Buffalo's kick-return game: Last week rookie CB Leodis McKelvin was a stud on the kick-return team, notching 137 yards on five attempts. Roscoe Parrish, who shared return duties with McKelvin, is out four to six weeks with a thumb injury, so the Bills will rely on McKelvin again to be a threat on special teams.
