The Washington Redskins suffered a blow to their defense on Monday night.
Josh Norman suffered a fractured rib during the the Redskins‘ 29-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to coach Jay Gruden. Norman exited just before halftime after assisting on a tackle of Chiefs receiver Chris Conley.
The Redskins are concerned Norman suffered a a possible internal injury, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. They are particularly concerned he is dealing with a possible lung issue, Rapoport added.
Gruden said Norman will continue to be evaluated and didn’t say after the game what the timeline for Norman’s recovery could be.
