Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman went to the locker room for a possible concussion during the third quarter of Sunday's Week 7 matchup at Detroit and was later ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Defending a deep pass thrown to Lions receiver Marvin Jones, Norman initially landed on his left arm and shoulder before his helmet slammed into the ground. He stayed on the ground for a few minutes before walking off the field and straight to the locker room.
The team announced Norman, who was already dealing with a wrist injury, was being evaluated for a concussion later in the quarter before providing a definite update.
Prior to that moment, the Lions had not truly tested Norman by throwing in the direction of Jones, their top receiver. He hauled in the perfect throw from quarterback Matthew Stafford for a 52-yard catch to Washington's 14. The Lions capped the drive for a short rushing touchdown, the first time either time reached the end zone.
