Greg Olsen Out With Concussion


Panthers tight end Greg Olsen will not play Sunday against the Falcons due to a concussion.

Olsen was injured last week against the Washington Redskins when he took a helmet-to-helmet hit from linebacker Ryan Anderson. Anderson was tossed from the game but it obviously doesn’t change what happened to Olsen.

Injuries have limited Olsen in 2017 and 2018 but he was in the midst of a bounce-back campaign this season. In 12 games, Olsen has hauled in 48 receptions for 552 yards.

Ian Thomas filled in for Olsen after he was injured last week and should get the start this week.
