The wait for starting left tackle Cordy Glenn is over. Just a few hours ahead of the team's practice on Saturday night the Buffalo Bills announced that Glenn has passed his physical and will be placed on the active roster.
To start training camp the left tackle could not participate in practices because of an undisclosed illness, and as a result was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list. Glenn first started missing time during the team's mandatory minicamp in June, but it is not clear if his time missed during that week was directly linked to the ailment that kept him out of practice.
In his stead the Bills employed seventh-round rookie Seantrel Henderson as the left tackle with the first unit, allowing the rookie to show that he can keep up at the position. With Glenn now cleared and on the way back to full playing time Henderson's role will likely shift to either backup left tackle, or he could possibly get a look at another position along the offensive line.
The Bills get back to work on the practice field at 6:00 pm at St. John Fisher College. The practice is open to the general public, but a ticket is necessary for admission.
