Panthers place tight end Greg Olsen on injured reserve
The move was expected after Olsen told reporters on Sunday that he ruptured his right plantar fascia in Carolina’s 24-17 loss to the Buccaneers.
The Panthers have signed wide receiver Mose Frazier from the practice squad to take Olsen’s roster spot.
It is Olsen’s third foot injury in the last two seasons. He previously broke the same foot in 2017 and again earlier this season.
Olsen is a three-time Pro Bowl selection and the only tight end in NFL history with three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons.
