Redskins' Josh Norman planning celebration that puts NFL in awkward spot

Redskins' Josh Norman planning celebration that puts NFL in awkward spot

Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is already an All-Pro antagonist, but according to a Thursday report from For The Win, his best work is yet to come. 

Norman was forced to abandon his favorite bow and arrow celebration after getting fined by the NFL. But he has divised a clever replacement that sets the league up to look hypocritical. 

"Since they sell beer on TV while kids are watching it, I’m thinking I might open a keg on the field, and I’m going to drink it on the field," Norman told Charlotte Wilder of FTW after Thursday's practice. "And I don’t see that being on the rule book.”

Of course, his bow and arrow gesture wasn't explicitly banned in the rule book, neither was tight end Vernon Davis' jump shot celebration, but both got penalized anyway. 

Except this time, the outspoken corner thinks he has the NFL, well, cornered. If encouraging people to drink beer in commercial breaks is cool, then pretending to drink beer on the field must be cool too, right?

“I mean, you’re selling ads on TV, so why can’t my celebration be legal? It’s a catch-22, man. These guys are serious.”

There's only one snag in Norman's plan: it's not exactly clear what he's doing in the celebration he demonstated. He pantomimed opening a keg, tapping it and hoisting it above his head to drink from it. 

But what if people don't get it? He'll just explain afterward, he assured Wilder. 

Norman might consider pretending to pop the tab on a can of beer and drink it in the endzone. Seems more straight forward, but then again, I'm not the master troll here.

Injury report: Cravens a full go in practice but status for game still uncertain

Injury report: Cravens a full go in practice but status for game still uncertain

Redskins linebacker Su’a Cravens was a full participant in practice for the first time since getting a concussion in a game against the Browns on October 2.

That certainly is good news regarding the rookie’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Lions but that still remains up in the air. Cravens is still in the NFL’s concussion protocol.

“He’s going to get evaluated tomorrow, but he did everything today,” said Gruden. “So it’s just the progression of things and the protocol. He’s get checked out by the independent [doctor] tomorrow and hopefully he’ll get good news.”

More Redskins: Redskins one of the best at preventing long plays

Gruden said that getting through practice was not a problem for Cravens.

“He looked great today,” he said. “He did a lot of stuff with linebackers. He did some scout team safety, so he did some good stuff.”

Meanwhile, Jordan Reed, who also is in the concussion protocol, did not practice after participating on a limited basis on Wednesday. But Gruden made it a point to say that Reed did not suffer a setback.

“We just thought, the medical staff thought, today it was best to keep him out,” said Gruden. “And he’ll get evaluated again tomorrow by the independent doctor.”

Also missing practice was wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who was out for a second straight day.

“DeSean’s just got soreness in his shoulder and we chose to keep him out today,” said Gruden.

Yesterday, Jackson expressed confidence that he will play. Today, Gruden did the same.

“Yeah, as long as it’s not his legs, but we’ll see,” said Gruden when asked if Jackson will play. “We’ll see how he’s feeling. You know, seriously, though, he’s sore right now but we’ll continue to get him treatment today and we’ll see how he’s doing tomorrow.”

Jackson has been out of Wednesday practices on a few occasions during the season so it was not unusual to see him out yesterday. But Jackson being out two days in a row is a bit more alarming but we will have to see how he is doing tomorrow.
