PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) – Rex Ryan revealed that Leodis McKelvin had a setback with his ankle, which clears the way for more practice reps for Ronald Darby with the starters.

Darby, the team’s second round draft pick, has been impressive through the first two days of camp.

“It’s a lot tougher because you know in college some weeks you probably going up against, no disrespect, a rinky dink receiver – someone you might not respect. In the NFL, everyone’s good. Like that’s their college’s best receivers, you gotta come a lot more tuned in and locked in,” said Darby.

Ryan already feels comfortable with the rookie out there.

“It is not the first time we ever started a rookie. So we feel like this guy can play. Hopefully Leodis comes back soon. But obviously if he doesn’t the next man steps up but we feel good about Darby,” said Ryan.
