After just 10 defensive snaps against the Dallas Cowboys, Stephen Paea exited the game and never returned.

Paea will be out of the lineup with a Grade 2 plantar plate injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

"He had a similar (injury) in Chicago and it was a couple of weeks," Gruden told CSN-Washington's Tarik El-Bashir. "I would expect him to at least miss one or two weeks, minimum."
