More bad news for the Washington Redskins coming off a tough Monday night loss to the Kansas City Chiefs 29-20.

And, confirming our worst fears, it looks like they will have to carry on without their defensive unit's best player for quite a while.

"Associated lung issues" is quite terrifying.

The Pro Bowl corner had to leave just before halftime after assisting on a tackle that wound up fracturing his ribs and damaging the lining to his lungs.

Luckily for the team, they do have a bye this week, which will cut into that missed time. Regardless, Norman has a physicality that can't be replaced.

Washington takes on the 49ers in their return Week 6, with Kendall Fuller and third-year corner Quinton Dunbar having to shoulder the load moving forward.
