Josh Norman active, Chris Thompson out for Redskins against Lions

LANDOVER — The Washington Redskins reversed course Sunday, deciding to make cornerback Josh Norman active after contemplating making him a healthy scratch against the Detroit Lions.

Multiple reports the Redskins had planned to scratch Norman, but when the team announced its inactives list Sunday, the 31-year-old was not among them.

Norman had been listed as questionable on Friday with a hamstring injury. It is still possible the cornerback could see limited playing time and Washington could potentially start rookie Jimmy Moreland in his place.

On Thursday, Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said he didn’t know why Norman was struggling this season.
