TAMPA, Fla. - Tight end Greg Olsen won't return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers because of a foot injury.
Olsen injured his right foot early in the second quarter - the same foot that sidelined him earlier this season and much of last season. Right after a snap, Olsen pulled up without making any contact with another player and hobbled toward the Panthers sideline before going to the ground. He was carted off the field soon after and ruled out for the rest of the game very soon after.
Olsen had one catch for 13 yards before exiting. Rookie Ian Thomas came in and caught a pass on Carolina's next drive.
