  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Active Monday

    Olszewski (ankle) will be available for Monday's game against the Bills.

    Olszewski was limited at practice all week before drawing a questionable designation. Look for him to take on his usual role providing depth at wide receiver assuming he avoids any setbacks.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Questionable against Bills

    Olszewski (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against Buffalo, Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Olszewski landed on the injury report to begin the week and has logged three consecutive limited practices. That leaves him questionable for Monday, and his potential absence would leave a key void in both New England's kick and punt return game.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Picks up ankle issue

    Olszewski (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday.

    Olszewski began the week on the injury report and has logged two limited practices since. That will give him the opportunity to suit up Monday against the Bills, though there should be more clarity come the team's final practice Saturday.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Cleared for Thursday

    Olszewksi (concussion) was not listed on the Patriots' injury report ahead of Thursday's contest against the Falcons.

    After not practicing Monday and only being a limited participant Tuesday, Olszewksi was not listed on Wednesday's injury report. The 24-year-old missed Sunday's contest against the Browns with a concussion, but he looks to be back for Thursday night's game. The 2019 undrafted free agent will continue to be utilized more on special teams than in the offensive gameplan.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Won't play against Browns

    Olszewski (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns.

    With Olszewski sidelined, J.J. Taylor will likely take over as the return man on punts and kickoffs. Taylor could see a more prominent role in the Patriots backfield as well, as starting running back Damien Harris has also been ruled out due to a concussion.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Listed as questionable

    Olszewski (concussion) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus Cleveland.

    Olszewski remains in concussion protocol and will need to clear it before kickoff Sunday in order to suit up. If he ends up being unable to play, J.J. Taylor would presumably be next in line to handle return duties for the Pats.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Suffers concussion

    Olszewski has been diagnosed with a concussion, per the Patriots' official site.

    Olszewski was unable to return to Sunday's game against the Panthers due to a head injury, and he was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday after being diagnosed with a concussion. If he hopes to play Sunday against the Browns, he'll likely need to practice in some capacity Friday.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Questionable to return

    Olszewski (head) is questionable to return Sunday against the Panthers, Zack Cox of reports.

    Olszewski suffered the injury on a punt return in the first half and likely will be evaluated for a concussion. If he is unable to get back into the game, Kyle Dugger will be in line to take over Olszewski's role.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Won't return

    Olszewski (head) has been ruled out of Sunday's matchup against the Panthers.

    The exact nature of Olszewski's injury is unclear, though he was ruled out quickly. He has served as both the primary kick and punt returner in New England, so the team will have a significant void to fill on special teams.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Will play in preseason finale

    Olszewski (undisclosed) will suit up for Sunday's preseason finale against the Giants, Zach Cox of NESN reports.

    Olszewski was not seen at the Patriots' joint practice with the Giants on Thursday and did not practice Friday either. It is unclear what caused his absence, but it doesn't appear to be too significant, as the prolific return man has returned to action for the preseason finale.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Sits out Thursday's joint practice

    Olszewski (undisclosed) was not seen at Thursday's joint practice against the Giants, Ryan Hannable of reports.

    It is not clear why Olszewski wasn't at practice. After a prolific season as the Patriots' primary return man, the 24-year-old was selected to the AP 2020 All-Pro First Team as a special teamer. If he is unable to go for the final preseason game Sunday, expect J.J. Taylor and Kyle Dugger to share Olszewski's vacant reps.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Strong work on special teams

    Olszewski finished the 2020 season with five catches (on five targets) for 62 yards and a TD and five carries for 23 yards in 13 games.

    While Olszewski didn't see much work in the Patriots offense this past season, he did make quite a mark as a returner, fielding 18 kickoffs for 418 yards and 20 punts for 346 yards and a TD. His strong effort in that department led to the 24-year-old being selected to the AP 2020 All-Pro First Team as a special teamer. Olszewski is under contract with New England through 2021and should thus reprise his role in the return game this coming season. Whether he sees more opportunities as a pass catcher, however, hinges largely on the team's offseason moves at the wide receiver position.

  • Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Makes two trips to end zone

    Olszewski turned his only target into a 38-yard touchdown and added a 70-yard punt return touchdown during Sunday's 45-0 win over the Chargers.

    Olszewski put his team out to a 14-point lead when he returned a punt down the sideline to paydirt in the second quarter and capped off the scoring with a 38-yard touchdown reception from Jarrett Stidham in the final minutes. He came into the game with just five carries and two receptions to his name this season, so the two-score effort was certainly surprising. Olszewski could make the case for more involvement in the offense moving forward after flashing his potential in this one, but he seems unlikely to produce reliable fantasy numbers in Thursday's matchup with the Rams.
