BDC 8/21: Glenn Named Starting LT

Posted by Bills Daily Charge on August 21, 2012 – 10:12 am


DAILY REPORT
–Bills Head Coach Chan Gailey announced yesterday that rookie T Cordy Glenn will be the team’s starting left tackle. 

–The team held a private practice yesterday in front of season ticket holders, sponsors and guests yesterday with players signing autographs along the ring wall for fans. An estimated 3,000 people were in attendance.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills head coach Chan Gailey
On what LT Cordy Glenn has shown in the last couple of weeks:
“Cordy has great ability. Ability is not the issue, it is just playing time. He needs as much playing time as he can get. I think if he gets playing time he has a chance to be a really good football player. He has not done great against the two good pass rushers he has faced, but he has done OK. I think we see a great upside with him.”

PHOTOS OF THE DAY

Fans of all ages were out to enjoy yesterday’s private practice for season ticket holders and sponsors.
