodis McKelvin is going to be handling the majority of the work on both punt and kick returns on Sunday with C.J. Spiller out with a hamstring injury and Roscoe Parrish out for the season. But don’t think it’s going to pull him off the field on the defensive side of the ball.
While head coach Chan Gailey said they will “massage” that starting left cornerback situation this week based on workload knowing Terrence McGee is coming back from the nerve problem in his leg, McKelvin is expected to still see at least half the work, if not more at the left corner spot. That will have him matched up on Terrell Owens, while also handling special teams duties. But McKelvin doesn’t mind the extra work.
“No, I’ve been doing it all my life. I imagine you could say I am getting older, jumping from defense to special teams or back to defense. But we’ve got depth at corner and whenever I do need a breather we’ll be able to rotate and do things like that.”
McKelvin apparently thinks 25 is old. It’s not Leodis, trust me.
