Bills' Marrone mum on Glenn's illness
Since it was announced on the Wednesday heading into training camp, not much has been learned about Buffalo Bills left tackle Cordy Glenn and why he was listed on the Active/Non-Football Illness list. The starting player, and perhaps the best offensive lineman on the Bills' roster, is set to miss practices until cleared.
At this point, there is no end in sight for the illness that has claimed the first two practices for Glenn. Head coach Doug Marrone, despite repeated attempts from the media on Monday, couldn't give any other details regarding Glenn's situation.
"I don't know that. It's a medical condition. I'm preparing to go on as if he's not playing, which he's not," Marrone said. "I'm just waiting for the doctors, and I can't speak about the condition because it's something that happened outside of football."
Even trying to get a gauge on the situation, Marrone was asked if he is fearing the worst in regards to his starting left tackle.
"I'm not allowed to speak about it guys. I'm sorry about that."
One of Glenn's teammates along the offensive line is center Eric Wood, and he expressed optimism about the left tackle's outlook. It's really been the only real claim anyone has made about Glenn to this point.
"And then with Cordy, that was kind of bad luck," Wood told WGR Sports Radio 550 Monday morning. "As far as I know, he had an illness and he’ll be back."
Without their normal starter on the field, seventh-round pick and rookie Seantrel Henderson has been getting the first-team repetitions at left tackle. Glenn may return whenever medically cleared by the doctors on the Bills' staff, though Marrone could not provide any timetable for any testing in the future.
