Marrone says it “may be a long time” until Cordy Glenn plays

Marrone AP

Bills left tackle Cordy Glenn passed his physical.  But that doesn’t mean he’ll be back in action any time soon.

Coach Doug Marrone, who continues to refuse to specify the reason for Glenn’s absence, told reporters on Saturday that the team will take it slow with the starting left tackle.

Glenn separately told reporters that he has been dealing with a “personal” medical issue.

“We’re working him back in very slowly,” Marrone said.  Team spokesman Scott Berchtold pointed out that Glenn still hasn’t passed the conditioning test.

As a result, seventh-round rookie Seantrel Henderson could end up being the starting left tackle when the regular season begins.

“He could start at left tackle,” Marrone said of Henderson.  “Cordy’s not back yet and that may be a long time. Seantrel can play left tackle in this league.”

Henderson, who slid down the draft board due to off-field issues, could end up being the steal of the draft.  And he could make Glenn obsolete in Buffalo.

    Good, he sucks.

    Yeah, who would want a LT drafted in the 2nd round that gave up only 1.5 sacks his rookie year. He won’t be obsolete in Buffalo. One will start LT, and the other RT. The edges will be protected for a long time.

    Seantrell, a 7th rounder has been completely outplaying Cyrus Kouandjio who was drafted in the 2nd. Reminds me of when John McCargo was drafted in the first and got outplayed by a 5th round pick that year by the name of Kyle Williams.

    Obsolete. Yeah, right Florio. What a ridiculous statement.

    “Glenn obsolete in Buffalo.”

    That deserves an atomic facepalm.

    Marrone’s photo looks like he’s watching Eli’s preseason tape this year.

    Henderson is definitely looking like a steal for the Bills. Glenn played solid and when he’s healthy he will be the starting LT. Henderson could play the right side possibly depending on how he progresses.
    Gotta say I love watching Jets fans make screen names to hate on the Bills who are well on their way to surpassing their team. Have fun watching Geno flounder realnflmaster

    Henderson held his own in his first two NFL starts vs. JPP and Greg Hardy. He potentially gives the Bills bookend T’s for years to come. That does not translate into “obsolete.”

    Henderson has looked great in his place, maybe finally living up to the billing that made him the nation’s top recruit a few years back out of high school.

    That’s terrible.
    Whoever that is…

    The big question is, which Bill will be the ROY? Henderson or Watkins?

  13. iloveagoodnap says: Aug 10, 2014 1:37 AM

    Obsolete ? That’s a stretch if I ever read one. Perhaps (gasp) both could start when Glenn returns?? You know, because there are 2 tackles on an offensive line??

    No, that would make too much sense.

    Florio, instead of making ridiculous comments about Glenn becoming obsolete, why not provide really useful information on which mystery illness Glenn has. Why is there so much secrecy around it? Why hasn’t anyone broken this story?
