The Carolina Panthers announced this afternoon an official injury update for star tight end Greg Olsen. It's not good news.

Olsen is going miss an extended period of time. The Pro Bowl tight end has suffered a fracture in his right foot.

The Panthers' star tight end suffered the injury in the win over the Cowboys on Sunday. He was seen in a walking boot on the sideline late in the game.

Here's the full update from the Panthers:

Injury updates on tight end Greg Olsen and offensive tackle Daryl Williams from head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion:

“Greg re-fractured his right foot against Dallas. There are no plans for surgery at this time. We will monitor his rehab and evaluate his progress on a monthly basis.”

“Daryl injured his right knee when a Cowboys player fell into the side of his knee. After evaluation, it is team physician Dr. Pat Connor’s recommendation that Daryl undergoes surgery to repair the injury.”

NFL Network insiders Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport had reported earlier this afternoon that Olsen was going to miss a chunk of the season. Going on the IR is a possibility, too.

"Panthers confirm Greg Olsen re-fractured his foot. Will try to rehab. On a month-to-month basis," Garafolo added.

Stay tuned for more updates.
