Panthers' Greg Olsen: Could still consider broadcasting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (foot) said his mindset is to focus on rehab so he can play football in 2019, but he doesn't want to shut the door on any potential opportunities in broadcasting, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Olsen auditioned for a job with ESPN last March, then signed a two-year, $17.1 million extension (through 2020) in April. Coming off a second straight season marred by his problematic right foot, the veteran tight end has made multiple comments suggesting he plans to play another year. He could still change his mind if the rehab from December surgery doesn't go well, but it does seem he truly wants to play. Olsen will turn 34 in March and is believed to be facing a rehab timeline of 3-to-4 months. He should be healthy for training camp, if not for part of the offseason program.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Aiming to resume career in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (foot) expects to resume his career in 2019, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. "I still enjoy playing and I still know I can play, Olsen said Wednesday.

Recently, Olsen underwent surgery on his right foot for the second time in as many seasons. The first one -- the insertion of a screw in September of 2017 -- was more or less a quick fix, and multiple aggravations ensued this season. On this occasion, Olsen had the screw replaced and also included a bone graft, which he told Rodrigue typically has a high success rate. According to Rodrigue, this surgery "fixed it [a Jones fracture] for good" in other players. While Olsen faces 3-4 months of rehabilitation, he's aiming to log a 13th pro season next fall.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Expected to continue career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Ron Rivera expects Olsen (foot) to play football in 2019, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Olsen will turn 34 in March and is eventually expected to have a career in broadcasting, but it sounds like the Panthers expect him back for at least one more season. He recently had surgery to address a ruptured plantar fascia in his problematic right foot. Olsen may not be ready for the team's offseason program, but he should have enough time to finish up the rehab process before training camp opens.

Panthers' Greg Olsen: Expected to make full recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olsen (foot) recently underwent surgery on his right foot and is expected to make a full recovery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Olsen re-injured his surgically repaired right foot during the Panthers' Week 13 loss to Tampa Bay and was ultimately placed on injured reserve ahead of Carolina's Week 14 loss to Cleveland. The 33-year-old remains under contract through the next two seasons, but it isn't clear how much of Olsen's impending rehab program will eat into his preparation time for the 2019 campaign.

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.
