Paul (concussion) is expected to play in Week 5 after being cleared for full practice participation Friday, Oct. 3.

Week 9: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The big question this week is whether Robert Griffin III will get back in the saddle prior to Washington's Week 10 bye, or if the coaching staff lets Colt McCoy lead the charge at Minnesota this week. With a big 'W' under McCoy's belt on Monday Night Football (and a lost season for Washington at 3-5 in the NFC East at the half-way point), we expect to see McCoy appear again in Minnesota this weekend. He played a solid game in Dallas, posting 25/30 for 299 yards, zero TDs and one interception, with three sacks taken for -13 yards, and 7/16/1 rushing. The top Washington receivers were McCoy's main targets, with seven targets for 6/136/0 receiving for DeSean Jackson, four for 4/47/0 flowing to Pierre Garcon, and seven for 7/40/0 going to Jordan Reed. McCoy got the ball to the Washington playmakers. The Minnesota pass D is ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 212.1 net passing yards allowed per game, with 13 passing TDs given up vs. seven interceptions and 25 sacks generated (13th-ranked (tie) and tied for second in the NFL, respectively). Mike Glennon was sacked five times for -12 yards with one passing TD, one interception thrown. The Bills gave up six sacks of Kyle Orton for -28 yards, but he still posted 31/43 for 255 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown vs. the Vikings two games ago. This looks like a tough matchup for McCoy and company, on the road at Minnesota.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Niles Paul took a back seat to a finally healthy Jordan Reed in the game, catching only one pass on two targets. The pass was a fairly important one, however, as Paul converted a fourth and 1 in the second quarter to keep a Washington drive alive that would lead to a field goal. Paul was Washington's #2 receiver heading into the game.

2014 Week 7 vs TEN (2 / 2 / 58 / 0 rec)

Niles Paul had a huge catch and run to start the game off, taking an intermediate pass from Cousins and breaking multiple poor tackles upfield for 50 yards. He was only targeted on more time on the game, catching a short pass and turning upfield for an 8 yard gain. Paul is the the clear backup to Jordan Reed when healthy.

2014 Week 8 vs DAL (3 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Niles Paul began the game with a bang, catching a 20 yard pass on McCoy's first dropback. Paul caught all three of his targets, but failed to make much of an impact, giving way to a healthier Jordan Reed down the stretch.
