Cornerback Josh Norman has a “significant” rib injury and will miss a “couple of weeks,” Washington coach Jay Gruden told ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters.

Norman tackled Chris Conley after a 21-yard gain before the two-minute warning. He left holding his ribs and went to the locker room with 1:54 remaining in the first half.

Quinton Dunbar replaced Norman.

Washington also downgraded running back Rob Kelley (ankle) to doubtful. Linebacker Martrell Spaight left early in the third quarter.

Washington did get left tackle Trent Williams (knee) back on the field.

  1. Great game! I’m glad the chiefs pulled it off so now my eagles sit in first place. That eagles-skins game on Monday night in Philly in a few weeks is gonna be a dog fight.

  2. Redskins are playing a lot tougher this year so far. Hopefully they keep it up. They had their chances but KC is legit!

  3. I wouldn’t be surprised if Norman launching himself at Travis Kelce for a big hit didn’t help the situation.

  4. Heck of a game last night. Doctson holds on to that pass and the Redskins might’ve come away winners. It still would’ve required an absolutely gassed defense to hold the Chiefs on their final drive but they would’ve had a chance.

    How many players did the Redskins lose last night? It seemed like people were dropping every other play. Time of possession was pretty crazy as well. The Chiefs held the ball over 30 minutes in the last 3 quarters.

  5. As a Chiefs fan who has had a chance to watch both Washington and Philadelphia this season, let me just say that the upcoming games between those two teams will not be for the faint of heart. Two very tough, physical defenses….

  6. .
    Never downplay the importance of injuries. Washington’s chances of winning last night’s game diminished considerably after Norman went down.
