Bills vs. Giants: Terrence McGee Ready To Play

The Buffalo Bills lost starting cornerback Terrence McGee to a hamstring injury on the first defensive play of the team's blowout 41-7 win over Kansas City in Week 1. Since then, McGee has been inactive for three games and an also-ran in another; last week against Philadelphia, McGee was active after practicing all week, but didn't play a single down on defense or special teams.

After a month off, however, it appears that the Bills are finally ready to ease McGee back into the lineup. That according to Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com, who reports that McGee is anticipating being the team's nickel back in Week 6 against the New York Giants.

The Bills have been set at corner with Drayton Florence and Leodis McKelvin taking reps, but as well as Reggie Corner has played in nickel duty since Aaron Williams' injury, McGee is a clear upgrade there when healthy, particularly defending the run. Brown believes McGee may eventually reclaim a starting role; it'll be interesting to see if he can stay healthy long enough in a sub-package role to merit that consideration.
