Paul (knee) was waived off injured reserve by the Jaguars on Friday. Paul has been on injured reserve since suffering an MCL sprain in mid-October. The 29-year-old signed a two-year, $4.75 million deal with the Jaguars in March and had 10 receptions for 98 yards over six games before the MCL sprain. Paul will have to clear waivers before becoming a free agent, when he would then be eligible to sign with any team if healthy.
Paul (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Paul suffered a sprained MCL in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, and the Jaguars take another big hit to the tight end position. Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core-muscle injury) was also placed on injured reserve just a few days ago. In Paul's absence Sunday, James O'Shaughnessy ended up playing 75 percent of the team's offensive snaps and caught three passes for 29 yards. O'Shaughnessy is now in line to be the team's starting tight end moving forward, and the Jaguars signed tight end Blake Bell on Tuesday to shore up their depth at the position.
Paul (knee) is believed to have suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cowboys and is expected to miss time due to the injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Jacksonville was counting on Paul to take on an enhanced role after starting tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core-muscle injury) was placed on injured reserve a few days earlier, but the 29-year-old started and played just three offensive snaps before exiting with the knee issue. Paul's absence for most of the game paved the way for James O'Shaughnessy to play 75 percent of the offensive snaps at tight end, with the latter finishing with three receptions for 29 yards on four targets. While Paul's injury seems unlikely to end his season, the Jaguars will have a better idea regarding how long he might be sidelined after the results of his MRI become available. Expect O'Shaughnessy to enter the starting lineup for at least Week 7 against the Texans while Paul is on the mend.
Paul (knee) exited Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a knee injury, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site With Paul -- who caught seven of nine targets for 65 yards in Week 5 -- hobbled, James O'Shaughnessy and David Grinnage are now the only healthy tight ends the Jaguars have available Sunday.
Paul (hamstring) is participating in Thursday's practice, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports. Paul was held out of practice both Tuesday and Wednesday with what is now being reported as a hamstring injury, but it looks like it was minor. Paul, if healthy, is expected to operate as the Jaguars' No. 2 tight end this season behind Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
