Glenn wins Bills left tackle job

The Buffalo Bills drafted Cordy Glenn to eventually be their franchise left tackle when they chose him in the second round.

Eventually just became now, as the Bills coach Chan Gailey announced Monday that Glenn had beaten out second-year man Chris Hairston and will be Buffalo's starter at left tackle.

"Cordy's got great ability," Gailey told the Buffalo News. "Ability's not the issue. It's just playing time. He needs as much playing time as he can get. I think if he gets playing time he's got a chance to be a really good football player.

"He's not done great against the two good pass-rushers he's faced [Brian Orakpo and Jared Allen], but he's done OK. And I think that we see a great upside with him."

Glenn, of course, will have the all-important job of protecting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's blind side.

The other news of the day from Bills camp is that Gailey confirmed that Vince Young has continued to widen the gap over Tyler Thigpen in the race to be the No. 2 quarterback behind Fitzpatrick.

"He's got the edge or I wouldn't have given him more reps, because he's made more things happen," Gailey said. "So you gotta give him credit for that. But we need to see how much he can handle, see if he can handle the whole load. Because once you get to the season he doesn't get many reps. So we've got to find out how he can handle all this."
