Washington promoted Norris to the active roster Tuesday. Norris was elevated for the Week 1 loss to the Chargers, recording two tackles on special teams. Washington apparently liked what it saw enough to make Norris an honest member of the 53-man roster. He'll likely stay on special teams for the time being.
Norris (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Cowboys, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. Norris was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice, so he may have suffered a setback and will be sidelined for a third straight game. He has yet to play a snap on defense this season.
Norris (hamstring) won't play Sunday against the Bengals, Kyle Stackpole of Washington Football Team's official site reports. The special teams contributor will miss a second consecutive game as a result of the hamstring injury he suffered prior to last week's loss. Norris will hope to heal in time to suit up in Dallas on Thanksgiving.
Norris was promoted from the practice squad to Washington's active roster Friday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. The 27-year-old landed on the practice squad after failing to make the season-opening roster, but he'll be promoted ahead of the Week 4 matchup with Baltimore. Norris will provide depth at linebacker with Cole Holcomb (knee) ruled out and Kevin Pierre-Louis (illness) questionable for Sunday.
Norris signed a contract with the Redskins on Thursday. Norris didn't see any regular-season action during 2019 after being cut by the Panthers in August, but he'll now get a chance to compete in Washington. The 26-year-old could offer the Redskins some upside as a special-teams contributor.
