Bengals Suspend OL Cordy Glenn For One Game


The Bengals have suspended OL Cordy Glenn for one game, the team announced on Friday.

Glenn will not count against the Bengals’ 53-man roster while he is suspended. 

The team previously fined Glenn $200,000 as the two sides have had friction over Glenn’s return from a concussion suffered during the preseason. Glenn and a member of the coaching staff had a heated argument Wednesday which resulted in Glenn eventually telling HC Zac Taylor to just cut him.

Glenn was reportedly upset because he believes that the team rushed him back from his concussion. Glenn was cleared to return from the concussion on Wednesday, but he was not at practice on Thursday. 

Glenn, 30, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2012. Buffalo traded Glenn to the Bengals last year as part of a pick swap. 

Glenn is currently in the fourth year of his five-year, $65 million contract that included $36 million guaranteed and a $16 million signing bonus. He stands to make base salaries of $7.25 million (2019) and $7.5 million (2020) over the remainder of the agreement.

In 2018, Glenn appeared in 13 games for the Bengals and made 13 starts for them.
