Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Healthy going forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (ankle) was absent from the injury report Wednesday.

Olszewski missed the Week 9's loss to the Ravens, but he leveraged the bye week to get healthy. The rookie wideout will suit up for Sunday's game against the Ravens, but he's not expected to have a major role on offense, especially with rookie first-round pick N'Keal Harry in line for his NFL debut.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Unavailable for SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

The rookie receiver's main contribution is as a returner. Matthew Slater figures to return kicks while Julian Edelman could field punts in Olszewski's place.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Questionable Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (ankle/hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Olszewksi played through the ankle and hamstring injuries last week after being listed as questionable and appears primed to do so again Week 9. The 22-year-old should work as the Patriots' primary return man, assuming he suits up.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (ankle/hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Nora Princiotti of The Boston Globe reports.

Olszewski managed to play through his lingering ankle and hamstring injuries during Week 8's win over the Browns, so there's not yet any reason to doubt his availability for Sunday's tilt against the Ravens. If he's able to go, the Bemidji State product will do most of his damage as New England's primary kick and punt returner.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Ready for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (ankle/hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against Cleveland.

Olszewski suited up in last week's game despite coming into it with a hamstring injury, and will do the same thing for Week 8. Now that he's officially healthy, the undrafted rookie will be deployed as a depth receiver, and act as the team's starting return man on punt and kick returns.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (ankle/hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Nora Princiotti of The Boston Globe reports.

Olszewski was suited up for this past Monday's game against the Browns despite a hamstring injury, and it appears he's picked up an ankle injury, too. The undrafted rookie managed to practice in a limited fashion this week, and his official status won't be clear until 90 minutes before Sunday's kickoff at 4:25 p.m. ET. With Phillip Dorsett healthy and Mohamed Sanu in the fold, Olszewski will likely remain on special teams if he's able to go.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Logs 15 snaps on offense Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski did not record a catch in Monday night's 33-0 win over the Jets.

Olszewski, who was on the field for 15 of the Patriots' 82 snaps on offense Monday, saw just one target in the game. With Phillip Dorsett back in action and the team having acquired Mohamed Sanu, Olszewski isn't going to be a big part of the team's offense until the next wave of injuries hits New England's receiving corps.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (hamstring) is listed as active for Monday night's game against the Jets.

With Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) back in action and Julian Edelman (chest) on hand to work in his usual high-volume role, Olszewski -- who caught his first two regular-season passes (for 34 yards) in Week 6 -- figures to work in a complementary role in the Patriots offense Monday, while serving as the team's primary punt returner.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Questionable for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Jets.

Olszewski was added to Saturday's injury report with a hamstring issue after practicing in full to begin the week. He appears to have picked up the injury mid-week, and his status for Monday Night Football could come down to a game-time decision. In the event that Olszewski is forced to miss any time, Matthew Slater will serve as the Patriots' top kick returner and Julian Edelman (chest) will take back punts.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Catches first two passes as a pro
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski was on the field for 50 of a possible 82 snaps on offense in Thursday's 35-14 win over the Giants, en route to catching two of his three targets for 34 yards.

Olszewski, who has been serving as the Patriots' punt returner, saw his profile in the offense expand Thursday, with Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) inactive and Josh Gordon (knee) forced out of the contest after seeing just 26 snaps. The Patriots don't play again until Oct. 21, and if either Dorsett or Gordon are able to play then, Olszewski figures to revert to his usual role, which didn't yield him a catch through his first five contests this season.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (hamsting) will play in Sunday's tilt against the Bills.

Olszewski was a late addition to the injury report heading into the game, but, as evidenced by this news, it could've been just precautionary. With Julian Edelman's (chest) snap count unclear for the game, Olszewski could see time in the offense, as well as being deployed as the team punt return man for Week 4.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Hamstring injury crops up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski (hamstring) has been added to the New England's injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with Buffalo, Mike Reiss of ESPN's NFL Nation reports. He's listed as questionable.

Olszewski isn't an impact player on offense but normally handles punt return duties. Julian Edelman would be the likeliest candidate (assuming he plays through his own injury) to take over punt return duties if Olszewski can't go.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Logs seven snaps on offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski was on the field for seven of a possible 77 snaps on offense in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Jets.

Olszewski, who wasn't targeted in the game, saw some snaps on offense Sunday with Julian Edelman (ribs) banged up. Unless Edelman's injury costs him time in future contests, Olszewski should see the bulk of his snaps on special teams moving forward, but even his role on those units could become smaller after he muffed a punt in the win over New York.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Serves as punt returner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski did not see a snap on offense in Sunday's 43-0 win over the Dolphins.

Olszewski did see 16 special teams snaps in Week 2 while serving as the Patriots' punt returner. That's a role he figures to maintain, with an eye toward keeping starting receiver Julian Edelman safe from harm's way in the return game.

Patriots' Gunner Olszewski: Serves as punt returner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olszewski logged one of a possible 70 snaps on offense in Sunday's 33-3 win over the Steelers.

Olszewski did see 13 special-teams snaps, en route to returning two punts for 35 yards. With Antonio Brown poised to join the team's wideout mix, Olszewski obviously isn't going to be a big factor in the team's attack. However, he could remain active as a returner, with an eye toward keeping Julian Edelman safe from harm's way on that front.
