Panthers' Greg Olsen: Looking to rest a few weeks
Olsen (foot) plans to rest for a few weeks then play the rest of the season, and he's optimistic he can avoid surgery until after the year, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
This leaves a loose timeline, as he still needs to wait for his fractured foot to at least partially heal. However, the Panthers won't place him on injured reserve, which should be seen as good news for Olsen and Cam Newton owners alike. In his absence, rookie fourth-round pick Ian Thomas is expected to start at tight end. Devin Funchess averaged an extra 1.8 targets per game when Olsen didn't play last season, so the 6-foot-5 wideout could also see a modest uptick in opportunity.
