DETROIT -- Washington Redskins star cornerback Josh Norman suffered a concussion with 8:39 remaining in the third quarter on Sunday against Detroit. He has been ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Norman banged the side of his head tumbling over receiver Marvin Jones Jr., who made a diving 52-yard reception on a deep throw from Matthew Stafford despite Norman committing pass interference on the play. After being evaluated on the field, he immediately headed to the locker room with assistance from the Redskins' medical staff.
Norman signed a five-year, $75M contract with the Redskins this spring after Carolina rescinded its nonexclusive franchise tag on him.
Earlier in the game, Lions cornerback Darius Slay injured his hamstring and was declared out for the remainder of their game.
Slay, who received a four-year, $48-million contract extension this summer, was replaced by Johnson Bademosi.
Detroit was already playing without two key defensive performers, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and linebacker DeAndre Levy.
