Josh Norman suffers damage to lung lining, could still play after bye

Gruden: Josh Norman 'Likely Out At Least a Couple of Weeks'

The Washington Redskins are looking to move to an impressive 3-1 to start the year on Monday night if they can beat the best team from the AFC West, the Kansas City Chiefs.

ESPN's Lisa Salters reported that Redskins coach Jay Gruden told her Norman is undergoing X-rays for the injury.

Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is out for the rest of Monday night's game against the Chiefs and likely a while longer.

20-Week Abortion Ban Passes House, Faces Uphill Battle in Senate
Supreme Court declined to hear a case in 2014 involving Arizona's 20-week abortion ban, which was blocked by lower courts. Left-leaning websites such as Vox claim the bill infringes on women's right to control their bodies.

He made his presence felt in the second quarter with a big hit on Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Norman said after the 29-20 loss that he fell awkwardly on the heel of someone's shoe and that it hurt to breathe.

The Redskins are ranked fourth and fifth in DVOA against opponents No. 1 and No. 2 wideouts, respectively. It was severe enough that Jay Gruden was convinced his star defender would be out "at least a couple of weeks". Because the Redskins have a bye this weekend, Norman might be able to return for the October 15 game vs. the San Francisco 49ers.

The Redskins have good corner depth: Norman was replaced by Quinton Dunbar, with Bashaud Breeland shifting over to the left side, where Norman typically plays. The worst-case scenario would have Norman missing not only the 49ers game, but subsequent contests vs. the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys. As we passed along Tuesday, Norman is "week-to-week" with the injury.
