Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman made his first appearance on the field since Week 12 on Sunday when his team took on the Philadelphia Eagles.

Norman, who was on the wrong end of a Carson Wentz key touchdown pass to Greg Ward Jr., spoke to reporters about his benching for the first time, as ESPN noted.

“I don’t think I’ve spoken in a long time just because I want to be prepared and everything, but I’ve been built up strong,” Norman said. “This has made me stronger. I will rise again for it, because that’s who I am.”

Norman, who’s had one interception this season and four in his last 42 games, was asked whether he still considered himself an elite cornerback.

“I don’t believe anything,” he said.

“I am. When you are something, you don’t believe it, you go out and do it. Sucks that I can’t prove it right now, but formalities and situations, you’ve got to play the cards you’re dealt. That’s what it is. I was dealt a hand right now, and I’ve got to play it.”

Washington made Norman the highest-paid cornerback in 2016 when the team signed him to a five-year, $75 million contract.
