Paul (shoulder) feels 100 percent healthy again and is expected to participate in the Redskins' offseason practices, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul is four months removed from having surgery to repair a torn labrum and dislocated left shoulder. While he still hasn't been cleared as a precaution, the 27-year-old says he's feeling fully healthy and should be ready for offseason practice sessions. After totaling career highs of 39 catches for 507 yards in 2014, Paul has played merely eight games since then due to injuries.

Paul (shoulder) is progressing ahead of schedule after undergoing shoulder surgery in November, Jake Kring-Schreifeis of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran tight end said of his progress, "My progression is crazy and I'm in the weight room doing things I'm not supposed to be doing. I was doing pushups two months out and they couldn't believe that. I'm just trying to get right and to be mentally healthy for next season." Paul has only played in eight games the past two seasons due to various injuries but will look to put all that behind him in 2017. He is under contract for one more season and will look to compete with Jordan Reed, Derek Carrier, and others for reps once healthy.

Paul revealed he underwent successful shoulder surgery Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Paul's season ended when he was placed on injured reserve last week, although he was never much of a fantasy contributor in 2016 considering he only garnered two targets across eight games. Now known that the procedure required to heal his shoulder was a success, Paul figures to come back in full form for the 2017 campaign.

Paul (shoulder) has been placed on injured reserve, ESPN's John Keim reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul got hurt during Washington's Week 8 tie with the Bengals and coach Jay Gruden clarified Monday that its a labrum issue he's dealing with. While him landing on IR leaves the Redskins without a tight end for the time being, teammate Derek Carrier's (knee) return to practice Monday represents a possible replacement before long.

Paul injured his shoulder during Sunday's game against the Bengals and is considered questionable to return.

EDGE Analysis

Paul appears to have avoided any kind of serious injury, while Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis will continue to be the top two options at tight end for the Redskins.

Paul was active but saw just six offensive snaps in Week 1.

EDGE Analysis

Paul saw the majority of his work come on special teams after not seeing a single target. As the No. 3 tight end in Washington, it seems unlikely that he has any fantasy value unless injuries force the team to play him more.

Paul (knee) should practice in the near future, the Redskins' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul suffered a dislocated ankle precisely one year ago during preseason action, and his rehabilitation extended into the offseason. After opening training camp with the Redskins, he suffered a hyperextended right knee in Thursday's preseason defeat in Atlanta, according to the Washington Post. However, a lengthy absence doesn't appear to be a side effect of the current concern.

Paul is treading a fine line as he recovers from a dislocated left ankle, combining weight work and cardio at Washington's facility, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul entered training camp last summer as the No. 1 tight end in Washington, only to sustain a season-ending ankle injury in the first preseason game. The stars were aligned for Jordan Reed's breakout campaign following Logan Paulsen's (toe) placement on injured reserve within a week of Paul's malady. Further straining his standing within the TE corps was the recent acquisition of Vernon Davis, but Paul's ability to log snaps at an open position (fullback) should help him find a place in the offense next season.

Head coach Jay Gruden said at the recent NFL owners meetings that Paul (ankle) may not be healthy until training camp, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul dislocated his left ankle during the 2015 preseason, ending his fifth campaign before it could commence. Gruden relayed that Paul must build up strength in the ankle while simultaneously regaining the weight lost over he course of rehabilitation, which could hold the tight end out of the entire offseason program. If he's a part of the 53-man roster out of training camp, he'll play second or third fiddle, at best, to starting TE Jordan Reed.

The Redskins re-signed Paul to a three-year contract worth nearly $10 million, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

With oft-injured starter Jordan Reed limited to 11 games in 2014, Paul turned in a handful of solid performances. The former Cornhusker isn't much of a run blocker and only stands 6-1, but he offers a nice combination of hands and route-running. However, Paul will probably have a limited role, so long as Reed stays healthy.
