Bengals and Offensive Tackle Cordy Glenn at Odds More than Concussion
Bengals and left tackle Cordy Glenn are at odds more than the team’s handling of his concussion according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Speak.com.
Per Florio, the sides are at loggerheads “regarding the concussion, its symptoms, regardless of whether he’s capable to return, the will need for second opinions, and how the player feels.” The Bengals have apparently fined Glenn $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the group, whilst factors reportedly “got heated” Wednesday. Glenn and a member of the Bengals’ coaching employees argued (a witness believed at 1 point that it was going to turn physical), and Glenn at some point told head coach Zac Taylor to just reduce him.
Substantially like Trent Williams in Washington, Glenn believes the Bengals have mishandled the scenario. He has however to play in 2019 soon after suffering the concussion in the preseason and, while he was cleared to resume practicing on Wednesday, it is protected to say he will not take the field for the Week 7 game against the Jaguars.
A second-round choose of the Bills in 2012 out of Georgia, the Bengals traded for Glenn in 2018 and he suited up for 13 out of 16 games final season at left tackle. It should really be noted that an independent neurologist (paid jointly by NFL/NFLPA) clears a player from concussion protocol, not the group or the player. What ever owner/GM Mike Brown’s reasoning for fining Glenn are, it is a terrible appear for a league supposedly emphasizing player security.
