Panthers TE Greg Olsen Likely Out For Season After Rupturing Plantar Fascia



Panthers TE Greg Olsen announced Sunday that he believes his season is over after rupturing his plantar fascia.

Olsen didn’t want to address his long-term future, but this is the same foot he’s been dealing with the past few years.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen suffered a foot injury during the second quarter of Sunday’s game and was taken off the field on a cart.

The Panthers have already ruled Olsen out for the game, so this is obviously a concerning situation for Olsen, who has dealt with foot issues this season.

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 eight games for the Panthers and caught 26 passes for 278 yards receiving and four touchdowns.

We’ll have more regarding Olsen as the news is available.
