(TSX / STATS) -- Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman was ruled out for Monday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles because of a rib injury.

Coach Jay Gruden confirmed Saturday that Norman will miss another game.

Norman was able to practice on a limited basis this week. He suffered a fractured rib in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 2. At the time, he was expected to be sidelined about four weeks.

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar is expected to get the start for Norman.

Norman sustained the injury while making a tackle in the 29-20 loss to the Chiefs in another Monday night game.

The 29-year-old Norman, signed to a five-year, $75 million deal by Washington in April 2016, has 14 tackles, four passes defensed and two forced fumbles through four games this season. He appeared in all 16 games in 2016 for the third time in his first five NFL seasons, registering 67 tackles and three interceptions.
