Redskins TE Logan Paulsen (turf toe) will undergo surgery Monday, and is out for the season.

This was expected after Paulsen visited with Dr. Robert Anderson this week. With Niles Paul on I.R. and Jordan Reed (hamstring) sidelined, the Redskins could add a free-agent tight end. Fred Davis and Zach Miller are among the veteran options available. Washington could also consider bringing back Chris Cooley.

Redskins TE Logan Paulsen is battling plantar fasciitis.

Paulsen briefly had to leave the Week 9 loss at Minnesota due to the injury, but was able to return. The in-line blocking complement to Jordan Reed/Niles Paul has nine catches on the season.

Logan Paulsen caught 3-of-3 targets for 28 yards in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants, also losing a fumble.

Paulsen's cough up came two plays after the Redskins lost Niles Paul to a concussion. Paulsen will get the start in Week 5 against the Seahawks if neither Paul nor Jordan Reed (hamstring) can go. He won't be on the TE2 radar.

Logan Paulsen caught four passes for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Giants.

Forced into a pass-catching role following Jordan Reed's concussion issues, Paulsen caught 28 passes for 267 yards with three touchdowns. The plodder will be back next year as an in-line, blocking complement to the explosive Reed.

Starting in place of Jordan Reed (concussion), Logan Paulsen caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Paulsen's line was nearly identical to his Week 13 numbers. He'll remain a low-end TE2 if Reed is unable to return for Week 15.

Logan Paulsen had three catches for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 13 loss to the Giants.

Paulsen started again this week with Jordan Reed (concussion) sidelined, but played behind Fred Davis with the Redskins' running their no-huddle offense to open the game. His touchdown came on a 19-yard strike from Robert Griffin in the second quarter and he finished with four targets. Even if Reed doesn't return in Week 14, Paulsen won't be on the TE2 radar.

Logan Paulsen did not catch a pass in Sunday's Week 11 loss at Philadelphia.

Even with Jordan Reed (concussion) sidelined for the entire second half, Paulsen saw a mere three targets. Fred Davis is Reed's backup at the move tight end spot.

Backup Redskins TE Logan Paulsen caught two passes for three yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 10 loss to the Vikings.

Left completely uncovered as the Redskins went with play action on a 3rd-and-1 from the Vikings' one-yard line with time running out in the first half, Paulsen scored his first touchdown of the season. It will quite likely be his last. Paulsen has 13 catches in nine games.
Fri, Nov 8, 2013 12:54:00 AM

Logan Paulsen caught three passes for nine yards in Sunday's Week 9 overtime win over the Chargers.

Paulsen is the blocking complement to Jordan Reed. The three catches are the most he's had since sustaining a mildly sprained MCL on Sept. 29.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 06:18:00 PM

Redskins TE Logan Paulsen has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL.

Washington is entering a Week 5 bye. The Skins won't miss him as long as Jordan Reed (quad) and Fred Davis (ankle) heal up.

Redskins TE Logan Paulsen sustained a knee injury in Sunday's win at Oakland.

Paulsen, who started because of injuries to Jordan Reed (thigh) and Fred Davis (ankle), left the stadium wearing a brace. The next man up is Niles Paul. The good news for the Skins is that they have a bye in Week 5, giving their tight end room a chance to heal up.
Mon, Sep 30, 2013 10:59:00 AM

Redskins TE Logan Paulsen caught two passes for 46 yards in Washington's Week 4 win over Oakland.

He also lost a fumble. Paulsen played a larger role than usual because Jordan Reed (groin) was inactive and Fred Davis (ankle) was hobbled, seeing only one target. Paulsen will likely resume blocking-specialist duties when Washington emerges from its Week 5 open date.
Sun, Sep 29, 2013 07:52:00 PM

Redskins re-signed TE Logan Paulsen to a three-year contract with a max value of $7 million and a $1.1 million signing bonus.

Paulsen, 26, caught 25 passes for 308 yards and one touchdown in 16 games last season, starting ten after Fred Davis' Achilles' tear. Not much of a receiving threat, Paulsen is purely a possession target but excels in the run game, grading out as a top-ten run-blocking tight end according to Pro Football Focus. The re-signing of Paulsen should not impact negotiations with free agent Davis.
