Removed wallpaper and part of drywall, how to fix before painting

We have removed the wallpaper in our bathroom the same way as in other areas in our home, this time however, after using the roller that puts holes in the wallpaper and the wallpaper remover, the removal of wallpaper included part of the paper from the drywall. We are now down to the brown paper on the drywall and some areas of mud placed over the nails, joints, etc. What do I do now before painting? If I fill in these areas with joint compound, I will basically be recovering the walls with mud. Do you recommend doing this or sanding it smooth and covering with a textured paint? Please advise, I would like to have this complete by Thanksgiving.
God bless,
Stephanie
