LANDOVER — Redskins cornerback Josh Norman will miss Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers with a thigh injury.
Norman was listed as questionable heading into the contest, but did not practice all week. He was listed with a thigh injury for the first time on Wednesday, four days after Washington’s win over the Miami Dolphins. The 31-year-old has also been battling a hand injury but has played through that.
This is Norman’s first missed game since Week 7 of the 2017 season. Fabian Moreau is expected to start outside opposite of Quinton Dunbar and rookie Jimmy Moreland will slide into the slot.
Of the Redskins’ seven inactives this week, six are injured.
The Redskins announced Friday that running back Chris Thompson (toe), tight end Vernon Davis (concussion), guard Wes Martin (chest), linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons (hamstring) and safety Deshazor Everett (ankle) would be out against the 49ers.
With Thompson out, the Redskins promoted running back Craig Reynolds from the practice squad and waived wideout Cam Sims.
Quarterback Colt McCoy was also listed inactive. He is a healthy scratch.
