Doug Marrone “not allowed to speak” about Cordy Glenn’s illness

The Bills opened up camp without left tackle Cordy Glenn, who was placed on the Non-Football Illness list last week and is barred from practicing until the designation is removed.

Coach Doug Marrone didn’t offer much of an idea about when that might happen. Glenn missed a few spring practices because of illness and Marrone said Monday that he’s “not allowed to speak” about what’s bothering Glenn or when the tackle might be able to return to the lineup.

“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, via WGR 550. “I’m just waiting for the doctors, and I can’t speak about the condition because it’s something that happened outside of football.”

Center Eric Wood said that Glenn’s absence was “bad luck” and that, “as far as I know,” it won’t keep Glenn from returning to the lineup.

For now, though, seventh-round pick Seantrel Henderson is taking left tackle reps with the first-team offense and the Bills are without a key starter on their offensive line.

    How is it that Buffalo has an injury report this lengthy going into training camp?

    The silver lining is that Seantrel Henderson gets reps with the starters. Let’s see how fast he catches on…..

    Man… the hits just keep coming for the Bills, don’t they? Glenn was/is their best young O-Lineman. I hope it’s not anything life-threatening.

    As for Seantrel Henderson, you might want to ask Bears fans how starting a 7th round draft pick at LT works out. It’s not good.

    He’s actually been diagnosed with “Merriman’s Syndrome” or “The Bills Flu”.

    It’s described as an inexplicable illness or injury which onsets soon after signing a contract with the Buffalo Bills. It’s highly contagious, but also localized only to the greater Buffalo area.

    Buffalo team physicians are baffled by this debilitating illness, but they have discovered a direct correlation between how much money is guaranteed in the contact and the likelihood one will be infected.

    It probably is different under the collective bargaining agreement, however, due to HIPAA regulations, an employer cannot discuss any of their employee’s medical conditions – whether it be public or private. Marrone clearly stated that this occurred outside of Football – ie, outside of the CBA. You fail to mention this in your reporting here, which in turn promotes added speculation that this situation is probably more serious than we can imagine.

    Apples and oranges.

    Seantrel Henderson was by all scouts- all- considered to be a first round, second round at worst talent. He’s just a pothead. The Bills picking him in the second round was virtually no risk with the potential for a very high payoff.

    He has a kidney problem. Maybe just an infection. Get well and GOD bless!

    The Bills are the most injured team in the league the last 5 years.

    I think over in WNY staph infection might not even be severe enough for “bad luck” Time will tell, though.
