Panthers TE Greg Olsen: The plan is still to play Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

Olsen has been a popular stash player on rosters over the last few weeks with the anticipation of his return this week. And it looks like that will be the case. Be sure to check our rankings and projected points as injured players returning their first week sometimes need a week to get back to form so Olsen may come with some risks.

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. Hurns is expected to miss Week 11. The Jaguars may elect to activate Dede Westbrook from injured reserve. Kaelin Clay will probably play ahead of Westbrook in the rookie’s first game back.

Ron Rivera said Greg Olsen is progressing very well and the plan is still for him to return for the team's game against the Jets in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact:

Reed added in his tweet that plan could change but Rivera likes where Olsen is at to this point and the team is excited to get him back. As we've seen from players returning from injury, they don't always jump right in with fantasy success but Olsen is looking to be ready to go for the fantasy playoffs.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) lost for year

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Panthers’ worst fears were confirmed with additional medical tests on Curtis Samuel‘s injured left ankle Tuesday. The rookie will miss the rest of the season, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, after being diagnosed with ligament damage.

The Panthers have only four other receivers on their active roster – Devin Funchess, Russell Shepard, Kaelin Clay and Brenton Bersin — but Damiere Byrd is eligible to come off injured reserve for the team’s game against the Saints on Dec. 3. Byrd broke his forearm in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact:

Samuel, a second-round pick, twisted his right ankle in the preseason. He missed Thursday’s practice after tweaking it.
