Panthers TE Greg Olsen on crutches after foot injury

Panthers TE Greg Olsen on crutches after foot injuryā€¯

FYI: Bills coach Sean McDermott addressed his team's quarterback situation Monday, reiterating his faith in Taylor despite Sunday's lackluster offensive performance.

This grade may drop a bit because of McCaffrey, who may consider waving fair a punt or two after gaining just 30 total yards. Dennison said he was fine with those decisions because Taylor gained positive yards, even if short.

Although the Panthers have Kelvin Benjamin, they don't really have many other unsafe weapons in the passing game. Four of those came on the final drive. After the game, an emotional Olsen confirmed fantasy owners and Panthers fans' worst fears: he has a broken foot. While they still can conduct searches but by-law, they will need permission to do so. In every other game he's ever played he's had 71 yards or fewer and has been just as touchdown dependent as Benjamin.

Taylor ended 17-25 for 125 yards in the Bills 9-3 loss at Carolina and he only managed 15 passing yards in the first half. "I've been around a couple of coaches that have had what I would consider pretty good success in this league, Andy Reid among them", said McDermott.

The offense, by comparison, spent much of the first 57 1/2 minutes stuck in neutral. Cam was sacked six times on Sunday after not being sacked at all in week one. He was one of the top-ranked tight ends in all of football coming into the season and was poised to play a big part in Carolina's offense.

Olsen told reporters after the game: "Broke my foot". Following his departure, he seen using crutches on the sideline. Ed Dickson also commented on the injury and stated that the Panthers wouldn't really be able to replace Olsen as he is a Pro Bowl player.

Defense ruled the day for both teams, as indicated by the dearth of points on the scoreboard at game's end. Honestly speaking, this team loves games like this because it comes down to who has the better defense.

Olsen's injury comes at a time when the Panthers needed him to be on the field the most.

A wonderful surprise for this defense has been how well their secondary has played. "There are great people around that organization, and it'll be a huge challenge for us to go down there".

"He has 3,000 yards over the last three years, so that goes somewhere", Shepard said. But he's still playing like a 27-year-old, leading the team in sacks, with 2.5 after collecting two against the Bills.
