Report: Bills tackle Cordy Glenn should be ready for season opener

Monday July 28th, 2014

Buffalo Bills starting left tackle Cordy Glenn has yet to practice in training camp, after being placed on the non-football illness list, but the Bills expect him back for the season opener Sept. 7, according to Tim Graham of The Buffalo News.

The Bills have not disclosed the nature of Glenn's illness, but Graham says a source told him he would be "shocked" if Glenn was not ready for the opener against the Chicago Bears

Glenn was a second round pick out of Georgia in 2012 and started at left tackle right away for Buffalo. 

Seantrel Henderson has taken Glenn's spot on the offensive line while Glenn recovers. The Bills signed Henderson as an undrafted free agent this year. Once a highly-touted prospect, Glenn's stock fell due to character concerns. 

The Bills open the preseason on Sunday in the Hall of Fame Game against the New York Giants
