The Buffalo Bills are adding another body back to the active roster on Tuesday as cornerback Josh Norman has been activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Along with cornerback Levi Wallace, safety Dean Marlowe and tight end Tyler Kroft, Norman was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, Nov. 14 after he tested positive for the coronavirus. Wallace, Marlowe and Kroft were deemed to be close contacts of Norman, and all four players were forced to miss the next day's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The trio of Norman, Marlowe and Kroft were all activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 on Thursday.

The 32-year-old has only appeared in three games for the Bills this season as he dealt with a nagging hamstring injury earlier in the year. He has put up 18 tackles in those three games, while also registering two passes defended, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

The addition of Norman back to the roster means the Bills now have 52 of the maximum 53 roster spots accounted for. Cornerback Cam Lewis and linebacker Tyrel Dodson are both eligible to come off of Injured Reserve list this week, while linebacker Matt Milano is eligible to be activated from I.R. next week.
