Now according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Norman is dealing with two bruised lungs and tissue damage, which may have caused some internal bleeding. But even with tests ongoing, Norman hopes to play next week.
San Francisco could certainly use Norman, who played well in his 49ers debut in Week Two against the Eagles. The team is particularly thin at corner, with Jason Verrett and Davontae Harris on injured reserve and K'Waun Williams needing to leave Sunday’s game early on with a calf injury.
Norman was on the field for 48 percent of San Francisco’s defensive snaps before suffering the chest injury. He recorded a tackle and forced a fumble.
The 49ers play the Seahawks in Week Four.
