Its been an abysmal start to this afternoon for the Carolina Panthers, and that includes another injury concern to Greg Olsen.
For the past two seasons, the Pro Bowl tight end has dealt with constant injuries to his foot. He even missed significant time this season after re-fracturing his right foot.
Olsen returned to the gridiron rather quickly, but it appears he’ll be out of action once again. During the second quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Olsen limped off the field with a foot injury.
However, the injury was severe enough for him to get carted off from the sidelines.

Unfortunately, Olsen could miss an extended period of time again for the Panthers.
Just minutes after he went to the locker room, Carolina announced that he’s out for the rest of the game.

Hopefully this injury isn’t too serious, as Olsen is one of the better players in the NFL both on and off the field.
