Norman was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
Norman tested positive for the virus ahead of Week 9 and missed a thrilling game against the Cardinals, along with a few other Bills players who were considered close contacts. He'll be ready for Sunday's game against the Chargers, though it seems like Levi Wallace is the clear No. 2 cornerback these days opposite Tre'Davious White.
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.
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.
Norman was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury.
Norman has missed the past three games with the lingering hamstring issue, and considering Wednesday's practice availability, he doesn't appear a sure thing for Week 10. Levi Wallace's emergence in the starting lineup has limited the sting of Norman's absence, as Taron Johnson could also see more snaps should Norman miss Week 10.
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.
Norman (hamstring) will not practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The Bills did get starter Levi Wallace back for Sunday's win over the Patriots, so the team is not as cornerback deprived as it was a few weeks ago. Wallace eked out Norman for the starter's job this summer -- a late injury to Norman didn't help -- and the latter will return to pretty much a depth role once he's finally healthy again.
Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Norman (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
Norman will miss a second consecutive game due to a hamstring injury he suffered in practice. The Bills designated fellow cornerback Levi Wallace (ankle), the starter to begin the season, to return to practice this week, but it remains to be seen if his recovery timeframe could allow him to suit up in New England.
Norman (hamstring) is considered unlikely to suit up for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Norman missed the Bills' Week 7 win over the Jets due to a hamstring injury sustained in practice, and it now looks as though he's trending in the wrong direction to face New England. On a positive note for Buffalo, fellow cornerback Levi Wallace (ankle) has been designated to return to practice Wednesday.
Norman (hamstring) has been declared out for Sunday's game at the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Norman was fine entering the practice week, but he suffered the injury during a session and is now out for at least one game. With starter Tre'Davious White (back) and fellow corner Cam Lewis (wrist) both listed as questionable, the Bills may now have issues fielding a strong pass defense Sunday against New York and a returning Sam Darnold, even when taking into account how anemic the opponent's offense has been to date this season.
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.
Norman was the second leading tackler on the Bills in Tuesday's loss to the Titans with seven stops (one for a loss) while also adding a pass defensed.
The stats are nice from an IDP perspective, but this was about as rough of a night for Norman and the Bills as a trip to Vegas with "The Hangover" guys. First, he was badly burned for a touchdown by A.J. Brown early in the game. Later, he was cast aside and sent flying by Derrick Henry in a play that will be given highlight run the rest of the season. If the NFL had an NBA version of "being posterized," this was it. All that said, Norman is healthy again and has been able to serve as a fill-in starter for the Bills, a role that will continue if either Tre'Davious White or Levi Wallace has to sit out one more game when the Bills take on the Chiefs in Week 6.
Norman's teammate Levi Wallace went on injured reserve Wednesday due to an ankle injury.
Norman was in a toe-to-toe battle with Wallace for the second starting cornerback job throughout training camp, but he suffered a hamstring injury and went on IR ahead of Week 1. Norman returned to action this week in a backup role to Wallace, but he saw increased snaps right away when his teammate went down during the game against the Raiders. Norman totaled four tackles and a key forced fumble and recovery in the win, and it now looks like the starting job is his to run with for a stretch.
Norman (hamstring) was officially activated off injured reserve Saturday.
The offseason signee returned to practice fully this week, so the move was expected. Norman should suit up for his first time as a Bill on Sunday in Las Vegas, though for now he seems set to serve in a depth role now that Levi Wallace has claimed the starting cornerback josh opposite TreDavious White.
Norman (hamstring) practiced Wednesday, indicating that he's been designated to return from injured reserve, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
The Bills can activate Norman at any point until Oct. 20, and he'll now have a chance to play in Week 4 versus the Raiders. Norman played 12 games in 2019 and allowed a 128.6 passer rating when targeted, so he's looking to bounce back in 2020. The Bills' pass defense has struggled to start the year, allowing at least 300 passing yards in two straight games.
Norman (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Norman was ruled out for Buffalo's Week 1 contest against the Jets on Friday. However, this move means he will be out until at least Week 4. Levi Wallace will serve as the team's outside corner opposite Tre'Davious White in the meantime.
Norman, who missed practice Wednesday-Friday this week, is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Jets due to a hamstring injury.
Norman will have to wait at least one more week to make his Bills debut. He'd been in a tight competition with Levi Wallace for the second starting cornerback spot, but in the short term he'll lose out on that battle due to injury.
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.
Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Norman (hamstring) will not practice, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
Norman's hamstring injury has kept him off the practice field all week, making him an unlikely candidate to suit up Sunday against the Jets. If Norman is indeed forced to miss time or limited in game-action, Levi Wallace will slot into a starting role opposite Tre'Davious White.
Norman (hamstring) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday.
At this point, it appears Levi Wallace will be starting opposite Tre'Davious White for Sunday's opener against the Jets, with Norman perhaps being able to get on the field in limited action in a best-case scenario.
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.
