Panthers tight end Greg Olsen underwent surgery Monday to repair the broken right foot he suffered Sunday against the Bills, according to multiple reports.
ESPN.com reported that the surgery was “not complicated,” but the team is determining how to proceed with regard to placing Olsen on injured reserve.
He limped off the field in the first half of Sunday’s 9-3 victory against the Bills.
Olsen, who has been to three straight Pro Bowls, has been the Panthers’ leading receiver the past four seasons and is the only tight end in NFL history with three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons (2014-16).
Eighth-year pro Ed Dickson, listed behind Olsen on the Panthers depth chart, had two catches for 26 yards against the Bills.
Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks: After scoring just 23.64 fantasy points in Weeks 1-2 combined, Wilson managed 33.52 on Sunday, which remarkably was the ninth of his 83 career NFL games with at least 30 fantasy points. Wilson was started in 51.7 percent of ESPN leagues, and he’ll carry the hot performance into another favorable matchup against the Colts in Week 4.
Doug Baldwin, WR, Seahawks: Now that’s the kind of game we wanted to see from Baldwin, a 26.5 PPR fantasy point effort that represented his 11th with at least 25 in his career, nine of which have occurred since the beginning of the 2015 season. Most notably, he managed a tops-among-all-players (through the 4 p.m. ET game block) 15 targets, despite departing in the fourth quarter with a groin injury. Baldwin’s status should be closely monitored, as he’d be one of the position’s top starters in Weeks 4 (versus Colts) and 5 (at Rams) if he’s good to go for those contests.
