The Buffalo Bills activated cornerback Leodis McKelvin to the 53-man roster and announced that wide receiver Percy Harvin has been placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

An eight-year NFL veteran and former first-round draft pick, McKelvin has started 55 career games for the Bills, racking up 11 interceptions and 273 tackles.

He started the 2015 season on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list and returned to practice Oct. 21.

Prior to suffering a season-ending injury in Week 11 last year, McKelvin led all Bills defensive backs with four interceptions.

Harvin was held out of Buffalo's past two games, and Saturday's roster move may be a precursor to his departure from the organization. FOX Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo reported last month that Harvin has told people recently he's considering retirement.

Harvin had 19 catches for 218 yards and a touchdown in his first season with the Bills.
