Cordy Glenn’s season is over.  

The Buffalo Bills placed the left tackle on injured reserve Friday, head coach Sean McDermott announced. Glenn has started only five of the team’s 13 games as he’s dealt with a foot injury all season.

McDermott said Glenn will have a procedure done by noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson so that he will be ready to go for the team’s 2018 offseason program.

“He couldn’t get back to total health this year overall,” McDermott told reporters prior to Friday’s practice. “We just felt like at this time it was right to move forward getting him totally healthy and ready to go for that offseason program.”

The move to IR leaves the Bills with an open active roster spot. McDermott said general manager Brandon Beane and his staff are sorting through options as the team prepares to take on the Miami Dolphins Sunday in Orchard Park.

Rookie Dion Dawkins has started the other eight games at left tackle in place of Glenn.

Fellow offensive lineman John Miller was the only player declared out for the game by McDermott as of Friday morning. Miller practiced in full on Wednesday, but had a setback and has missed the past two days of workouts.
