Redskins TE Logan Paulsen limited

October, 10, 2013
ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins tight end Logan Paulsen was limited again in practice because of a sprained MCL in his left knee. But he remains “cautiously optimistic” about playing Sunday at Dallas.

If Paulsen can’t play, it would take away the Redskins’ best blocking tight end, which could impact the outside zone game Washington likes to use. Veteran Fred Davis has improved as a blocker over the years, but is more of a pass-catcher. Rookie tight end Jordan Reed is more of a pass-catcher as well and still learning to be a consistent blocker in the NFL.

Paulsen hurt his knee in the win at Oakland before last week’s bye.

Meanwhile, linebacker Brandon Jenkins (ankle) was limited. Reserve nose tackle Chris Neild (calf) did not practice.

For Dallas, running back Lance Dunbar (hamstring), linebacker Justin Durant (groin) and defensive end Edgar Jones (groin) did not practice. Receiver Dwayne Harris (hip) and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher (neck) were limited.
