Bengals head coach Zac Taylor provided some good and bad news during his press conference from today.
Cordy Glenn will be practicing with the 1s at left tackle starting this afternoon and Taylor expects him to make his 2019 debut this Sunday in their home matchup against the Steelers. Glenn has missed the team’s first 10 games due to a concussion he suffered in the preseason and has been working back into the starting lineup for the past few weeks in practice.
I can’t believe I’m tweeting this, but according to Zac Taylor, Cordy Glenn is going to get work at tackle and there is a lot of hope he will start at LT on Sunday.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) November 20, 2019
This will be the first time all year Glenn will practice with the expectation to play at the end of the week.
A.J. Green, on the other hand, will not practice today and is still considered day-to-day. Taylor did not want to comment on Green’s chances of playing on Sunday, but if he’s out for today, it can be assumed that he won’t suit up this week.
Zac says it will be tough for Green to play Sunday since he’s not practicing Wednesday— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) November 20, 2019
At least the hopeful return of Glenn can give the offensive line a much needed boost. John Jerry had a rough outing last week at left tackle and the last time the Bengals played the Steelers, the offensive line allowed a season-high eight sacks.
