Olsen's injury will compel Fantasy owners to make Benjamin a routine starter for a while. He was taken to the locker room where he later emerged on crutches.

Olsen's injury comes at a time when the Panthers needed him to be on the field the most.

Olsen is the first National Football League tight end to post three straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons. "We'll get with the doctors in the morning and kind of see what the plan of attack is".

"It showed we don't have to play our best to win", coach Ron Rivera said. With the star tight end out for many games the Panthers defense and offense will have to carry each other. The coach likes third-stringer Chris Manhertz too, although he wouldn't rule out adding another tight end to the roster.

Although he hasn't figured that much in the Panthers' passing game through two games this season, his absence is still a big blow to the Panthers, who are averaging just 174.5 passing yards per game. That won't be easy considering he was on the field for 93 percent of the snaps in 2016, while also amassing 80 receptions for 1,073 yards and three touchdowns.

Without being specific, McDermott said he and his staff are "looking at everything to change things up". It was nice to not see the franchise QB scrambling for his life like he did much of previous year, especially coming off offseason surgery to fix a partially torn rotator cuff. Dickson won't be able to replicate what Olsen brought to the offence, so the more likely scenario is that the Panthers spread the ball around even more. That's a game where Olsen might be back, if the current updates are taken at face value. "He's a diamond in the rough". This team is a true contender this year and all we can do right now is look forward to the game this Sunday against the Saints! The Panthers are the first team since the 1981 Bills to allow three or fewer points in their first two games and the first to not allow a touchdown through its first two games since the 2010 Baltimore Ravens. Carolina held San Francisco to 51 yards rushing.

That sounds cliché, but it's the way this group thinks under first-year defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who last week said, "This defense is still under construction". We need to come together.

"It's tough", Olsen said. The veteran tight end has been used sparingly in the offense, but he also isn't opposed to making plays as a receiver.
