OT Glenn grateful to overcome obstacles

It was an unusual situation that Bills offensive tackle Cordy Glenn was in a couple of summers ago. Heading into the 2014 season it was made known that Glenn had an undisclosed medical condition and would miss an undetermined amount of time in training camp and the preseason. With those trials now in the rearview mirror and with a long term contract extension in hand, Glenn is grateful he’s still playing the game he loves.

“Yeah, I mean there was a lot of tough obstacles of course, you know what I’m saying,” said Glenn. “Having the kidney removed right before camp and really not having a chance to get in shape. I mean that was challenging, but the big thing for me is always trying to move forward and not trying to stay in the past.”

With no time to get in shape for the 2014 season because the procedure demanded rest and recovery, Glenn had what many felt was a down season that year. Now that the true reason for his performance that year, which was not up to typical Cordy Glenn standards, is out there, it explains a lot more about Glenn and his commitment to the team. Knowing he likely wouldn’t be at his best he still suited up for the good of the team.
