Injury Predictor

Olsen had played a full 16 games for 9 straight seasons, but a broken foot shattered that in 2017. The Week 2 injury kept him out until Week 12, and then soreness in the foot cost Olsen Week 13 and much of the following game. He returned to close out the year, though, including an 8-107-1 receiving line at New Orleans in Carolina's playoff loss. Olsen's healthy heading into 2018, though, and even got an offseason extension at age 33.
