While once viewed as one of the league's elite left tackles, Glenn has seen his reputation slip a bit after missing 15 games the past two seasons. He's still only 28 years old and profiles as a massive upgrade for a Cincinnati team that was plagued by atrocious line play last season. Bills head coach Sean McDermott said in February that Glenn should be ready for offseason workouts in April, coming off foot/ankle surgery in December. The trade is excellent news for Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and Joe Mixon, while the Bills appear to be in good hands with Dion Dawkins at left tackle.
Glenn underwent January surgery to repair injuries to his foot and ankle. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like it'll cost him any portion of the Bills' preparations for the 2018 season.
Glenn, who was placed on injured reserve inn December due to continued foot and ankle trouble, recently had a procedure performed by specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Coach Sean McDermott was upbeat about the procedure and says Glenn is on schedule to fully participate during the start of the offseason conditioning program in April. There's been some thought the team might move on from Glenn and his hefty contract given the solid substitute left tackle play of rookie Dion Dawkins, though the flip side of the coin is that the Bills would have quite the impressive offensive line heading into 2018 if Glenn is indeed healthy and they found a way to use both Glenn and Dawkins.
When healthy, Glenn is one of the league's better tackles, but that in itself is the problem, as he has battled with various foot and ankle injuries for much of his tenure with the Bills. He's scheduled to undergo a procedure in the coming days to address the matter, which should put Glenn on track to be ready for the start of the Bills' offseason program. The team will continue using rookie Dion Dawkins as the starting left tackle the rest of the season while the Buffalo front office determines whether it's worthwhile to retain the injury-prone Glenn and his high salary in 2018.
Glenn (foot/ankle) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against Indianapolis.
Glenn was limited in practice throughout the week but he's not yet healthy enough to play. Look for rookie Dion Dawkins to fill in once again while Glenn is sidelined.
