Norman may miss multiple weeks after rib fracture
Josh Norman fractured a rib in the Washington Redskins' loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is set for a spell on the sidelines after fracturing a rib.
When Norman left Monday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs in the second quarter with a rib injury, he was originally listed as questionable to return.
When the Redskins began the second half with a 10-7 lead, Norman was ruled out and could miss multiple games.
The Pro Bowl cornerback went to the locker room for X-rays and, after the Redskins' 29-20 loss, it was confirmed he had a rib fracture.
