Greg Olsen, tight end for the Carolina Panthers, re-fractured his right foot in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys and he is now expected to miss a significant amount of time.
This is the same foot that kept him sidelined for nine games in 2017, but fortunately Olsen will not need surgery. Instead you can expect him to be evaluated on a monthly basis and possibly go the injured reserve where he would have to miss a minimum of 8 weeks.
The Panthers are not lucky so far as they have also announced that offensive tackle Daryl Williams injured his right knee during the game when a Cowboys player fell on him. Surgery is recommended for Williams.
Carolinas injury woes don’t end there, however. The team also announced that right tackle Daryl Williams will undergo knee surgery after being hurt Sunday, and didn’t provide a timetable for his return.
Rookie Ian Thomas is expected to take over the starting role.
