Norwood playing through pain

Running back Jerious Norwood may have to make another start for Michael Turner on Sunday. He has struggled since returning from his right hip flexor.

He's played in the last two games after missing five straight.

"As the weeks have gone on, it's gotten better each week," Norwood said of his hip. "I've got to continue to get treatment. It's sore. There is a lot of soreness, so I have to fight through that."

Norwood had six carries for 22 yards against Tampa Bay and 11 carries for 18 yards against Philadelphia. On the season, he's had 36 carries for 118 yards for 3.3 per carry, which is well below the 5.8 career average he had before this season.
