The Cincinnati Bengals may be one of two winless teams, but outside of rumors surrounding the team, there’s been little to no drama that surrounds most winless teams.
Well, their luck has run out.
Offensive tackle Cordy Glenn reportedly wants off the team.
The tackle had high expectations at the commencement of training camp but a preseason concussion has kept him off the field. He’s now been cleared to play, but, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, is at odds over his injury situation.
“Per multiple sources, the Bengals and Glenn have been at odds regarding the concussion, its symptoms, whether he’s able to return, the need for second opinions, and how the player feels. At some point, the situation prompted the Bengals to fine Glenn $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the team.”
So Glenn doesn’t want to play, and we’ve seen it reported from credible sources that he’s been fined and wants released.
Well, what did Zac Taylor have to say about it? Not very much at all.

This seems like a nightmare for the Bengals. Wins could’ve possibly helped cured some of the trauma on this team. However, Glenn believes that the 0-6 Bengals rushed him back to give aid to a lacking offensive line.
The Bengals worst unit is arguably the offensive line. That said, we don’t know if the Bengals truly did rush him back, but it’s clear that Glenn feels his situation has been mishandled and Taylor didn’t give reporters much answers regarding the situation.
It is interesting the level of confidence Taylor has in Jim Turner, the offensive line coach. He repeatedly defended him to the reporters.
This is Glenn’s second season on the team after starting 13 games in 2018. Prior to joining Cincinnati, he spent six seasons in Buffalo. Glenn has yet to be on a ten-win team throughout his eight-year career.
