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.
Oct 27 - 3:26 PM

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.
Oct 27 - 10:22 AM

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.
Oct 25 - 4:49 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.
Oct 24 - 3:24 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.
Oct 21 - 1:40 PM

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.
Oct 19 - 1:30 PM

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.
Oct 12 - 3:43 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.
Oct 6 - 11:44 AM

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.
Oct 4 - 2:24 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.
Oct 3 - 7:30 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.
Oct 2 - 10:21 PM

Redskins LCB Josh Norman (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

He has an AC joint sprain in his shoulder, but it's a day-to-day injury, and Norman is fully expected to face the Raiders on Sunday night. Despite the fact that Washington played Alshon Jeffery and Sammy Watkins in their first two games, Norman was not used as a shadow corner. He is playing only on the left side.
Sep 22 - 2:16 PM

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

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.
