Report: Greg Olsen to miss 6 weeks
Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen broke his foot yesterday against the Bills. Olsen was running a pattern and came up lame with the non-contact injury. He did not return to the game and is seeing a foot specialist today.
Via Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer, the injury is expected to keep Olsen out somewhere in the six-to-eight-week range. That makes going on injured reserve a possibility, which would allow him to return to practice after six weeks and the active roster two weeks later.
“You’re tormented when something like that happens,” Panthers quarterback Cam Newtonafter the game. “The optimism is, we’re still going to have him at some point this year.”
The Panthers passing game has struggled this year with Cam seemingly still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery—losing his No.1 target will not help matters. But if there is a silver lining…this Panthers team is 2-0.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/report-greg-olsen-to-miss-6-weeks/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/greg-olsen-091717-usnews-getty-ftr_1bbprgqsjqe291ukt0jeg6ofz3.jpg?fit=960%2C540&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/greg-olsen-091717-usnews-getty-ftr_1bbprgqsjqe291ukt0jeg6ofz3.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Carolina PanthersFantasyNFC SouthNFLRecent PostsCarolina Panthers,Fantasy Football,Greg Olsen,NFLCarolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen broke his foot yesterday against the Bills.
