    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul appears to have bulked up this offseason as the Redskins started organized team activities this week. Paul gained at least 20 pounds last offseason but lost all of that weight while sitting out due to his ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Paul was a wide receiver in college and even returned kicks early in his NFL career, so staying bulked up has been an issue. He'll need to stay healthy and keep the weight on to thrive in his role as Jordan Reed's backup.

    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (ankle) likely will not be able to participate until training camp. Paul needs to regain strength in his ankle and also needs to add some weight. Paul could see time at fullback if the team decides to keep four tight ends on the final roster.

    Huddle Up: Paul has performed well when given the opportunity, and given Jordan Reed's injury history the Redskins would do well to keep additional tight ends on the roster. However, his fantasy value at this juncture is primarily as a Reed handcuff on a larger roster.

    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (ankle) and TE Logan Paulsen (toe) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Sunday, Aug. 16. Meanwhile, the team signed undrafted free agent Ernst Brun (Iowa State).

    Huddle Up: Another move or two could be in the offing, but in the meantime, Washington is counting on Jordan Reed more than ever. That, of course, is a risky proposition -- reality and fantasy -- as Reed has missed 12 of a possible 32 career regular-season games and has been hampered by a hamstring issue that caused him to miss the preseason opener and is threatening to keep him out of their contest as well.

    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (ankle) will need surgery to repair a fractured ankle and will miss the entire season, head coach Jay Gruden said Thursday, Aug. 13.

    Huddle Up: Paul was the backup plan if--when--Jordan Reed sustains his next injury. The Redskins love to throw to the tight end, but they're running out of warm bodies to fill the position.

    Updating a previous story, Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul suffered a dislocated ankle Thursday, Aug. 13 and required an air case, according to a source. Paul will undergo an MRI to see if the ligaments are intact.

    Huddle Up: Awful tough turn of events for Paul, who had been having a strong preseason and was listed as the starting tight end on the team's first depth chart of the preseason. Now, his season is in jeopardy, leaving Washington dangerously short on TEs at the moment with Jordan Reed and Logan Paulsen sitting out Thursday's game.

    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul's MRI on his injured shoulder was clear, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Paul, who's somewhat surprisingly listed atop the first D.C. TE depth chart, left practice early Monday with the injury, but it sounds like he'll be fine as he tries to hold off Jordan Reed and Logan Paulsen for the team's starting gig.

  • Posted: 8/10/2015 11:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Niles Paul added around 27 pounds this offseason in order to be a better blocker against some of the bigger defensive ends in the NFL. Paul also worked on Olympic-style weightlifting, which helps with lower-body explosiveness. He is listed as the starting tight end on the team's depth chart released Monday, Aug. 10.

    Huddle Up: Paul started seven games last season and finished with a career-high 39 receptions for 507 yards and a TD. He's currently running ahead of the more heralded (and injury-prone) Jordan Reed, but let's see if he can hold on to the gig this preseason.
