Redskins' Logan Paulsen needs surgery, out for year
Saturday August 15th, 2015

Washington Redskins tight end Logan Paulsen and running back Silas Redd Jr. are out for the season, the team announced Saturday. 

Paulsen will undergo surgery Monday due to turf toe on his right foot. He suffered the injury during practice on Aug. 6.

He is the second Redskins tight end to be ruled out for the season. Niles Paul, the projected starter at the position, is out for the year after fracturing his ankle during Washington's first preseason game. 

In his career, Paulsen has 79 catches for 801 yards in 75 games.
