The Redskins will be without cornerback Josh Norman Monday night against the Eagles, the team announced.
Norman, dealing with a rib injury, has just 14 tackles and zero interceptions in four games this season. The Redskins also listed fellow starting cornerback Bashaud Breeland as questionable with a knee injury.
I think Breeland’s always been a fast healer. He’s like Gumby, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said, via redskins.com. I mean, he took a pretty big shot on that play and I thought he was going to be out for a little bit of time but he recovers quickly.
The Eagles (5-1) lead the NFC East after winning four straight games.

I see a way to maximize rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky’s talents. I see a glaring weakness for Ravens QB Joe Flacco. And I see a rookie who needs the rock for the Colts.
Let’s break down ways each of these offenses can improve right now, starting with the Ravens and Dolphins, who play on Thursday night:
Through seven games, the Ravens have converted only 35.1 percent of third-down opportunities, which ranks 26th in the NFL. Rough. And multiple factors have contributed to this.
Joe Flacco? The quarterback has a Total QBR of Jake Matthews Jersey just 30.0, which ranks above only Mike Glennon and DeShone Kizer among qualifiers. But he has been much worse on third downs. His QBR is 5.3, which ranks dead last. In fact, that would rank as the worst third-down QBR season since the stat began in 2006.
