Later news broke that Olsen will likely get surgery at the end of the season, but hopes the foot will hold up this year. This could make him a risky play week-to-week. As for this week, Rivera hopes to see Olsen on the practice field Wednesday. Olsen did have two limited practices to close out last week. A return to full participation would put Olsen on track to play Week 6, though it's possible the Panthers might limit his snaps.
