Bills' Glenn to be brought back "very, very slowly"

One day removed from their second preseason game of 2014, the Buffalo Bills were greeted by positive news regarding one of their best offensive linemen. Starting left tackle Cordy Glenn, who had missed all of training camp due to an undisclosed illness, passed his physical and returned back to the active roster on Saturday.

While some are jumping through hoops and ready to put Glenn back in the lineup immediately, that isn’t necessarily the same approach as head coach Doug Marrone and the Bills. In fact, they’re using the exact opposite in bringing the left tackle back.

“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 stressed. “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.”

Glenn had been on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list until the passed physical on Saturday, and has only been able to do work on the side of practices with trainers. With the incumbent left tackle back — and not necessarily a lock to get playing time in the immediate future — some are wondering if seventh-round rookie Seantrel Henderson could move to the right side of the line.

Marrone was quick to thwart the notion.

“Cordy's not back yet,” he quickly replied to the idea of moving the rookie. “That's a long time, but, Seantrel can play left tackle in this league.”

In fact, the Bills have not yet come to a conclusion on who will be a part of the five-man offensive line to start the season. To this point the only real lock is center Eric Wood, and the tackle discussion is right there in the mix when considering all the options.

“We've got Seantrel ready, Chris Hairston has played,” said Marrone speaking about left tackle. “If Cordy comes back and he's at form, then we'll see what's the best combination of five. We're not, both [offensive line coach] Pat [Morris] and I and [offensive coordinator] Nathaniel [Hackett] and I, we haven't solidified that yet.”

Glenn was dressed in his helmet, jersey and shoulder pads along with the rest of his teammates. During his first day back, he participated in the walk-thru and indicidual portions of practice.

Will we ever find out what his non-football injury was? Who cares how he got the injury (might be a personal thing), but shouldn't we at least know what it is...leg, head, foot, lower body, upper body? Kind of strange no one has leaked anything.

He is a very good player, get him in shape and healthy, we could have a very big and nasty line at some point////

Glenn to move inside to LG if Sentrel continues development.

Re: Glenn
It don't really matter. This is the Tim Connolly Bills we got here. Besides, the media here sucks. They're only worried about themselves just to tick off the fans with the stupid stuff carrying on with one thing for months which is Bon Jovi or tanking hockey games.

Re:to lg
I agree with you on your comment. By gleen moving to lg gives the bills to strong bookends. that will be here for a long time and people have been taking notice of our o-line. These young man are huge like hell that what wood wanted from day one anyway. When these rookies and vets finally gell on every snap. it will be a wonderful sight to see. You can already see it in the preseason. When you got players knocking their defense off the line. Boy dosen't it open up big holes. Keep the good work up o-line because all you players are what we be missing for years. lets go ruff buff.

Re: LG
Suuuurrrrreeeee he will. After all, Left Guard is such a critical position that it should be filled by a friggin' STARTING Left Tackle! Hmm, just a thought here skippy but maybe jjjjuuuusssstttt maybe you might want to look over on the Right Tackle position where there is currently NOBODY slated to start. if Sentrel Henderson develops, THAT is where he is going sport. That is why they drafted whatshisname in the second round and took a flyer on Henderson: to fill the Right Tackle position. Everything else is window dressing and smokescreen to get those two the experience they need to cover Left Tackle should Glenn actually get hurt (oops did I say that too loudly) and/or start at Right Tackle.
