Redskins TE Paul out for season


The Sports Xchange

Washington Redskins tight end Niles Paul is expected to miss the season with a fractured and dislocated ankle, coach Jay Gruden said Friday.

Paul hurt his left ankle during the first quarter of the preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. The ankle was placed in an air cast before he left the field on a cart.

Paul was named the starting tight end earlier this week.

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 surgery.

The Redskins also lost reserve running back Silas Redd, who reportedly suffered a torn ACL and partially torn MCL in his right knee in the third quarter Thursday.
