Norman notched a season high nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Norman was one of three Redskins to play every defensive snap Sunday. He made his time on the field count, as he was effective in the tackle department. The 29-year-old surprisingly has yet to record a pick this season, but will look to fix that Sunday against Drew Brees and the Saints.

Norman recorded four tackles (two solo) and had a fumble recovery in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the two previous games due to a broken rib, Norman returned to the field against the Cowboys. He didn't appear to be bothered by the rib injury, tying a season-high with 68 defensive snaps in the contest. He'll now shift his focus to Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and the rest of Seahawks' receiving corps.

Norman (ribs) is active for Sunday's contest against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

With the aid of a Week 5 bye, Norman will miss just two games as the result of broken rib, which may be a hindrance in his return. As evidence, he told Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site Friday that he still "feels a little sore." No matter his health, Norman will do his best to shut down Dak Prescott, Dez Bryant and the Cowboys passing attack.

Norman (ribs) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Norman was limited in Thursday's practice, but it looks like the cornerback should be ready to go for a big matchup with the Cowboys after being out the last three weeks. Expect an official update on Norman's status to come in the next day or so, but if he is made active, Kendall Fuller would return to a reserve role in the secondary.

Norman (ribs) was limited in practice Thursday, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Jay Gruden hopes his star cornerback will receive clearance by Friday as he is now on been out for three weeks with a rib injury. Friday's injury report will go a long way in determining Norman's game status -- so look for more updates to come Friday afternoon. Should he be ruled out, expect Kendall Fuller to fill in for the contest.

Norman (rib) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Norman was limited all week, and the inactive designation doesn't come as much of a surprise considering the Redskins initially gave him a four-week timetable just two weeks ago. Look for Norman to continue targeting a return around Week 9.

Norman (ribs) was limited at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Norman has performing light workouts since his injury, but this is his first time practicing since the leadup to Week 4. It is certainly a step in the right direction, but considering the star cornerback was originally supposed to be out for four weeks, there is reason to believe Norman will require one more week of recovery before returning to action. Stay updated on his status as the week goes on.

Norman (ribs) performed a light workout in the Redskins' weight room Thursday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Norman was able to do some cardio on the treadmill and elliptical before doing some light-weighted, lower-body exercises. Although he's still expected to miss the next three games, being able to workout throughout the span of his recovery is a good sign for not only a Week 9 return, but also a quick return to football shape.

Norman (ribs) will miss four weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Norman benefits from being on a bye this week, so his four-week timeline sets him up to return in Week 9 against the Seahawks, missing just three games. Although he suffered a fractured rib along with lung damage, Norman avoided a major injury that could've affected him long term. In his absence, Kendall Fuller and Quinton Dunbar will both see an increase in their snap counts.

Norman (ribs, lung) could avoid missing any games, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkreports.

EDGE Analysis

Norman is recovering from a fractured rib as well as minor damage to the lining of his lung. His timeline initially was estimated at 2-to-4 weeks, but it seems he could return a bit sooner after doctors confirmed that he avoided significant lung damage. The Redskins have a Week 5 bye.
