The Sports Xchange

Washington Redskins starting tight end Niles Paul dislocated his left ankle during the first quarter of Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns.

Paul was taken off the field on a cart after suffering the injury and was to undergo an MRI to identify the extent of the damage. The ankle was placed in an air cast before he left the field.

There was no immediate word on how long Paul might be sidelined.

The Redskins are plagued by injuries at tight end. Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Logan Paulsen (toe) are running behind Paul, but both are unable to play. Paulsen’s toe injury might need surgury.
