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

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.
