Panthers' Greg Olsen: Solid in first game since Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen caught four of seven targets for 48 yards, but the Panthers fell by a 23-17 tally to Washington on Sunday.

It was a promising return for the veteran tight end in Week 6, as Olsen stayed involved offensively in his first appearance since aggravating a foot injury during the season opener against Dallas. The foot ailment had plagued the 33-year-old for an extended period of time, as his 48 receiving yards against Washington on Sunday provides Olsen with his third-highest receiving output since the start of last season. Sunday brings a matchup with an Eagles defense that has proven it can be exposed through the air, ranking 20th in the league with 273 passing yards allowed per game.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: To officially make return Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (foot) is active Sunday against Washington, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Olsen's "active" announcement is merely a formality, as the tight end was cleared to play earlier in the week but added back to the injury report with a "questionable" designation Friday. While there's always a risk of a setback given that Olsen himself has admitted he will eventually need surgery, the plan is for him to take on as close to a regular workload as possible. The veteran will be matched up against a Washington defense that is in the middle of the pack in terms of fantasy production allowed to tight ends, giving up 7.1 points per contest in standard formats.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: On track to play, start Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (foot), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, is expected to start the contest, Tiffany Blackmon of NFL Network reports.

Olsen has been targeting Oct. 14 as his return from a fractured right foot for a while now and it appears he'll meet his goal after turning in a pair of full practices Thursday and Friday. Though Olsen still carries an injury designation into the contest, coach Ron Rivera relayed a couple days ago that the tight end would likely be listed as "probable" if the NFL still allowed the designation. With Olsen on track to step back in as the Panthers' starting tight end, rookie Ian Thomas will see his snaps take a hit as a result. Even though Olsen could face more restrictions than normal as he works back from a three-game absence, he'll still profile as a viable fantasy play in light of the underwhelming options at tight end across the league.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Updated to questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers will edit their final injury report to list Olsen (foot) as questionable for Sunday's game at Washington, but coach Ron Rivera said the tight end would be 'probable' if the designation still existed, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Olsen didn't have a game designation on the initial release of the injury report after logging full practices Thursday and Friday. Despite the decision to add the tight end to the final report, coach Ron Rivera doesn't seem to have departed from his expectation that Olsen will be fine to handle his usual heavy workload. Rivera noted that the 33-year-old took more reps than normal at Friday's practice to test out his right foot ahead of Sunday's game, per David Newton of ESPN.com. There is still some risk of an in-game setback, as Olsen recently acknowledged the likelihood he'll eventually need surgery to address his Jones fracture. He hopes the procedure can wait until the offseason.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (foot) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game at Washington, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Olsen resumed practicing on a limited basis last week and was upgraded to full participation Thursday. He's now been cleared for Sunday's game at Washington, with coach Ron Rivera even suggesting that Olsen will handle his usual workload. There is serious risk of an in-game setback, as Olsen already acknowledged the likelihood of his Jones fracture requiring surgery at some point. He hopes to make it through the rest of the season and then have the procedure in January or February.
