Here’s the Panthers updated practice squad:
- RB Reggie Bonnafon
- TE Jason Vander Laan
- G Taylor Hearn
- OL Dorian Johnson
- CB Cole Luke
- LB Brandon Chubb
- QB Kyle Allen
- WR DeAndrew White
- S Kai Nacua
On Sunday, Olsen ruptured his plantar fascia and later told reporters that his season was likely over, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.
Olsen, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Bears back in 2007. He played four years for Chicago before he was traded to the Panthers in 2011.
Olsen was in the final year of a four-year, $27.75 million contract and is set to make a base salary of $6.5 million for the 2018 season when he agreed to a two-year extension worth $8.55 million back in April.
In 2018, Olsen has appeared in nine games for the Panthers and caught 27 passes for 291 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
