Josh Norman (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

He's back after getting a breather on Wednesday. Norman should be ready to go Sunday against Arizona. Because Norman stays glued to the left side, his presence won't be a downgrade to Larry Fitzgerald's matchup.

Josh Norman (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

He was riding the stationary bike off to the side. The knee issue is new for Norman, and he played every snap last week. Norman has been relatively average this season as he approaches his 30th birthday Friday. Norman likely isn't going to see much of Larry Fitzgerald in the slot anyway this week.

Josh Norman (ribs) is active for Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Norman is returning, but Bashaud Breeland (knee) is inactive. It's not a stay-away matchup for Dez Bryant.

Josh Norman (ribs) is listed as questionable for Week 8 against Dallas.

Norman is expected to play after a limited week of practice. His return is a needed upgrade with Washington coming off a four-touchdown game to Carson Wentz. Dez Bryant should see a lot of Norman.

NFL Network's Jane Slater reports Josh Norman (ribs) is expected to be "good to go" Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Norman missed two games and had a bye week mixed in as he dealt with a broken rib and lung issue. He's been practicing the past two weeks and looks likely to be back to face Dez Bryant on Sunday afternoon. It'll be a big boost to the Skins' secondary, but not enough to avoid Bryant or Dak Prescott.

Josh Norman (ribs) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

Norman should be nearing a return after missing the last two games with a broken rib. Getting him back will be a big boost to the Redskins' secondary. It would be a downgrade for Dez Bryant if Norman is able to suit up against the Cowboys on Sunday.
Wed, Oct 25, 2017 04:49:00 PM

The Redskins expect Josh Norman (ribs) to resume practicing this week.

Norman has missed two games since the Redskins' Week 5 bye. His return would provide a major boost for a defense that deteriorated as Monday's loss to the Eagles rolled on.
Tue, Oct 24, 2017 03:24:00 PM

Redskins CB Josh Norman (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Eagles.

Norman was able to get in two limited practices this week but sat out Saturday's practice. Quinton Dunbar is expected to start in his place. In addition to Norman, OL Tyler Catalina (concussion) and OL Ty Nsekhe (abdomen) have also been ruled out for the Redskins.

Josh Norman (ribs) took part in individual drills at Thursday's practice.

It's Norman's first appearance at practice since going down with a broken rib in Week 4. Bashaud Breeland, who left Sunday's game with a sprained MCL, was also present for the start of Thursday's practice. It would be a downgrade for Alshon Jeffery if Norman returns against the Eagles on Monday Night Football.

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports Josh Norman (lung, ribs) could return against the Eagles in Week 7.

Norman hasn't resumed running yet but is already back in the weight room. Washington plays a Monday Night game in Week 7, which gives Norman an extra day to recover. Norman was originally given a four-week recovery window after going down with a broken rib in Week 4, but now it looks like he could be back in half that time.
Thu, Oct 12, 2017 03:43:00 PM

Josh Norman (ribs, lung) announced he'll be sidelined four weeks.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport offered confirmation. Norman has a broken rib and damage to the lining of his lung. The Redskins are on their bye week before dates with Pierre Garcon, Alshon Jeffery, and Dez Bryant in Weeks 6-8.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Josh Norman suffered a broken rib and damage to the lining of his lung in the Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.

Luckily for him, Norman didn't puncture his lung and could be back in Week 6 after this week's bye. Our best guess, however, is that Norman misses at least one game. Coach Jay Gruden already said Norman will be down 2-4 weeks. The Redskins were hit with a slew of injuries against the Chiefs.
Wed, Oct 4, 2017 02:24:00 PM

The Redskins expect Josh Norman (broken ribs) to miss 2-4 weeks.

"I don't know where it is, how severe the pain is for him," coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday. "But when you have to play bump and run, you have to tackle and all that stuff, I think it will be a pain-tolerance (issue)." With the Redskins headed on bye, it's possible Norman doesn't miss any time, but he seems likely to at least be sidelined for Week 6 against the 49ers.
Tue, Oct 3, 2017 07:30:00 PM

Redskins CB Josh Norman (ribs) is expected to be out a couple of weeks.

Norman was injured while making a tackle in the second quarter. It sounds like possible broken ribs with the quick diagnosis from the team. Quinton Dunbar replaced Norman opposite Bashaud Breeland. Pierre Garçon, Alshon Jeffery, and Dez Bryant are the next three No. 1 receivers up to face the Skins.
