Panthers TE Olsen put on IR

(TSX / STATS) -- The Carolina Panthers placed Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen on injured reserve Tuesday.

Olsen sustained a broken foot during Sunday's 9-3 home-opening victory over the Buffalo Bills. The 32-year-old underwent surgery the following day and is eligible to return to the active roster after eight weeks, which would put him on schedule to play at the New York Jets on Nov. 26.

"He broke the fifth metatarsal on his right foot -- it's called a Jones fracture," head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion told the Panthers' official website. "He had a screw inserted to repair the fracture."
