Olsen (ankle) was limited in practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati, the Panthers' official site reports.

Despite the questionable tag, coach Ron Rivera said he expects Olsen to suit up against the Bengals. Cincinnati has a middle-of-the-road pass defense (19th in yards allowed) that seems especially vulnerable against tight ends after getting shredded by Rob Gronkowski and Tim Wright last week.

Olsen (ankle) was in uniform for Friday's practice, Jonathan Jones of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Olsen sat out the last two days, but he will take the practice field Friday as expected. Olsen's status for Week 6 is up in the air, but it should be clarified to some degree following Friday's practice.

Olsen (ankle) didn't practice Thursday but is expected to do so Friday, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Olsen's absences to start the week appear to be precautionary in nature, especially considering the report from Steve Reed of the Associated Press that the tight end looked fine during Thursday's warmups. Meanwhile, Olsen managed to haul in six passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Bears, which was accompanied by an ankle injury. Expect his status to clear up in advance of this coming Sunday's contest in Cincinnati.

Olsen did not practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Olsen tweaked his ankle during Sunday's game, but still finished with a team-high six receptions on nine targets for 72 yards and two touchdowns. While the veteran sat out Wednesday's practice to gain some rest, Olsen is still a solid bet to suit up Sunday versus the Bengals.

Olsen made a team-high six receptions (on nine targets) for 72 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Bears.

Olsen was a huge difference-maker versus his former team Sunday, as his pair of red zone touchdowns included the game-winning score with just over two minutes to play. Besides a lackluster 30 yards last weekend, the veteran tight end has now gone for at least 69 receiving yards in every game this season. Additionally, Olsen is averaging a healthy eight targets and boasts four touchdowns to boot. Olsen is a steady presence in the Panthers' offense and will be likely be relied upon against a stingy Bengals' defense next Sunday.

Olsen caught just two passes (on five targets) for 30 yards Sunday against the Ravens.

Olsen's Sunday output marked his fewest receptions, targets, and yards since Week 10 of last season. For a fantasy fixture that's normally as reliable as they come, Olsen simply wasn't involved Sunday as much as he normally is in the Panthers' offense. In a rebound attempt, Olsen will face his former team, the Bears, at home next weekend.

Olsen (calf) had five catches for 69 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Sunday's 37-19 loss to the Steelers.

Olsen made a nice play at the beginning of the third quarter, taking an intermediate pass 37 yards for a touchdown to cut the Panthers' deficit to 10 points. As expected before the season, Olsen and rookie WR Kelvin Benjamin are the clear top options in Carolina's passing game, having accounted for 53 of the team's 109 targets through three weeks. Olsen has 26 of those, with 19 receptions for 224 yards and two touchdowns to show for it.

Olsen (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

The Panthers' leader in targets this season with 19, Olsen is a steady security blanket for Cam Newton, especially since 10 of the tight end's 14 receptions have resulted in a first down.

Olsen (calf) is probable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Olsen's health isn't an issue after practicing fully Thursday and Friday. He's one of the league's most valuable tight ends going into Week 3, as he has 19 targets already heading into his third game.

Olsen (calf) practiced fully Thursday, the Panthers' official site reports.

With an uncapped practice under his belt, Olsen will presumably enter the weekend with probable status, which will be confirmed (or denied) by the release of Friday's injury report. Through two games, he's been targeted 19 times en route to 14 receptions for 155 yards and one touchdown.
