As if the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line wasn't already depleted, their most-talented player left the game in the first quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cordy Glenn, Buffalo’s stalwart left tackle, has been battling a back injury for the better part of the last month. He did not practice this past Wednesday, as has become fairly standard while he has dealt with the injury. He was limited on Thursday and Friday. He left the game Sunday after the first series, a Buffalo three-and-out, and is questionable to return. Cyrus Kouandjio took his place for the second series, which was also pretty bad.
Buffalo has already allowed quarterback Tyrod Taylor to be sacked multiple times today, and losing Glenn certainly will not improve the pass protection. Buffalo’s number one-ranked rushing offense, already struggling for traction (both literally and figuratively on a snow-covered field) against the Steelers’ run defense, will now need to find a way to open up lanes for the runners without their starting left tackle.
We will provide updates on Glenn’s status once the Bills release more information.
