The front lawn of a home belonging to Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin was vandalized following Buffalo’s season-opening loss to the Patriots.
Hamburg, N.Y., police yesterday confirmed the home of a Bills player was vandalized, but declined to release details of their investigation after an obscenity and the score of Monday night’s game - 25-24 - were painted in white on the player’s lawn in suburban Buffalo.
McKelvin fumbled a kickoff return with under two minutes to play, at which time the Bills were leading, 24-19.
Three plays later, Tom Brady hit Benjamin Watson for the go-ahead touchdown as the Patriots overcome an 11-point deficit in the final 2:06.
In other Bills news, starting defensive end Chris Kelsay is expected to miss at least a week with a bruised knee. Kelsay sustained only a deep bruise and no ligament damage against the Patriots.
Kelsay was hurt late in the second quarter when he collided with teammate Ryan Denney.
Bills coach Dick Jauron had already announced linebacker Paul Posluszny is out indefinitely after breaking a bone in his left arm.
