The starting left tackle will miss his fourth game of the season and third in a row. Rookie Dion Dawkins has been performing well in his place, but the Bills simply run the ball better with Glenn in there -- in the six games Glenn has played, the Bills have averaged 123 yards on the ground, compared to 87 yards rushing in the three he's missed.
Glenn (foot, ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports,
Glenn has been having issues all season and this will be his third missed game. He's one of the league's better left tackles, so this will represent at least a slight downgrade for LeSean McCoy, since the run game has functioned much more effectively with Glenn in the lineup. Rookie Dion Dawkins will start in Glenn's place.
Glenn (foot/ankle) won't practice Wednesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Glenn has dealt with foot and ankle issues for months and has missed two full games and plenty of other plays this season because of the injuries. It would be a hit to the Buffalo offense if the starting left tackle can't play Sunday against the Saints. Head coach Sean McDermott said he would trust the training staff's recommendation on Glenn.
Glenn didn't practice Monday due to foot and ankle soreness, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Glenn has been nursing the two injuries throughout the season, but the Bills haven't expressed much concern yet that he'll miss Sunday's game against the Saints. The team will presumably track the left tackle's progress throughout the week of practice before issuing an update on his status heading into the Week 10 matchup.
Glenn (foot/ankle) practiced fully for the third straight day Friday and does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Glenn played last game as well, but the starting left tackle was significantly limited to a few special teams plays in the loss to the Bengals. It seems like the plan is to work Glenn into the offensive unit, though if he can only carry a part-time workload -- he's been bothered by foot and ankle issues for quite some time -- then rookie Dion Dawkins will continue seeing time at the crucial left tackle spot.
