Moments after Kirk Cousins‘ Hail Mary floated through the back of the end zone, Redskins cornerback Josh Norman voiced his frustrations at his postgame meet-up with reporters. Except, Norman didn’t vent about his team’s 27-23 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. He didn’t yell about Cousins’ second consecutive lackluster outing.
Instead, he went in on the NFL for drug testing him immediately following the game. He started when he met with reporters and, according to Michael Phillips, Norman was heard yelling at a trainer after his interviews ended.
“I don’t like how the NFL has us drug tested right after the game,” Norman told reporters, per the Richmond Times-Dispatch. “I don’t understand that. It’s crazy. I don’t have anything left in the tank, yet they want you to drug test. It’s crazy. I don’t understand it.
“I don’t get it,” Norman continued. “I really don’t. Shoot — we can’t wait until tomorrow?”
Norman explained that it’s a new NFL policy.
“This is the first time — they started it this year,” Norman said. “I don’t get it. I really don’t. What’s a day going to do? Twenty-four hours?”
Norman did, at least, enjoy a productive outing during the loss. He used the “Peanut punch” to force an Ezekiel Elliott fumble, setting up a field goal, and the Redskins finally allowed him to trail Dez Bryant as the game wore on. A week ago, Norman was forced to stay stationed on one side of the field as Antonio Brown went wild on the opposite side.
Still, the Redskins lost due to a game-winning touchdown scored by their former running back, Alfred Morris. That loss was sealed when Cousins’ final pass of the game flew out of the back of the end zone.
Washington is now 0-2 on the season with a big trip to New York to face the Giants scheduled for next week.
