Bills Place Josh Norman On IR

Josh Norman‘s Bills tenure will not include game action for a while. The team placed the veteran cornerback on IR Saturday.

Norman was already set to miss Week 1 with a hamstring injury. He will now be forced to miss at least two more games. The COVID-19 pandemic prompted the NFL to further alter its IR rule. Teams can activate an unlimited number of players from IR after three weeks, rather than the usual eight.

Buffalo signed Norman to a one-year, $6MM deal in March. Norman did not fare especially well for most of his four-year Washington tenure, but a Bills stay means a return to work with his former defensive coordinator in Sean McDermott. Those plans are now on hold.

The Bills also promoted cornerback Cam Lewis and defensive tackle Justin Zimmer from their practice squad Saturday.

    Is this guy washed up?
    I thought he was really good at one time, but these past few seasons. I just don’t know

      Helps he’s back with McDermott, but hamstring injuries are no good. As a Bills fan I hope it’s just the 3 weeks and back to business, cause he was having a good camp til the injury.

      He’s always been a tad overrated and capitalized on a breakout 2015 season to rob Bruce Allen of millions. He was awful last season, but should be better in McDermott’s scheme and in a reduced role
