  • Panthers' Greg Olsen: Plays 59 snaps
    By RotoWire Staff

    Olsen played 59 of 64 offensive snaps, but failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Vikings. Olsen's activity level is certainly encouraging, as it seems his foot injury didn't prevent him from filling his usual role. Going against a sticky Vikings secondary, however, the tight end was unable to get involved in the passing game. As long as he avoids any setbacks, Olsen will hope this Sunday's game versus the Packers allows him to play and produce at his established level.

  • Panthers' Greg Olsen: Hoping to expand role
    By RotoWire Staff

    Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the team wants to work Olsen back into the passing game in the coming weeks, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Olsen appeared to play most of the offensive snaps in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Vikings, though he did limp off the field at one point after another player appeared to roll on his surgically repaired foot. He only missed a few snaps before rejoining the game, ultimately finishing without a catch on one target. Olsen's practice participation should still be monitored closely as the Panthers prepare for a Week 15 home game against the Packers.

  • Panthers' Greg Olsen: Returns Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Olsen (foot) is listed as active Sunday against the Vikings. Upon his activation from IR two weeks ago, Olsen aggravated his right foot and was subsequently held out last Sunday in order to avoid the Superdome turf in New Orleans. After turning in full sessions this week, he was tabbed with a questionable designation, but there wasn't much doubt he'd play on Carolina's grass surface Sunday. While head coach Ron Rivera doesn't expect Olsen's workload to be impacted too much, he faces a stingy Minnesota defense that has allowed just 5.8 YPT and three touchdowns to tight ends this season.

  • Panthers' Greg Olsen: Expected to play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Olsen (foot), who is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, is expected to play, a source informed Adam Schefter of ESPN. Despite being listed as a full participant at practice all week, Olsen wasn't able to avoid an injury designation for Week 14. The Panthers likely deemed Olsen as questionable as a safeguard in the event of a setback with his surgically repaired right foot prior to the 1 p.m. EST kickoff, but if he makes it through warmups no worse for the wear, he should be in store for a full load of snaps Sunday.

  • Olsen (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official website reports. A full practice participant throughout the week, Olsen is on track for Sunday's game, with Panthers head coach Ron Rivera even saying that the tight end won't face any limitations with his snap count. That doesn't necessarily mean Olsen will handle a three-down role, but he at least should be on the field for most of the passing plays so long as he avoids another setback with his surgically repaired foot. Given the nature of his injury, it still wouldn't be a bad idea to check back on Olsen's status after the Panthers release their inactive list at approximately 11:30 a.m. EST on Sunday. Assuming he's not on that list, Olsen will face a Minnesota defense that has held tight ends to a feeble mark of 5.8 yards per target this season with only three touchdowns in 12 games.
