Panthers TE Olsen heads to IR; will miss at least 8 games

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Greg Olsen will miss a minimum of eight games after the Panthers placed the three-time Pro Bowl tight end on injured reserve with a broken right foot Tuesday.

The earliest Olsen is eligible to return Nov. 26 when Panthers visit the New York Jets.

Panthers trainer Ryan Vermillion told the team website that Olsen has a "Jones fracture," meaning he broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Olsen was injured in the second quarter of Carolina's 9-3 win over Buffalo and has surgery Monday.
