Bills Notebook: Glenn, Matthews 'progressing;' Jonathan Williams 'day-to-day'

Although Sean McDermott said "nothing has changed" with the health status of Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Cordy Glenn, the coach wasn't presenting it as a bad thing.

In fact, McDermott sounded encouraged about Glenn, who recently received an injection to help treat the chronic soreness in his left foot.

"Cordy is progressing," McDermott said, adding that Glenn would be on the field for the Bills' walk-through practice Tuesday. During the brief early period open to the media, Glenn was seen on the sidelines, working with ropes and riding a stationary bicycle.

"We feel like we're on schedule at this point," McDermott said.

The coach said wide receiver Jordan Matthews was also progressing and on schedule in his recovery from a chip fracture in his sternum. McDermott said the receiver was cleared to do more in practice.

Running back Jonathan Williams is listed as "day-to-day" with a knee injury he suffered "the other day in practice," McDermott said.

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus (quad injury) and linebacker Ramon Humber (oblique strain) were limited in Tuesday's practice, according to the coach.

McDermott also mentioned that wide receiver Rod Streater remains "week-to-week" with the toe injury he suffered in last Thursday night's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Bills officially placed wide receiver Anquan Boldin on the reserve/retired list. That opened a spot on their 90-man preseason roster.

The Bills experimented in their first two preseason games with the location of offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

After spending the preseason-opener against the Minnesota Vikings on the Bills' sidelines, Dennison moved upstairs to the coaches' booth at Philadelphia.

"He’s still thinking about what he wants to do this week and to get a feel for home versus away and all the setup that goes into that," McDermott said. "I thought the communication was extremely clear on the offensive side of the ball, and that’s important for the quarterbacks and our timing.

"Our tempo was outstanding the other night. We got in and out of the huddle. We executed in two-minute and drove the football so at this point, that’s undecided moving forward. But I thought, overall, that that was a healthy part of the game the other night, offensively."

McDermott took a moment while meeting with reporters to mention the recent passing of Joe Kelly, father of Hall-of-Fame quarterback Jim Kelly. "Just to let everyone know in the Kelly family that you are in our thoughts and our prayers as the events of the last couple of days have unfolded," the coach said.
