The Redskins suffered a debilitating last-second loss to the Chiefs on Monday night. The Redskins didn’t just lose the game, they lost their top corner Josh Norman as well. Norman will miss four weeks because of a bruised lung and rib injury.

Norman reported the news himself via Twitter:



Norman left the game at halftime and did not return Monday night. With Norman essentially out for a month, Bashaud Breeland, Joshua Holsey, Kendall Fuller, Quinton Dunbar, and Fabian Moreau will have to fill the cornerback void. Norman has helped the Redskins improve defensively this season holding opponents to 11th in yards allowed per game.


“That’s the first time that’s ever happened to where I couldn’t get out there,” said Norman via ESPN, who hasn’t missed a game since the 2014 season. “I just have to take my time and have faith.

“I wanted to go out there, but do I more help the team or hurt the team if I can’t really run and breathe hard?”


The good news for Washington is on a bye this week which should allow Norman to return week 9 against the Seahawks. The Skins sit at 2-2 on the season, good enough for tied for second in the NFC East.
