Injury updates heading into the bye week

NFL: Washington Redskins at Baltimore Ravens Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Redskins are dealing with a number of injuries after the first four games of the season. They will get an extra week to heal up with an early bye this year.

Early reports on Josh Norman's rib injury suffered Monday night were a few weeks out. Head Coach Jay Gruden said there was a chance he could play vs the 49ers after the bye. Norman tweeted today that it would be 4 weeks, and Ian Rapoport confirmed it, noting his rib fracture and a small puncture of the lung.

If he does miss a month, Norman will miss games vs the 49ers, Eagles and Cowboys. A big stretch of games for a team trying to stay in the race for the NFC East title.

In better news for the Redskins, Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams won't need knee surgery. Williams aggravated his kneecap during the Chiefs game, but was able to return to the game. Coach Gruden said he also had issues with the same knee during training camp. Rapoport says there's a chance he plays Week 6 vs the 49ers. The Redskins will need him, backup Ty Nsekhe is out for a few more weeks, and T.J. Clemmings is the next man up.
