The Washington Redskins endured a scare during Monday's practice when projected starting tight end Niles Paul left practice with a shoulder injury. According to sources, ESPN's John Keim reports that Paul will be fine and he did not suffer any damage to his shoulder.
Paul got in individual work during Tuesday's practice, and there is still a chance that he suits up as the starting tight end during the Redskins' preseason opener on Thursday night. After adding 10 pounds of muscle and showing improved blocking skills during spring practices, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden named Paul his starter over Jordan Reed earlier this week.
