Panthers’ Greg Olsen To Return In A “Few Weeks”

Published

on

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, who suffered a fracture in his foot earlier this week, says that he plans to rest his foot for a “few weeks” before returning to play out the rest of the season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

It’s quite the reverse in fortune for both Olsen and the Panthers, who were facing the prospect of Olsen missing the majority, if not all, of the 2018 regular season, but Olsen is holding off on surgery until after the season to help get back to the field sooner.

Carolina Panthers’ tight end Greg Olsen will miss extensive time due to a foot fracture he suffered during Sunday’s season opener against the Dallas Cowboys, his second foot fracture in the past two seasons, according to a team announcement.

Olsen will be evaluated on a monthly basis and there are currently no plans for the veteran to undergo surgery. Olsen missed 9 games last season with a fracture to the same foot.

With Olsen on the shelf, the Panthers’ decision to let Ed Dickson walk in free agency looms larger as they only have rookie Ian Thomas and Chris Manhertz in position to fill in as Olsen recovers from injury.

Charles Johnson Announces Retirement

Charles Johnson, a former defensive end and pass rushing specialist for the Carolina Panthers, has officially announced his retirement from the NFL.

Johnson, 32, was cut earlier this year and had not generated much interest on the free agent market. Johnson had a rough 2017 season, following back surgery, when he failed to register a sack in an 11 game span and was suspended in December for PEDs.

Johnson spent 11 seasons with the Panthers, collecting 67.5 sacks, including an impressive 32.5 sacks from 2011-2013.

“Once you have back surgery, I don’t care who you are, it’s a beast to get back,” Johnson said. “My body was just… I haven’t worked out since this winter. I tried to get motivated to work out, and my body said, ‘We’re not working out right now.’ It was about that time.”
