Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had surgery on injured foot

According to a report by Ian Rapoport at NFL Network, Panthers tight end Greg Olsen underwent surgery this past week on his injured foot.

Olsen has had issues with his right foot since the second week of the 2017 season, when he suffered a Jones fracture. He missed the team’s next nine games and was inconsistent when he returned.

This year, Olsen re-injured the same bone in the season opener against the Cowboys. He only missed three weeks this time. However, Olsen’s troubles were not over.

After his return, Olsen played eight more games before he went down against Tampa Bay with a non-contact injury. Afterwards, Olsen said he felt something in his foot pop. He was placed on injured reserve the next day. Olsen finished the 2018 season with 27 catches for 201 yards and four touchdowns.

In his place, rookie tight end Ian Thomas is starting to find his stride. Last week, he posted a career high nine catches for 77 yards.

Olsen is under contract for two more years.
