Two months since he suffered a concussion in Week 2 of the preseason, Cordy Glenn has been cleared to practice, as announced by head coach Zac Taylor during today’s press conference.
For the last few weeks, Glenn had been slowly working back to the practice field but was never cleared for full contact. At a certain point, it seemed like he could be destined for the Reserved/Injured list due to how long the recovery time was getting. Sure enough, the team placed defensive end Kerry Wynn on I.R. after he missed four weeks with his own concussion. But their patience has been rewarded and Glenn will be getting back to work for real.
Since Glenn’s injury, the Bengals have used Andre Smith and John Jerry at left tackle, neither of whom are natural players at the position. It’s unclear if Glenn will make his debut this week, but this is the first step towards making that happen.
For how awful the Bengals’ offensive line was without him, he’ll surely be playing if he’s able to do so.
