Bills LT Cordy Glenn (illness) has been cleared for team drills.
Glenn battled an unknown illness most of the summer before returning to one-on-one drills last week. He's questionable for Week 1, but the Bills need to get him back. RT Cyrus Kouandjio has been a disaster. If Glenn can get back into game shape, rookie Seantrel Henderson could shift over the right side. Aug 18 - 6:06 PM

Bills LT Cordy Glenn (illness) took part in one-on-one drills during this week's practices.

Glenn still hasn't been cleared for team drills, but it's a step in the right direction. He won't play in Buffalo's third preseason and is questionable for Week 1. Seantrel Henderson will continue to replace Glenn at left tackle.

Bills LT Cordy Glenn won't practice in team drills for "a long time."

Glenn was cleared to practice Saturday, but will be moved along slowly. He's not expected to play in Buffalo's third preseason game and isn't a lock to be cleared for Week 1. Glenn missed three weeks of training camp with an undisclosed medical condition.

Bills LT Cordy Glenn has been cleared to practice.

Glenn was placed on the Non-Football Illness list with an undisclosed medical condition prior to the start of Bills' camp. He will resume practicing today, but Buffalo plans to bring him along slowly. It is unlikely he plays in the Bills third preseason game August 16, but he could get some work later in the preseason and should be ready for Week 1.
Aug 9 - 1:37 PM

The Buffalo News reports Bills LT Cordy Glenn (illness, NFI) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

However, Glenn "isn't expected back soon." The Bills have released vanishingly-few details about Glenn's condition, but the Buffalo News' team source would be "shocked" if he wasn't ready for Week 1. Seventh-rounder Seantrel Henderson has been running with the first team in Glenn's absence.
Jul 28 - 3:31 PM

Coach Doug Marrone refused to reveal details regarding LT Cordy Glenn's (active/NFI) illness.

"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. I'm not allowed to speak about it, guys. I'm sorry." Marrone doesn't sound overly optimistic about his left tackle. For now, it's a waiting game. Rookie Seantrel Henderson has been taking the first-team reps in Glenn's place.
Jul 21 - 6:40 PM

Bills GM Doug Whaley said he doesn't believe LT Cordy Glenn's (illness, active/NFI list) season is in jeopardy "at this time."

"We hope not," Whaley added. "We're still waiting on some reports, but it looks like it's gonna be one of those day-to-day things and we'll see how it progresses." Glenn was limited in OTAs and missed minicamp due to the illness. WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia suggests Glenn could be dealing with a similar issue to Chris Hairston, who spent all last year on the NFI list. Seventh-round pick Seantrel Henderson will start at left tackle until Glenn returns.
Jul 18 - 7:27 PM

Bills placed LT Cordy Glenn and DT Alan Branch on the active/non-football illness list.

Both players can be activated at any time, and aren't expected to miss much, if any, time at training camp. Glenn graded out as a top-13 tackle at Pro Football Focus last season, excelling both in the run game and as a pass protector. Entering his third season, the Bills expect another step forward. He'll be in line for an extension next spring. Branch is a run-plugging behemoth in the middle.
Jul 16 - 5:06 PM

Bills LT Cordy Glenn saw reps at guard during OTAs.

The Bills are looking at different line combinations with Chris Williams sidelined, giving Glenn and Chris Hairston time at guard. Fifth-round pick Cyril Richardson is also in the mix behind Williams. Glenn has been strictly a left tackle the last two years and is unlikely to move inside even if injuries occurred during the season. It's possible Glenn could eventually be an option at guard if Hairston or talented seventh-round flier Seantrel Henderson can develop into a starter.
Jun 6 - 7:58 PM

Bills LT Cordy Glenn was responsible for only 1.5 sacks in 2013.

Glenn made major improvements in pass protection in his second season, grading out as the No. 11 left tackle by Pro Football Focus. He was also among the most durable players in the league, starting all 16 games and leading the NFL with 1,180 snaps. The Bills are expected to seek upgrades over LG Doug Legursky and RT Erik Pears this offseason, but have building blocks in Glenn and C Eric Wood for their offensive line. RG Kraig Urbik is signed for $2.28 million in 2014 and will return as a starter.
Jan 18 - 7:20 PM

Coach Doug Marrone praised LT Cordy Glenn, saying he's having a "pretty good year."

The last blurb we had on Glenn was one from August talking about how he was working at left guard. Glenn has held down the fort at left tackle, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 15 overall tackle through ten weeks. He's only given up one sack and has played the most snaps in the league at 748.

Bills LT Cordy Glenn kicked inside and worked with the first-team offense at left guard in Wednesday's training camp practice.

Second-team LT Thomas Welch bumped up to the first team. Unimpressed with Colin Brown and Doug Legursky at left guard, the Bills are seeking a workable left-side combination. Glenn was viewed by many as a guard before the 2012 draft. Welch, a practice squad talent, isn't a realistic option to man left tackle.

Bills LT Cordy Glenn (ankle) is expected to return to the starting lineup versus the Texans on Sunday.

Glenn has been sidelined for nearly a month. While the Bills regain their left tackle, RT Erik Pears was sent to see a specialist due to complications from his offseason hip procedure. Swing tackle Chris Hairston could end up blocking MVP candidate J.J. Watt on Sunday.
Fri, Nov 2, 2012 09:54:00 AM

The Bills are targeting Week 9 for LT Cordy Glenn and RG Kraig Urbik's returns from ankle injuries.

"To be honest with you, I think they’ll both be ready for Houston," coach Chan Gailey said Friday. Glenn and Urbik will both miss Sunday's game against the Titans, and Buffalo has a Week 8 bye. The Bills' passing game has fallen flat on its face without its two starting offensive linemen the past two weeks.
Fri, Oct 19, 2012 03:21:00 PM

Bills LT Cordy Glenn (ankle) missed practice again on Friday.

Glenn hasn't practiced at all this week, so his chances of playing on Sunday are slim-to-none. Chris Hairston would step into the starting lineup on Ryan Fitzpatrick's blind side. RG Kraig Urbik (ankle) and reserve interior lineman Chad Rinehart (calf) also haven't practiced this week. It's a matchup upgrade for the Arizona D/ST.
