  • Panthers' Greg Olsen: Lands on injured reserve
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Panthers placed Olsen (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports. "He broke the fifth metatarsal on his right foot -- it's called a Jones fracture," head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said. "He had a screw inserted to repair the fracture." With the nature of the injury known, Olsen will follow the typical 6-to-8-week recovery timetable, which conveniently lines up with the dates for a return to practice (six weeks) and activation from IR (eight). He'll thus be eligible to play again after the Panthers' Week 11 bye, or Sunday, Nov. 26, against the Jets on the road. In the meantime, Ed Dickson will receive the bulk of the tight end reps, but the team is also a candidate to add another body to the 53-man roster to bolster the ranks.

  • Olsen (foot) will undergo surgery and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. This was the expected outcome and timeline as soon as Olsen confirmed that he suffered a broken foot. He may be placed on injured reserve, with the expectation of a return at some point in November or December. Olsen's lengthy absence leaves Ed Dickson as the top tight end in Carolina, though the team's wideouts and running backs will probably be the more relevant beneficiaries in terms of taking on additional touches and targets.

  • Panthers' Greg Olsen: Likely out 6-8 weeks
    By RotoWire Staff

    Olsen (foot) likely will be out for 6-8 weeks, though the timeline could change with further evaluation, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Olsen should have a better idea of his timeline after visiting with Dr. Robert Anderson on Monday. The tight end already acknowledged that he has a broken foot and will miss quite a few games, but he didn't put a number to the estimate. The expected timetable makes him a candidate to land on injured reserve and return later in the season, while Ed Dickson is left as Carolina's top tight end indefinitely. Olsen hasn't missed a game since sitting out Weeks 1 and 2 of his rookie season (2007).

  • Olsen expects to miss time due to the broken right foot suffered Sunday against the Bills, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. "I am going to miss a lot of games," Olsen said. Olsen was accompanied by crutches and a walking boot on the sideline throughout the second half of the Panthers' Week 2 contest. In a post-game presser, he revealed the fracture, but his prognosis will be clarified after an evaluation Monday with Dr. Robert Anderson. With his consecutive game streak of 81 about to end, Olsen will give way to Ed Dickson at tight end for the foreseeable future.

  • Panthers' Greg Olsen: Breaks foot Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Olsen suffered a fractured foot during Sunday's 9-3 win against the Bills, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports. "I broke my foot," Olsen admitted in a post-game press conference. "It's tough. It sucks." Olsen departed the game in the second quarter and was initially considered probable to return due to a right foot injury. After halftime came and went, though, he eventually reemerged on the sideline on crutches with the foot in a walking boot. Prior to Olsen's declaration, head coach Ron Rivera said the tight end will undergo an evaluation Monday with Dr. Robert Anderson to determine the extent of the ailment, per David Newton of ESPN.com. With the knowledge of a broken foot, Olsen is likely poised for a multi-week absence, at least, during which Ed Dickson would assume top TE duties.
