Greg Olsen placed on IR

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen (foot) was placed on the injured reserve list with a broken foot on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Olsen, who underwent foot surgery Tuesday, was placed on the injured reserve list. Since his injury is not expected to be season-ending, Olsen would be eligible to be activated off IR in eight weeks in a best-case scenario, which is right around Week 10. In Olsen's absence, Ed Dickson is Carolina's TE1.

Greg Olsen to miss extended time with injury

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen (foot) will miss at least the next six games with a broken foot suffered in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact

Although Olsen broke his foot, Rapoport is reporting the injury is not season ending and he will return at some point in 2017. However, Rapoport is adding that because Olsen will miss at least the next six games, the Panthers could elect to place him on the short-term injured reserve list to clear a roster spot. With Olsen out, Ed Dickson is the Panthers' TE1.

Greg Olsen out indefinitely with a broken foot

Greg Olsen fractured his foot in Week 2's matchup against the Buffalo Bills and is out indefinitely, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Olsen originally left the game with a foot injury and was probable to return, but he was eventually ruled out. As it turns out, he actually broke his foot and could miss a significant amount of time. He has been Cam Newton's favorite target for a couple years now, and he has been one of the most productive tight ends for fantasy, but the Panthers and fantasy owners will now be without him for the foreseeable future.

Greg Olsen OUT with a foot injury; will not return Sunday

Greg Olsen left Sunday's game with a foot injury and will not return, according to the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Olsen was probable to return to the game after leaving with the foot injury, but the team and their training staff decided that he would not return. He had one catch for 10 yards at the time of the injury. Monitor his status going forward and consider him questionable for Week 3, for now.

Greg Olsen does not make an impact in Week 1

Greg Olsen hauled in two of his four targets for a total of 17 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Greg Olsen has been a top target for Cam Newton over the last few years. Although that trend did not hold true for Week 1, Olsen should still be a top tier Tightend.
