Cordy Glenn at Odds With Bengals Over Concussion

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

Per multiple sources, the Bengals and Glenn have been at odds regarding the concussion, its symptoms, whether he’s able to return, the need for second opinions, and how the player feels. At some point, the situation prompted the Bengals to fine Glenn $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the team.

 

As one source explained it to PFT, things got heated on Wednesday. Glenn and a member of the Bengals’ coaching staff argued (a witness thought at one point that it was going to turn physical), and Glenn eventually told coach Zac Taylor to just cut him.

 

 

If I am not mistaken, wasn't he at odds with the Bills as well over his foot injury while here? Either way, they are likely headed for a divorce one way or another most likely.

I thought they have independent physicians that monitor the concussion protocol.  If so, then Glenn has nothing to complain about.

I always like Cordy, I wanted us to draft him and we did. He was amazing at Georgia, had a little trouble with speed rushers but he has done well. He would be an above average RT or LT and would be great depth for our OT overall in case someone goes down.

The story was that the Bills thought he could go but he wasn’t giving the full effort to come back from the foot thing

I knew there was something behind the story, but couldn't remember the full details of it.

Glenn was a monster his first few years here.   And when it comes to concussions the Bengals should know better not to mess around.  That said the guy hasnt played a full season since 2015, and in any job the best ability is availability.   If he plays again he probably will need a very good situation to be motivated.

In spite of being cleared, he doesn't want to play.

 

Why would we want someone on the team that doesn't want to play?

Seems like he's turned into a free loader. Glad we moved him. Doesn't seem like he fits the chemistry of the team.

If he becomes a free agent and believes he is 100% and wants to play the Bills should check him out.

A while back I got thrashed by several posters here for suggesting that Cordy mailed it in after he got paid.  Looks like that was accurate.

I keep thinking about Jairus Byrd and how he manipulated the Bills, and totally screwed the Saints, over that foot injury that no one else could see.

 

Byrd's goal was to make a lot of money and walk away a healthy, wealthy young man.  He probably liked playing football but recognized the dangers.  He worked the system.  Perhaps Glenn is doing the same thing.

How did Byrd manipulate the Bills? Or screw over the Saints for that matter?

By avoiding playing as much as possible.  Check out news stories about him and the Saints.  They describe his signing as a complete disaster for their organization.

Funny, in these situations I always think of JR Richard, the Astros pitcher who complained about arm pain and everyone said nothing was wrong with him...and he was just being a diva and crybaby.....and then a blood clot broke away in his arm, went to his brain and he nearly died of a stroke.  Of course, there are some athletes (Jalen Ramsey, maybe) who milk or even fake injuries, but when athletes say something is wrong with their bodies, I think it's best to trust them.

I think Jairus claimed he had plantar fasciitis.  It can last a while and varies from person to person.  Hard to prove one way or another.

Well, without any other knowledge than what you've just said:

 

1) Under the CBA, the player has the right to seek a second medical opinion for any injury.  The team and its coaches should have nothing to say about whether there's a need.  From the link:

The CBA gives players the right to a second medical opinion concerning their physical ability or inability to play football. The club must pay for this provided the player:

  • First consults with the club physician prior to seeing the second opinion physician; and
  • Makes sure that the physician rendering the second opinion provides the club with a copy of his/her report.

If a player is a candidate for surgery, he has the right to select a surgeon of his choice to perform the surgery. However, unless the surgery is an emergency, the player must first consult the club physician and give due consideration to any recommendation made by the club physician. All medical bills are to be paid by the club.

2) I thought this kind of wrangling was exactly what the NFL's Concussion Protocol was designed to remove - the team and its physicians do not get to "clear" a player to return.  It has to be handled by an independent neurologist using, among other things, individualized baseline testing.
