The Buffalo Bills finally got some good news on the injury front when left tackle Cordy Glenn returned to the team’s training camp. Many have already surmised that we could see Glenn back on the field before the end of the preseason.
Bills head coach Doug Marrone was quick to dispel that talk, assuring everyone it would be a while before Cordy Glenn returns even to team practice, let alone game action.
“We’re going to take it very, very slowly. I mean, I’m talking about slow to see how he comes back, does on the first couple of days,” Marrone told Joe Buscaglia at WGR 550. “We’ll just do a little bit on the side, a little bit individual. You won’t see him participating in any team, not for a while. Then we’ll see how he responds because I really don’t know.”
That puts a damper on the hopes of Bills fans, but at least this undisclosed illness isn’t something that will keep Glenn out for the season. Whatever is slowing Glenn down, it’s clearly something serious and the coaching staff would prefer to keep a lid on it.
Rookie tackle Seantrel Henderson will continue to play in place of Cordy Glenn while Glenn recovers. Marrone concluded his talk with a vote of confidence for the Miami product. “Seantrel can play left tackle in this league.” It appears he’ll have plenty of time to do just that while the team’s top tackle works his way back into the lineup.
