Bengals LT Cordy Glenn has been cleared from concussion protocol
Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Cordy Glenn has been cleared from concussion protocol and is now able to practice, according to Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic. His status for the Bengals’ game against the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend remains in question.
Glenn has not played at all this season after suffering a concussion during the preseason.
The 30-year-old, who played his collegiate football at the University of Georgia, was originally selected by the Buffalo Bills in the second round (41st pick overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.
He immediately started at left tackle for the Bills during his rookie campaign and spent the first six years of his career in Buffalo, playing in every game from 2013 through 2015 before injuries started to take their toll in 2016.
During Glenn’s final two seasons with the Bills, he played in just 16 games total, and in March 2018, Buffalo traded Glenn to Cincinnati.
Glenn appeared in 13 contests in his first year with the Bengals last season.
Even when Glenn does eventually return, he could be a player who ends up getting traded by the Week 8 deadline.
Glenn has two years remaining on his current deal and is making $7.25 million this season and $7.5 million next year. With Cincinnati having gone 0-6 thus far, good for the worst record in the NFL, there seems to be a chance the Bengals could clean house within the next couple of weeks.
Cincinnati is well on its way to missing the playoffs for the fourth straight year and has not won a playoff game since the 1990-91 campaign.
