Norwell (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Norwell underwent an MRI to diagnose the severity of his ankle injury Monday, and he was placed on injured reserve shortly afterwards. The reliable left tackle's absence will have a notable impact on Jacksonville's offense, and it represents a particularly big loss for running back Leonard Fournette. Chris Reed is expected to start at left guard going forward.
Norwell is expected to miss a few weeks due to a sprained ankle, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Norwell's injury appears to be worse than initially thought. He's set to undergo an MRI on Monday to reveal the full extent of the injury, after which he should have a clearer timetable for return. For the time being consider him doubtful for Week 13, with Chris Reed likely to start at left guard if Norwell is held out.
Norwell exited the Week 12 contest during the fourth quarter so if he's unable to retake the field, it won't necessarily indicate anything about the severity of his injury. Chris Reed will start at left guard as long as Norwell remains sidelined.
Norwell (foot) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Dallas.
Norwell began the week with a protective boot on his left foot but is good to go for Week 6, as expected. The 26-year-old has battled the foot issue for the last few weeks, but he has yet to miss a start this season.
Norwell was seen wearing a protective boot on his left foot Monday, but head coach Doug Marrone expects the offensive lineman to be available for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.
Norwell has started all five games of the season despite injuring his foot two weeks ago. Look for the Jaguars to be careful with their prized lineman in practice this week to be sure he's able to suit up Sunday in Dallas.
