San Francisco 49ers cornerback Josh Norman returned to the team facility on Monday for a team meeting.

The 33-year-old suffered a chest injury that was later confirmed to be a lung contusion during Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Norman made a critical tackle in that game when he stopped Packers’ Aaron Jones on a third-and-four and forced a fumble.

He took a helmet to the chest and spent Sunday night in the hospital, according to Mike Garafalo of the NFL Network.

San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan shared the latest condition on Norman.

“There’s a possibility [he could play this week],” Shanahan told reporters. “The way that goes, he has got to clear some imaging, he’s got to pass the CT scans to get back to practice. From what I’m told, that could take anywhere from one day to throughout the week, so we’re just going to have to keep monitoring that each day as the week goes.”

The 49ers resume practice on Wednesday from the SAP Performance Facility ahead of their upcoming game against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4.
