Contrary to an initial prognosis, Jesuit QB/WR Aaron Paulsen has a torn right ACL and will undergo what is almost certain to be season-ending surgery in two weeks, coach James Harrell said Wednesday evening.

Paulsen, injured while blocking on a pass play in the second quarter of Friday's 21-7 triumph at Robinson, told the Times on Monday that an MRI he received that morning revealed only a couple of bone bruises and some fluid buildup in the knee. 

Harrell, however, said Paulsen initially was misinformed. He later was seen by Dr. Roger Brainard, the Tigers' longtime orthopaedic surgeon, who advised the 5-foot-9 senior of the need for surgery after reading the MRI.

A receiver last season who started Jesuit's first two games at quarterback, Paulsen had seven catches for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Tigers' first two games. He had no catches before being hurt Friday.
