News: Olsen (calf) caught two passes for 21 yards on four targets in Friday's preseason game against the Patriots. Impact: The Panthers have done nothing to quiet the questions about their receiving corps, as Kelvin Benjamin's strong preseason has been surrounded by a whole lot of nothing from the other wideouts. It increasingly seems that Benjamin and Olsen will devour a high percentage of the targets, but the Panthers don't project as a prolific passing team, and still figure to favor their four-headed running game near the goal line. As for the calf injury, Olsen appears to be fine.(RotoWire, )

News: Olsen (calf) did not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Chiefs.

News: Olsen (calf) did not practice Thursday. Impact: The report suggests that Olsen -- who was kicked in the calf in a recent practice -- was held out as a precaution Thursday, so it remains plausible that the tight end could still suit up for Sunday's preseason contest against the Chiefs.(RotoWire, )
