Redskins Josh Norman expected to miss a few weeks according to reports

Josh Norman went down with a rib injury after falling hard late in the first half Monday night against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Coach Jay Gruden provided the update on Norman and other injured players during a conference call with reporters Tuesday.

"Jay just told me right now that they expect Norman will likely be out for at least a couple of weeks", Salters said on the broadcast.

He made his presence felt in the second quarter with a big hit on Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Norman reacted immediately, jumping up and shaking his shoulder before running off of the field and then heading to the locker room. "I told them to put me out there as a decoy". Norman said after the 29-20 loss that he fell awkwardly on the heel of someone's shoe and that it hurt to breathe.

The good news is that the Redskins have a bye week next week, buying Norman some more time to heal.

The Redskins are an even 2-2 on the season and will take on the San Francisco 49ers in two weeks.

But losing Norman is a blow after he was off to a solid start this season. The unit dominated the Oakland Raiders in Week 3, and began Monday night by playing extremely well against the undefeated Chiefs.

In addition to being a quality corner in coverage, Norman hasn't shied away from helping against the run, and he aids safety D.J.
