Coach Jay Gruden says after practice at training camp Saturday that Paulsen will have the operation on Monday.
Gruden says Washington will work out a couple of possible additions at tight end.
Gruden also says running back Silas Redd will miss the season with torn knee ligaments. Redd got hurt against Cleveland.
The value of Jordan Reed continues to grow. We'll keep you updated on whom the team signs as they would just be an injury away from starting if something happens to Reed, who has also struggled to stay healthy. The injury to Redd at the RB position may be good news for Chris Thompson who seemed like he was on the roster bubble. Thompson should now be behind Alfred Morris and Matt Jones on the RB depth chart.
