Panthers tight end Greg Olsen breaks foot during Carolina’s 9-3 victory against Buffalo Bills
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen broke his foot Sunday during the team’s home opener against the Buffalo Bills.
ESPN reported that Olsen is scheduled to see a doctor on Monday, following Carolina’s 9-3 victory.
Olsen will be out for probably six to eight weeks, although that number could change, a source told the Charlotte Observer.
“I was running a route and I just stepped and I just fell,” Olsen said, according to the Observer. “I just felt something in my right foot. I didn’t touch anybody. It’s just the way my foot went down. It just popped.”
Prior to the injury, Olsen had one catch for 10 yards against Buffalo. He came out during the second half on crutches.
The Panthers are now 2-0 and face the New Orleans Saints at Bank of American Stadium in Charlotte next week.
