Report: 49ers' Norman has fractured ribs, trying to play originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Not much is going right for Josh Norman right now, including how his body feels. 

Josina Anderson reported Tuesday night, citing a source, that the 49ers cornerback has fractured ribs and is trying to play through it. 

Norman is in hot waters after the antics he pulled Sunday in the 49ers' 31-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals

He was penalized for taunting after finding himself in the middle of a kerfuffle on the Cardinals' sideline. On the same play, Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The Cardinals would have been dealt a fourth-and-35 situation on San Francisco's 36-yard line. Instead, they received an automatic first down thanks to Norman, and quickly set up kicker Matt Prater for a successful 26-yard field goal.

Norman was immediately sent to the 49ers' bench and didn't see the field again.

The 33-year-old leads the NFL with four forced fumbles, but has a low 53.0 Pro Football Focus grade through six games for the Niners.
