  • Josh Norman: Set to join Buffalo

    Norman is expected to be signed to the Bills' practice squad, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Norman last appeared in a game with the Panthers in Week 18 of the 2022 campaign and he'll bring 10 years of NFL experience to Buffalo, who he played for in 2020. With Christian Benford (shoulder) still banged up, Norman will provide additional depth at cornerback for the Bills.

  • 49ers' Josh Norman: Questionable Monday

    Norman (ribs) is questionable for Monday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Norman logged two tackles in last week's loss to the Cardinals, and he's dealing with a rib injury ahead of Monday's contest. If he's unable to play, Dontae Johnson should see a slight uptick in playing time.

  • 49ers' Josh Norman: Slated to play Sunday

    Norman (chest) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Norman missed last week's game due to a chest injury but was a full participant in Friday's practice. He should see a slightly increased role with K'Waun Williams (calf) sidelined against Arizona.

  • 49ers' Josh Norman: Questionable with chest injury

    Norman is questionable to return to Sunday's Week 3 contest against the Packers after suffering a chest injury. It's unclear how Norman suffered the injury, though he was spotted walking to the locker room to be evaluated. It's unclear how serious the issue may be, but K'Waun Williams (calf) is already sidelined, so the 49ers' cornerback corps is getting increasingly thin.

  • 49ers' Josh Norman: Signs with 49ers

    Norman agreed to terms with the 49ers on Sunday, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports. Norman appeared in nine games during his lone season with the Bills last year but totaled just 24 tackles (21 solo), an interception, two fumble recoveries and a touchdown. The 33-year-old was relegated to a depth role down the stretch in 2020 but will attempt to carve out consistent playing time in San Francisco to begin the 2021 campaign.

  • Bills' Josh Norman: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Norman has tested positive for COVID-19, The Buffalo News reports. He has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will not play Sunday at Arizona. This is a rough development for the Bills, who will also lose defensive backs Levi Wallace and Dean Marlowe due to close contact protocols. Tight end Tyler Kroft also has been placed on the list due to close contact with Norman, so in all, four players and one assistant coach will not travel with the team.

  • Bills' Josh Norman: Ready to retake field

    Norman (hamstring) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game in Arizona. Norman resumed handling full practice reps Friday, setting the stage for him to retake the field after a three-week absence. Levi Wallace has handled a starting role across from Tre'Davious White since returning from IR in Week 8, though, so Norman may be relegated to a backup role at cornerback versus the Cardinals.

  • Bills' Josh Norman: Missing another contest

    Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Norman (hamstring) won't suit up against the Seahawks on Sunday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. Norman will miss a third straight game due to his lingering hamstring injury. Levi Wallace's recent return to the starting lineup across from Tre'Davious White minimizes the impact of Norman's absence, though, as he could now be relegated to just a key depth role when healthy.

  • Bills' Josh Norman: Pops up on injury report

    Norman was limited at Thursday's practice due to a hamstring injury. Norman missed the first three games of the season while residing on IR with a hamstring issue, so it's unclear if this is connected to that same issue. Expect his practice availability throughout the week to shed more light on his chances to play Sunday. If the veteran were forced to miss any more time with injury, Taron Johnson and Cam Lewis (wrist) would be in line for an uptick in snaps.

  • Bills' Josh Norman: Declared out for Week 1

    Norman (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's season opener against the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Norman has missed three straight practices due to his hamstring injury, and he'll now turn his attention toward getting healthy in time to face the Dolphins in Week 2. Levi Wallace will handle a starting role opposite Tre'Davious White as long as Norman is unable to go.

  • Bills' Josh Norman: Unable to practice Wednesday

    Norman (hamstring) will not participate in Wednesday's practice, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. Norman has been nursing a hamstring injury since late August. He managed to participate on a limited basis last week, so today's lack of activity represents a step in the wrong direction. With Levi Wallace (knee) also having missed time due to injury recently, it remains to be seen who will handle the starting cornerback job opposite Tre'Davious White during Week 1's tilt against the Jets. It's also worth noting Norman is listed as a starter ahead of Wallace on the team's unofficial published depth chart from Thursday, though both players should play quite a bit depending on health.

  • Bills' Josh Norman: Injures hamstring Thursday

    Norman suffered a hamstring injury during Thursday's practice, NFL.com reports. Norman dealt with hamstring, thigh and knee injuries last season, and it's unclear if this is related. Head coach Sean McDermott didn't have an update on the severity of Norman's injury. The veteran cornerback is battling with Levi Wallace for the No. 2 role opposite Tre'Davious White, and he has experience playing with McDermott from their time in Carolina.

  • Josh Norman: Released by Washington

    Norman was released by Washington on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The move frees up $12.5 million in cap space while leaving a $3 million dead-money charge behind. There was some thought Norman could stay in Washington for a reunion with new head coach Ron Rivera, but the cornerback would've needed to accept a pay cut to have any shot at making it work. The 32-year-old now becomes an unrestricted free agent, and the fact he was released -- rather than having his contract expire -- means he doesn't need to wait until the start of the new league year to sign with a team. PFF graded Norman at No. 111 among 113 qualified cornerbacks in 2019, with the stat sheet showing 40 tackles (33 solo), six pass defenses, one interception, one forced fumble and one sack in 12 games (eight starts). There's still some playmaking ability beneath the eroding coverage skills, so teams could inquire about a position shift to safety.

  • Redskins' Josh Norman: Questionable for Week 17

    Norman (illness) is questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Cowboys, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports. Norman has been battling a lingering illness since Dec. 12, though he managed to play through the ailment Week 15 against the Eagles before being left off the field Week 16. With Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) on injured reserve, Washington could have need of Norman during Sunday's regular-season finale.

  • Redskins' Josh Norman: Ready for Sunday's contest

    Norman (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Norman was able to practice fully Friday, so it's no surprise that he shook off his illness in time. The veteran cornerback has been left off the field on defense over the last three weeks, but the team may need to use him again since Quinton Dunbar (hamstring) is inactive.

  • Redskins' Josh Norman: Won't start Sunday

    Coach Bill Callahan said Norman will play Sunday against the Panthers but won't be a starter, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Norman recovered from a hamstring injury before this past Sunday's win over the Lions, but he was nearly a healthy scratch before the coaching staff had a last-second change of heart. Although active, Norman didn't play a defensive snap during the contest. The team looks ready to roll with the same plan, so Jimmy Moreland will likely start in Norman's place.

  • Redskins' Josh Norman: Playing through pain

    Coach Bill Callahan said Norman didn't start Sunday's game against Detroit because he has been playing through an injury, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Callahan would go on to say that it was Norman's decision to be active Sunday and that he wasn't sure Norman will return to the starting lineup once fully healthy. Norman was benched midway through Week 11's loss to the Jets, but it's unclear whether the injury was a factor in that decision. The veteran's practice availability throughout next week will shed more light on his chances to suit up for Week 13.

  • Redskins' Josh Norman: Active after all

    Norman (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions. Reports surfaced shortly before pregame warmups that Norman would be inactive despite the hamstring issue not being much of a concern. The team ultimately pivoted from that plan, making Aaron Colvin a healthy scratch while Norman dresses for the contest. Though he'll be in uniform, Norman doesn't seem likely to be in store for a major role on defense after he was benched midway through the Week 11 loss to the Jets. Instead, expect Quinton Dunbar, Fabian Moreau, Simeon Thomas and Jimmy Moreland to work as the Redskins' main cornerbacks.

  • Redskins' Josh Norman: Looking at healthy absence

    Norman -- who is healthy after shaking off a hamstring injury -- is not expected to be active for Sunday's game against Detroit, Erin Hawksworth of 1067 The Fan reports. Norman was downgraded to limited participation for Friday's practice but is assumed to be healthy. While news of the healthy scratch comes as a surprise, it was foreshadowed by Norman's benching in the second half of Washington's loss to the Jets in Week 11. The decision opens the door for more snaps for Fabian Moreau and Simeon Thomas. Expect Moreau and Quinton Dunbar to assume the starting cornerback roles for the game sans Norman.
