On Friday, the Bills ruled out cornerback Josh Norman for the season opener. On Saturday, the Bills ruled out Norman for the first three games.
The team announced it has placed Norman on injured reserve.
He will have to miss at least the first three games before returning.
Norman’s hamstring injury has kept him out of practice for some time, so now he will get a chance to heal it before getting back on the field to prevent re-injuring it by returning too soon.
Cornerback Levi Wallace was on the injury report this week with a hamstring injury, though he not get an injury designation for Sunday. Defensive tackle Vernon Butler received a questionable designation with a hamstring injury.
So the Bills are covering their bases.
