Norman (ribs) performed a light workout in the Redskins' weight room Thursday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Norman was able to do some cardio on the treadmill and elliptical before doing some lower-body exercises with light weight. Although he's still expected to miss the next three games, being able to work out throughout his recovery is a good sign with respect to him rounding back into football shape and making a Week 9 return.
Norman (ribs) is expected to be sidelined for four weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Norman benefits from being on a bye this week, so his four-week timeline sets him up to return in Week 9 against the Seahawks, missing just three games in total. Although he suffered a fractured rib along with lung damage, Norman avoided a major injury that could have had a greater impact on his long-term availability. In Norman's absence, Kendall Fuller and Quinton Dunbar will both see increased snaps.
Norman (ribs, lung) could avoid missing any games, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Norman is recovering from a fractured rib as well as minor damage to the lining of his lung. His timeline initially was estimated at 2-to-4 weeks, but it seems he could return a bit sooner after doctors confirmed that he avoided significant lung damage. The Redskins have a Week 5 bye before returning to action Oct. 15 against the 49ers.
Norman is expected to require 2-to-4 weeks to recover from a fractured rib, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Norman suffered the injury while making a tackle in Monday's 29-20 loss to the Chiefs, with Redskins head coach Jay Gruden relaying the cornerback's likely recovery timetable after the contest. Given that the Redskins are on bye in Week 5, it's conceivable that Norman could miss no games at all if he's able to meet the short end of that timetable or up to three games if his recovery veers toward the longer end. Norman's absence for any length would be a difficult one to overcome, as Bashaud Breeland would represent a significant downgrade if forced to act as the team's top corner.
Norman (ribs) is considered week-to-week, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports. ESPN's Lisa Salters reported Monday night that Norman was set to miss multiple weeks, but it looks like the Redskins will approach the cornerback's timetable on a more immediate basis. Luckily for Washington, it has a bye this week before taking on San Fransisco on Oct. 15, so Norman will have an extra week of rest before his status needs updating.
