Paul (shoulder) feels 100 percent healthy again and is expected to participate in the Redskins' offseason practices, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports. Paul is four months removed from having surgery to repair a torn labrum and dislocated left shoulder. While he still hasn't been cleared as a precaution, the 27-year-old says he's feeling fully healthy and should be ready for offseason practice sessions. After totaling career highs of 39 catches for 507 yards in 2014, Paul has played merely eight games since then due to injuries.
Paul (shoulder) is progressing ahead of schedule after undergoing shoulder surgery in November, Jake Kring-Schreifeis of the team's official site reports. The veteran tight end said of his progress, "My progression is crazy and I'm in the weight room doing things I'm not supposed to be doing. I was doing pushups two months out and they couldn't believe that. I'm just trying to get right and to be mentally healthy for next season." Paul has only played in eight games the past two seasons due to various injuries but will look to put all that behind him in 2017. He is under contract for one more season and will look to compete with Jordan Reed, Derek Carrier, and others for reps once healthy.
Paul revealed he underwent successful shoulder surgery Friday. Paul's season ended when he was placed on injured reserve last week, although he was never much of a fantasy contributor in 2016 considering he only garnered two targets across eight games. Now known that the procedure required to heal his shoulder was a success, Paul figures to come back in full form for the 2017 campaign.
Paul (shoulder) has been placed on injured reserve, ESPN's John Keim reports. Paul got hurt during Washington's Week 8 tie with the Bengals and coach Jay Gruden clarified Monday that its a labrum issue he's dealing with. While him landing on IR leaves the Redskins without a tight end for the time being, teammate Derek Carrier's (knee) return to practice Monday represents a possible replacement before long.
Paul injured his shoulder during Sunday's game against the Bengals and is considered questionable to return. Paul appears to have avoided any kind of serious injury, while Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis will continue to be the top two options at tight end for the Redskins.
