The Buffalo Bills got some reinforcements during training camp Saturday, as starting left tackle Cordy Glenn returned to the lineup.

Glenn opened camp on the non-football illness list but returned after passing a physical. No one is saying what caused him to miss the first few weeks at camp, but Glenn said he's happy to be back:

"It was frustrating just not being out here with the fellas and not working every day with them. I’m back now, and I’m just trying to knock off the rust a little bit."

The 24-year-old Glenn is a key part of the offensive looking to improve upon its second-place finish last season in total rushing yards. The two-year player started every game last season and is on the verge of earning Pro Bowl status as he enters his third professional season.

He said he will take several days to get fully up to speed, but he does figure to play in Saturday's preseason game at the Pittsburgh Steelers:

"I wouldn’t say I could just jump back in, but you’ve got to get back in the swing of things and just get comfortable again out here. Not being out with the guys every day and working every day, you have to get back in the swing of things and get your routine back down pat."

Center Eric Wood, the team's leader on the offensive line, said it's good to have Glenn back in the fold:

"Cordy has pretty rare genes when it comes to offensive linemen. He was born with a ton of strength and a ton of athleticism. There are some little nuances of the techniques that will take a little bit of time, but he’s a good enough player that it won’t take too long."

Filling in this far had been Seantrel Henderson. The seventh-round pick gained some first-team playing time that he otherwise never would have had and played above what his draft status would project. 

Henderson said he's be open to shifting to another spot on the line if asked, but the subject has not been broached by the

"I’ve just been trying to get better and better every day. I’ve been working with the rest of the offensive line and the coaches. Even coach (Doug) Marrone, he’s real hands on with us as far as technique is concerned. I’ve just been trying to do everything that the coaches have told me to do, and so far I’ve been pretty successful."

The Bills practice at 2 p.m. Sunday before leaving for Pennsylvania. They'll practice with the Steelers twice this week in advance of Saturday's game.
