Bengals LT Cordy Glenn suffers shoulder injury vs. Bills

New, comments

It sounds like Cordy Glenn is ok after his injury scare.

Cordy Glenn fully expects to be ready for Week 1 against the Colts, according to Geoff Hobson of

Left tackle Cordy Glenn (shoulder) left in the third series, but he had a wide smile as he walked to the bus for the trip home.

Asked if he could play in the Sept. 9 opener in Indy, Glenn said, “Absolutely, no doubt about it.”

Crisis averted.

For now, it appears Bengals left tackle Cordy Glenn is “fine” following a shoulder injury suffered against the Bills.

Even if Glenn is healthy, I doubt we’ll see him Thursday against the Colts, if for no other reason than to give Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher as many reps as possible to determine who will be the backup left tackle to open the regular season.

The Bengals are holding their breath after starting left tackle Cordy Glenn was injured against the Buffalo Bills.

Late in the quarter, Glenn exited the game with a shoulder injury and was announced as out for the rest of the contest.

This would be a massive loss for Cincinnati if Glenn is out for extended time, especially since Cedric Ogbuehi was who replaced him.

For what it’s worth, Glenn is still standing along the sideline and moving around fine, so it’s possible he’s fine and the team is just being super precautious with what’s hopefully a minor injury.

Glenn was brought in this offseason via a rare trade made by the Bengals involving some high draft capital. The Bengals and Bills, who ironically are playing today, swapped first-round picks as well as some later picks in the draft in order to get Glenn in Cincinnati.

Glenn was a second-round pick by the Bills in the 2012 draft, and he had been a very capable starting NFL tackle since entering the NFL. 2017 was a down year, mostly due to him dealing with a nagging ankle injury.

After only missing three games in his first four seasons, Glenn has missed 16 starts over the last two seasons. The Bengals are betting that trend doesn’t continue, and it’s a gamble they can’t afford to be wrong with.

When healthy, Glenn is a massive upgrade over the likes of Cedric Ogbuehi and Andre Smith, who manned the blind side last season. Glenn has allowed just four sacks over his last 33 games, while opposing teams have recorded 39 sacks last season alone on Dalton.

Glenn’s presence would give Dalton much needed comfort and help the offense run much more efficiently, so let’s hope this issue is nothing serious.
