Greg Olsen Will Miss Bucs-Panthers Game

September 19th, 2017

Greg Olsen joins another superstar who will not play against the Bucs next month

A giant annual thorn in Tampa Bay’s side was removed by the football gods today.

Man, those football gods continue to deliver the Buccaneers great news — and distressing news.

Today, Panthers stud tight end Greg Olsen was put on injured reserved with a broken foot and is ineligible to return for two months. The Bucs host Carolina on October 29th, so based on Joe’s calendar and math skills, fans have a reason to celebrate.

Olsen embarrassed the Bucs defense with 181 yards on nine catches last October on Monday Night Football, and he’s had a series of great games against the men in pewter and red.

Cardinals all-world running back David Johnson had wrist surgery this week and will miss the Bucs-Cardinals clash in the desert on Oct. 15.

  2. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    You hate to see a player injured…..but, better theirs than ours. While I don’t like seeing a career or season ending injury…I c

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I certainly don’t mind seeing a Buc game ending injury.

  4. Scott99 Says:

    I don’t care about who’s injured… I rather have them be full strength.

  5. Pickgrin Says:

    Meanwhile the Bucs are almost completely injury free. Kwon has a healing hammy and Jac Smith is still trying to get back on the field. Other than that – I don’t think one other player is doubtful or “out” vs the Vikings.

    Let’s hope the Buccaneers can stay relatively healthy this year. I believe big things await if they can.

    Didn’t we win that game on MNF? Embarrassed us? What other O players for the Panthers had any stats in that game. Only ones that got embarrassed was the losing team… C’mon!!

    Hey Joe u forgot about the Giants Invisible O-Line! Hahaha

  8. Conte Piscateli Says:

    We still have a couple weeks for Gronk’s groin to get worse to dodge that built as well.

    Pickgrin…. If you listen to the Podcasts, you would hear one of the Canton Custodians say that he is more concerned about LD’s cramps/foot than Kwon’s Hammy…so don’t get ahead of yourself. Injury of any kind is always a concern…and you often don’t know the extent of it until a day or two after a game.

    @ conte

    The pats won a superbowl without gronk. No matter who is on the field for the other team, the bucs still have to execute.

    Posters just LOVE to disagree. I personally don’t need to argue everything someone else says. It’s really comical……I guess that’s why I even bother reading all the BS. Great win, as all wins are. GO BUCS!!!!

  12. Mikadeemas Says:

    I certainly appreciate some of y’all, though!

  13. CT Buc's Fan Says:

    While I’d love to see the Buc’s go deep into the playoff’s, I’m hoping they can get there because they’re great, and not because the teams we’re playing are crippled with their key guys injured.

    I’d rather go against the Panthers at full strength and beat the hell out of them that way.

  14. Q Says:

    This is good news but….we need to play teams with key players playing…just excuse for people to say we beat teams without their key players

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    I used to root for Sapp to rip Favre’s leg off, as in literally rip it off. The obnoxious Packers fans that would be everywhere would be booing me but a quick, extremely graphic, description of where the term Packers came from generally shut them up.

  16. JonBuc Says:

    Olsen has owned the Bucs for years. Another guy Lovie had no use for ( Chicago days/daze )…Ha!

  17. darin Says:

    It should be good news to every bucs fan. Every win is important. Olsens a great player. On a closer front it appears bradford wont be playing this week. So his coach said. We will see if thats BS. But unless case keenum vs mike smiths D goes all case keenum vs lovie smiths D, thatll help. Go Bucs

  18. BucTrooper Says:

    FYI a couple of years back Bucs fans were saying they dodged a bullet by not getting to face Cam Newton because of injury and Derek Anderson beat the Bucs twice. I’m automatically wary of being excited because of an “injury.”
