Buffalo Bills left tackle Cordy Glenn did not practice with the team on Thursday because of an illness, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Time will tell if Glenn can recovery from whatever ails him in time for Sunday's season finale against the New York Jets.
Second-year swing tackle Cyrus Kouandjio ran with the first-team offense at left tackle in Glenn's place on Thursday.
Glenn is scheduled for free agency this offseason, making this Jets game the last of his rookie contract with the Bills. General manager Doug Whaley has stated that re-signing Glenn (as well as left guard Richie Incognito) is a high priority for the team this offseason. The 26-year-old left tackle has been, arguably, the best player on a Bills offensive line that has paved the way for the NFL's most productive rushing offense this season; the Bills average 154.6 rushing yards per game, 10 yards more per game, on average, than the No. 2 Carolina Panthers.
The Bills will release their Week 17 injury report once practice has concluded on Friday.
