Buffalo Bills left tackle Cordy Glenn might need ankle surgery

New, comments

Oh boy.

Left tackle Cordy Glenn, a mainstay on the offensive line for the Buffalo Bills, might require surgery to repair his ailing ankle. He has missed two practices after practicing fully during the first week of camp.

Glenn asked for a second opinion on his ankle from specialist Robert Anderson after experiencing discomfort this week. He is listed as day-to-day going forward, but head coach Sean McDermott said Friday night that the team “wasn’t ruling out” surgery.

In his sixth year with the Bills after being selected out of the University of Georgia, Glenn is weighing his option when it comes to dealing with this latest injury. Losing Glenn would deal a blow to the offensive line, as Glenn has started 72 games during his career in Orchard Park.

Seantrel Henderson would be the natural replacement for Glenn, but he is suspended for the first five games on the 2017 season. Rookie Dion Dawkins has been cross training at both left tackle and right tackle and could be the team’s opening day started on Tyrod Taylor’s blind side.
