Panthers' Greg Olsen: Officially lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers placed Olsen (foot) on injured reserve Wednesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

As anticipated, Olsen's 2018 season officially comes to an end after he re-injured his surgically repaired right foot in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Buccaneers, with his latest setback being labeled as a ruptured plantar fascia. Olsen is under contract through 2019, but with the foot issues causing him to miss half of the Panthers' regular-season contests over the past two seasons and another surgery on tap, it's possible the 33-year-old walks away from the game. The Panthers will proceed with rookie Ian Thomas as their top pass-catching tight end, with Chris Manhertz and fullback Alex Armah on hand to draw snaps at the position mainly in blocking situations.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: IR likely on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers are expected to place Olsen (foot) on IR this week, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Per ESPN's David Newton, Olsen indicated that he ruptured the "plantar" in his right foot during Week 13 action. With Olsen sidelined, the profile of fellow tight end Ian Thomas in the Panthers offense is bound to expand, making him an option for those scrambling to replace Olsen on fantasy rosters.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Suffers season-ending foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen said he ruptured the "plantar" in his right foot during Sunday's 24-17 loss at Tampa Bay, ending his season, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. "It was kind of just a matter of time with this foot," Olsen told Max Henson of the Panthers' official site. "[We] got as much out of it as we could have."

Injuries to his right foot have plagued Olsen for most of the past two seasons. He didn't come close to replicating his production from the previous three seasons -- all of them 1,000-yard efforts -- hauling in 44 of 76 passes for 482 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games between 2017 and 2018. Surgery will be ordered up at the appropriate time, after which a timetable for his recovery should be released. Look for fellow tight ends Ian Thomas and Chris Manhertz to fill in for Olsen the rest of the way.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Won't return Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (foot) won't reenter Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

After limping off the field favoring his right foot, Olsen immediately was taken on a cart to the locker room. He missed 12 games combined the past two seasons due to Jones fractures in that foot, but an official diagnosis ultimately will determine if another absence is in his future.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Limps off field Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (foot) was carted to the locker room early in the second quarter of Sunday's game at Tampa Bay, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Olsen limped off the field favoring his right foot, which has sustained Jones fracture both of the past two seasons. While he's played through the injury this year, he may have aggravated it as the Panthers enter the stretch run. Rookie Ian Thomas and Chris Manhertz are the remaining tight ends on the Panthers roster.
