Zac Taylor on Cordy Glenn: It’s an internal discipline matter

Left tackle Cordy Glenn practiced for the Bengals on Wednesday, but he was not on the field with the team on Thursday.

Glenn’s absence came on the same day that PFT reported that Glenn had an altercation with a member of the team’s coaching staff on Wednesday regarding the team’s handling of the concussion that’s kept him out all season. That altercation ended with Glenn telling Bengals head coach Zac Taylor to cut him.

PFT also learned that the Bengals fined Glenn $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the team at some point this year.

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor wouldn’t confirm the fine or Glenn’s comment when asked about the tackle’s status on Thursday. He did confirm that something’s going on behind the scenes, however.

“That’s an internal discipline matter and quite frankly that is all I have to say about it right now,” Taylor said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer.

It remains to be seen what kind of future Glenn might have with the Bengals, but Taylor said that John Jerry will start at left tackle again this week with Andre Smith still sidelined by the ankle injury that kept him out against the Ravens.

  1. It isn’t hard to believe a team is rushing back a player with a concussion. Or as we should be calling it, “traumatic brain injury”.
    Rub some dirt on it son, we’ll replace you next year. Who cares if it causes permanent loss of cognitive ability. We got a game this week.
    He should sit-out and sue everyone involved.

  2. I saw Glenn play @ UGA and was a gamer. The top people in the medical field can’t deferentiate the differences from one concussion to another with the same type of scans. I don’t think he’s a malingerer, I think he’s probably worried about his future after football

    This guy played like 10 snaps in week 2 of the preseason and has been out ever since and you think the bengals are rushing him back? They have been very patient, especially for a team that didn’t “see” this hot that caused This concussion and and has been reportedly “self-diagnosed” meaning nobody saw it happen. The rumor is he has been but hurt ever since they wanted to move him to guard after they drafted Jonah Williams. After Williams went down plans changed again and he was back at tackle. His mad now because he thought he was going to be left alone to his own devices but this is a business and the bengals have a sizeable investment in him they want him to come in see the doctors and provide daily status on his condition. Why should they take him for his word and let him stay home and collect a check for nothing? It sounds like an awful lot like he wants a free ride. Or possibly he want to annoy ownership and get cut so he can go to a contender and play. Not like that precedent hasn’t been set already.

    I’m sorry but concussion symptoms lasting 3 months? Color me skeptical. Now it’s come down to does this guy want to play or just Milk his injury? Or is there something seriously wrong which in that case he just needs to retire. I’m pretty sure the frustrations Between player and Coach/team hit a boiling point and someone expressed their opinion and he didn’t like it. So kids am awful lot like Glenn is angry that the team is calling his bluff. Someone Probably called him out in that he was exaggerating ir milking the injury. The guy has been a bengals for 18 games and he may have played in 8 of them. If you don’t want to play move on or move out.

  4. So where does this lead to. Does Glenn apologize to his teammates and returns to practice? Or does he play the Ramsey card and take another 3 weeks off forcing the Bengals hand? They could put him on the NFI list. Could trade him, but his value at this point would be nominal. History has proven that Mike Brown doesn’t flinch. Nor does MB react on emotion. Hard to fathom Glenn playing another down for the Bengals. Keep him this year and trade him in the off-season where you’ll have more leverage. Wait…isn’t that what the Bills did?

  5. Mike Brown will not lose a battle of wills. He was willing to let Carson Palmer retire rather than trade him away, only relenting when his friend Hue Jackson needed a QB. There ain’t no way Cordy Glenn is worth enough for Mike Brown to just let him have his way.
