Redskins HC Jay Gruden announced Saturday that TE Logan Paulsen will undergo surgery next week for a turf toe injury and will subsequently miss the entire 2015 season.
This news comes just a few days after the team lost fellow TE Niles Paul for the year with a dislocated and fractured ankle.
Washington is in major need of tight end help, even before the news that Paulsen was done for the year, but there really aren’t any solid options available.
Paulsen, 28, is in the final year of his three-year, $4 million contract that included a $1.1 million signing bonus. He stands to make a base salary of $1.1 million in 2015 before becoming an unrestricted free agent next year.
In 2014, Paulsen appeared in all 16 games for the Redskins and caught 13 passes for 78 yards receiving and a touchdown.
