Silas Redd Jr., Logan Paulsen Out For Year

Posted Aug 15, 2015

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden on Saturday confirmed that running back Silas Redd Jr. (torn ACL/MCL) and tight end Logan Paulsen (turf toe) are out for the season.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden on Saturday confirmed that running back Silas Redd Jr. (torn ACL/MCL) and tight end Logan Paulsen (turf toe) are out for the season.

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden on Saturday confirmed that running back Silas Redd Jr. will miss the 2015 season after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee.

Redd Jr., a second-year back, suffered the injury with about 12 minutes to go while being tackled during a run in the third quarter of Thursday’s 2015 preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns.

“It's very unfortunate for Silas,” Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said. “He was having a good camp and making good progress.”

Redd Jr. was the second member of the Redskins’ offense to suffer a season-ending injury in Thursday’s game at FirstEnergy Stadium, joining tight end Niles Paul, who broke his left ankle while blocking for running back Chris Thompson.

After the game, Redd, a USC product, told reporters he’s “never been through something like this,” but wants to be sure to put the scope of the injury in perspective.

“It’s frustrating, but God gives his hardest battles to the strongest soldiers,” said Redd Jr., who made the 53-man roster last season as an undrafted rookie. “ Just another obstacle and I’ll get through it.”

Redd Jr. said he immediately realized the severity of his injury, but was touched when his teammates rallied around him as he was being tended to by team trainers.

“I got my boo-hoo and my tears out before the team came in,” he said. “I didn’t want those guys to see me like that.

“Just got to stay positive, man,” Redd Jr. continued. “I’m not dead, I’m breathing, so it’s all good.”

Redd Jr.’s injury likely gives rookie running backs Trey Williams and Mack Brown added opportunities to showcase their abilities for the remainder of the preseason.

Williams, who went undrafted out of Texas A&M, carried the ball seven times for 15 yards and scored his first professional touchdown Thursday vs. the Browns, while Brown, who went undrafted out of Florida, had five carries for 8 yards.

Paulsen undergoing surgery
Gruden on Saturday also confirmed Saturday that tight end Logan Paulsen will undergo surgery Monday on his big right toe, bringing his season to a premature end.

Paulsen, who suffered the injury during practice Aug. 6, last week flew to Charlotte, N.C., to be examined by specialist Dr. Robert Anderson.

The sixth-year veteran out of UCLA is the team’s top blocking tight end, but at 6-foot-5, 261 pounds, Paulsen has also showed the ability to make plays with the ball in his hand. He enters the 2015 season with 75 career regular-season games (42 starts) to his credit with the Redskins , and has compiled 79 career receptions for 801 yards (10.1 avg.) and six touchdowns through the 2014 season

With both Paul and Paulsen out for an extended period of time – and with Jordan Reed battling hamstring issues – the Redskins find themselves thin at the tight end position, both in numbers and in experience.

Remaining on the depth chart beyond Paul, Reed and Paulsen are first-year tight ends Je’Ron Hamm and Chase Dixon and rookie Devin Mahina.

Of those three tight ends, only Dixon had a reception in Thursday’s preseason opener, a 17-yard play from quarterback Colt McCoy late in the third quarter. Hamm, meanwhile, left the game and did not return after being poked in the eye in the first half.
