The NFL preseason is a great time for unheralded players to make the case for playing time in the regular season and, unfortunately, for established players to risk injuries. The injury gods have claimed their first victim tonight, and it’s Washington starting tight end Niles Paul. Paul’s ankle bent at a pretty extreme angle tonight after Craig Robertson crashed into him. There has been no word as to the severity of the injury yet, but it looks real bad.
Update (11:22 p.m.): Paul is officially out for the season.
