New Redskins DC Greg Manusky confirmed Josh Norman will shadow No. 1 wide receivers this season.
The Redskins were hesitant to use Norman in shadow coverage early last season, but they finally gave in during the second half of the year. This means Alshon Jeffery, Dez Bryant, and Odell Beckham can be expected to draw Norman twice per year on most of the snaps. We'll likely see Bashaud Breeland on Torrey Smith, Terrance Williams, and Brandon Marshall. Jun 4 - 2:11 PM

Date:

Josh Norman (concussion, wrist) is active for Week 8 against the Bengals.

Norman was fully expected to play after traveling with the team to London. Norman is expected to shadow A.J. Green, putting a slight dent in Green's outlook. Green is still a solid WR1 play, however.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Josh Norman (concussion) is expected to play in Week 8 against the Bengals.

It's likely that Norman will be assigned to A.J. Green for most of Sunday's game in London. Through seven weeks, Norman carries PFF's No. 15 coverage grade amongst well over 100 cornerbacks. Although Norman's activity is a downgrade to Green's matchup, Green remains a low-end WR1 in season-long leagues.

Josh Norman (concussion) is questionable for Week 8 against the Bengals.

He's fully expected to play after traveling to London and practicing again on Friday. Norman will very likely shadow A.J. Green on both sides of the field.

Redskins LCB Josh Norman (concussion) has been cleared to travel to London for the team's Week 8 game against the Bengals.

He's expected to receive final clearance following Friday's practice. It's bad news for A.J. Green, though Norman is unlikely to shadow Green all afternoon. Green remains an elite WR1.

Josh Norman (concussion, wrist) practiced again on Thursday.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim noted that Norman was "moving well" during individual drills. Norman will have to get cleared by an independent doctor before the team departs for London later today. If cleared, he could see a fair amount of Bengals wideout A.J. Green in Week 8.

Josh Norman (concussion, wrist) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

The Redskins are leaving for London on Thursday, meaning Norman will have to be cleared in the next 24 hours if he's going to make the trip. His presence at practice is a good sign, but with Washington's bye coming up, the Redskins may play it safe by keeping Norman in the states. If that's the case, Bengals receiver A.J. Green could be in for a monster fantasy week.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden suggested Josh Norman (concussion) will need to be cleared before the team leaves for London Thursday to play this week.

"So hopefully by [Thursday] we’ll have a good answer," Gruden said. "We’ll have to have one by then, without a doubt." It seems unlikely Norman is completely cleared by then after suffering a concussion Sunday, suggesting he will not be available to face the Bengals. We should know for sure by Thursday night.

Redskins LCB Josh Norman has been diagnosed with a concussion.

It's the second known concussion of Norman's pro career. He suffered one during the 2015 preseason with Carolina. Norman looked like he might have also injured his shoulder, but perhaps the Redskins dodged a bullet on that one. Norman should be considered week to week, and questionable for next Sunday against the Bengals. Washington goes on bye in Week 9.

Redskins LCB Josh Norman was forced from Washington's Week 7 game against the Lions with a possible concussion.

In the process of interfering with Marvin Jones — who made a 52-yard catch anyways — Norman landed extremely hard on his left shoulder area. His head also snapped back to the turf, which is apparently the more serious issue. Norman remained down on the field for several minutes before slowly making his way to a cart headed for the locker room. He's almost certainly done for the day.

Redskins LCB Josh Norman will be playing with a cast on his "heavily sprained" right wrist against the Eagles.

Norman's status isn't in doubt, but a cast could be a liability when it comes to hand checking and, of course, catching. Norman hasn't ruled out taking a pain-killing injection.

Redskins LCB Josh Norman exited Sunday's Week 5 game with a first-quarter arm injury, but returned in the second quarter.

Norman was down for quite awhile after a collision with Mike Wallace. He appeared to injure his elbow or arm. Norman went to the locker room before returning for the second quarter with a wrap on his right wrist.
Sun, Oct 9, 2016 01:45:00 PM

Redskins CB Josh Norman told ESPN's Ed Werder that his "office is on the left side of the field, hours are 1 to 4."

The Redskins' use of Norman has been a hot topic this week. The team was criticized for keeping Norman on the left side while Antonio Brown roasted Bashaud Breeland on Monday night. Now it looks like Norman will stay on the left side again with Breeland matching up with Dez Bryant in Week 2. Richard Sherman stays on the left side in Seattle for the most part, so this isn't that unusual an approach. With that said, it's still surprising the Redskins would fork over a huge contract to Norman and not ask him to cover the other team's best receiver on a weekly basis.

The MMQB reports Redskins CB Josh Norman will be a "regular contributor" to FOX's NFL coverage this season.

Norman will make a "minimum" of 10 appearances. "I haven’t told coach (Jay) Gruden or (DC Joe) Barry yet, but I’ll give them a nice shout out on TV," Norman said. Oh. "It’s not at all going to be a distraction," he claimed. It wasn't a (noticeable) distraction for Brandon Marshall in 2015, but it's hard to see how it won't affect Norman's preparation, if nothing else by sapping some of his energy. Gruden and the Redskins are no doubt thrilled.

Redskins GM Scot McCloughan said the Josh Norman signing will not prevent the team from adding a corner in the draft.

Washington has their starters locked in with Norman and Bashaud Breeland, but it never hurts to add depth, especially with Chris Culliver's (ACL, MCL) availability in question. That said, signing Norman almost certainly takes them out of the corner market in the first round. With corner strengthened, the Redskins will likely look to the defensive front seven on Day 1.
