Greg Olsen, Jonathan Stewart injured vs. Falcons

ESPN - [Full Article]

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen went down late in the first half of Sunday's NFC South game against the Atlanta Falcons holding his knee after an incompletion in the end zone.

Initial tests did not reveal damage to Olsen's ACL.

Also, running back Jonathan Stewart suffered a foot injury late in the first half, and kicker Graham Gano was being tested for a possible concussion.

Stewart rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries in the first half.

Fantasy Impact: 

Reports on Olsen say he should be fine. Stewart was questionable to return but with a big lead there wasn't a good chance the Panthers were going to bring either player back. The Panthers have now clinched a first round bye which means there isn't a big need to rush guys like Olsen and Stewart back on the field over the next few weeks. It's a situation to monitor for fantasy owners as all that's left for the Panthers is clinching home field advantage.
