  Panthers | Greg Olsen considering TV jobs?    Tue Feb 26, 09:26 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has received offers from ESPN and Fox to serve as an analyst, according to the New York Post's Andrew Marchand. Two sources have reportedly spoken to Olsen and believe he favors playing, however, 'unless the TV offers come close to the money and/or there is a clear path to even more opportunities.'

Footballguys view: We know that Olsen is close to the end of his playing career. The Panthers know that too, and that's one of the reasons why they selected Ian Thomas in the 2018 NFL draft.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) suffered a foot injury during the Week 13 game and will not return.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is expected to play in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins, and the plan is for him to be in the starting lineup, a source said Saturday, Oct. 13.

Footballguys view: Olsen's foot injury is going to require surgery after the season but he's back now and ready as he'll ever be this season. The tight end position is brutal this year for Fantasy GMs, but a clearly less-than-100-percent Olsen is a TE2 in Week 6.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen listed as questionable    Fri Oct 12, 01:34 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) has been listed as questionable for Week 6 versus the Washington Redskins, although head coach Ron Rivera told reporters Friday, Oct. 12, that he likes Olsen's chances to play.

Footballguys view: If Olsen plays he's worth a start because of the weak competition at the tight end position, but it's certainly possible that he doesn't look like himself, or gets fewer targets than usual in his first week back. The Panthers offense has four viable wide receiver targets and Christian McCaffery.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was listed as a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 11, and offensive coordinator Norv Turner said he remains on target to return and play in Sunday's Week 6 game against the Washington Redskins.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen a limited participant    Wed Oct 10, 06:14 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 10.

Footballguys view: It looks like Olsen is on track to play in Week 6. He's been out since injuring his foot (again) in Week 1. Olsen will need surgery after the season so he's clearly not 100 percent upon his return this week. Fantasy GMs need to proceed with caution when considering Olsen....look at him as a low-end TE1 against Washington.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) anticipates returning to action in Week 6 but also believes he will require a second surgery for his Jones fracture, according to Joe Person of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Olsen's foot injury has been problematic over the last two seasons. He could return but obviously won't be 100 percent healthy. Fantasy GMs should temper their expectations upon Olsen's return.

Footballguys view: Olsen will attempt to play through his foot injury, although he'll likely need surgery when the season is over. He'll be worth a TE1 start any time he is active, but his situation is precarious.
