Panthers TE Greg Olsen sat out the first two games of his rookie season with a knee injury but hasn't missed a regular season game since.
It doesn't look like the back injury that caused him to miss a preseason game will pose any threat to his streak.
"If it had been the regular season, I think I could have made it happen last weekend," Olsen said. "But there was no need to do that, and there's no real concern going forward."
Olsen spoke about the injury Tuesday, when he returned to limited participation in practice after missing more than a week with a back injury. There's no guarantee that Olsen will suit up when the Panthers host the New England Patriots on Friday in the all-important third preseason game, but there's no noteworthy concern, either. Looks like he'll be ready to go Week 1.

Week 6 at New Orleans
Greg Olsen didn’t find the end zone on Monday night against the Bucs, but he did catch nine passes for 181 yards. Olsen is fourth in the league in receiving yards and has been a monster in the passing game for Carolina. He’s also tied for fifth in the NFL with 33 receptions.
Olsen goes up against a Saints defense that allows 301 passing yards per game to opposing offenses and he should once again be heavily targeted in a game that could end up being a shoot-out. He’s the top fantasy option at the TE position every week right now and should be active in all league formats.
