Redskins TE Niles Paul out for season with a dislocated ankle

PFT - [Full Article]

The Redskins lost tight end Niles Paul to injury late in the first quarter. He was carted off with a left leg injury after being rolled up on by Browns linebacker Craig Robertson. Trainers immediately placed an air cast on Paul.

Update: Per Ian Rapoport, Paul suffered a dislocated ankle. He will undergo an MRI to see if the ligaments are intact.

Update: Paul is out for the season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jordan Reed should retake his starting spot. When healthy, Reed has averaged 10.5 fantasy points in PPR formats over the past two seasons. This extrapolates to low-end TE1 numbers and he's certainly a worthy start when he's healthy enough to play. Heading into camp, he said his knee feels great after an offseason stem cell treatment. His ADP is currently in the 13th/14th round, so he's a low risk pick.
