Norman suffered a hamstring injury during the first week of training camp, but returned to practice in a limited fashion on Sept. 3. However, he suffered a setback and missed three straight practices in Week 1 before the team officially ruled him out for Sunday’s season opener against the New York Jets.
Buffalo signed Norman, a former first-team All-Pro, to a one-year deal this offseason to compete with Levi Wallace for the starting cornerback job opposite Tre’Davious White. The team has had precious little time to evaluate both players, however, as both Norman and Wallace battled hamstring injuries throughout training camp.
Wallace will presumably start Sunday’s game, his 24th career start — all with the Bills.
