Seahawks TE Greg Olsen Expected To Miss At Least Two Months With Plantar Fascia Tear



Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Seahawks TE Greg Olsen will miss at least two months after suffering a ruptured plantar fascia.

According to Rapoport, Rapoport the hope is that Olsen could come back, but it would likely require the Seahawks to make a deep playoff run and possibly reach the Super Bowl. 

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters after Thursday’s game that TE Greg Olsen suffered a plantar fascia tear and it’s unclear if he’ll be able to return this season, per Bob Condotta.

Carroll added that Olsen knew what it was from previously suffering the same injury to his right foot two years ago.

“When it ruptures like it did we think it’s the best thing for a quick recovery, so we’ll see what happens and wish him the best,” Carroll said, per Curtis Crabtree

Odds are good the Seahawks will place Olsen on injured reserve in the coming days, which will keep him out at least three games.

Olsen, 35, 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 played out the final year of his two-year, $17 million extension with the Panthers before signing a one-year, $7 million deal with the Seahawks this offseason. 

In 2020, Olsen has appeared in nine games for the Seahawks and caught 21 passes for 204 yards receiving and one touchdown.
