Panthers QB good to go vs. Bills

Posted September 18, 2017

On Sunday, Panthers tight end Greg Olsen left the team's win over the Bills with a foot injury. Shortly after the start of the second half, it was revealed he would not return to the game. Finding depth at tight end in the season on the waiver wire is hard, so Olsen owners will likely need to find someone with two strong tight ends and try making a trade to replace him.

The Bills (1-1) were held to less 200 yards of offense on the day, virtually all of it coming through Taylor: 17/25 for 125 yards in the air, along with 55 more on the ground.

It didn't help the Panthers offense that center Ryan Kalil didn't play, although he was dressed, after reportedly waking up on Sunday with a sore neck.

Cam Newton was 20 of 32 for 228 yards but was sacked six times by Sean McDermott's defense. That ended on a failed fourth-and-1 conversion from the Panthers 44. Running backs LeSean McCoy and Mike Tolbert combined for just 14 yards on 15 carries.

GETTING HIS KICKS: Gano was locked in a kicking battle in the preseason, but is 6 for 6 on field goal attempts so far this season.

Carolina opened the scoring on Gano's 34-yard field goal to conclude the game's first possession. The Bills only mustered one first down in the opening 30 minutes of play and never crossed the 50-yard line.

Following Carolina's 9-3 win, Olsen confirmed he suffered a broken foot.

Bills OT Cordy Glenn injured his ankle and did not return. The Bills are home next Sunday against Denver.
