Norris leaves game with jaw injury, X-rays negative

OAKLAND -- A's catcher Derek Norris left Wednesday's game after being hit in the jaw with a foul tip in the seventh inning. X-rays were negative, but Norris was talking carefully after the game so as not to move his jaw too much.

He was asked if he felt he'd be available for Friday's road trip opener at Tampa Bay.

"Nothing's broken," he said. "I'll be ready."
