Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is ecstatic to have Greg Olsen back on the football field.And he wants Olsen to remain on the field [url=http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-christian-mccaffrey-jersey]Cheap Christian McCaffrey Jersey[/url] , so much that Newton said he asked his spiritual grandmother Hattie-Lou Newton to pray for the tight end's continued health."That would be great," Olsen said with a laugh, "I can use all of the help I can get."The 33-year-old Olsen practiced Thursday and is expected t[url=http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/luke-kuechly-jersey-authentic][img]http://www.sndpic.com//nike_nfl_jerseys/nike_carolina_panthers/nike_panthers_203.jpg[/img][/url]o return to action Sunday against the Redskins after missing three games with a broken foot.Olsen was one of the most durable players in the NFL during his first 10 seasons, never missing a game due to injury while playing in 158 consecutive games. But he's missed 12 of the last 18 games since first fracturing his right foot in Week 2 of last season. He re-broke the same bone in Carolina's season opener against the Cowboys and hasn't played since.That has left the three-time Pro Bowl selection frustrated and eager to get back on the field — although not enough to rush back from the injury."I wouldn't be out there if I didn't think I could help the team," Olsen said. "Me being out there and not being able to move, that doesn't do us any good. This isn't about me just desperately wanting to play. I want to play and I expect to play like I am accustomed to."Coach Ron Rivera said barring any setbacks before Sunday there won't be any restrictions on Olsen's playing time.Rivera said Olsen moved around well Thursday, and participated fully in practice. Like his teammates, Olsen hasn't been able to go full speed yet this week because heavy rains the past two days in the Charlotte area have caused the fields to be wet and soggy.Olsen brings yet another option in the passing game for Newton, who just got second-year wide receiver Curtis Samuel back from a minor heart procedure last week."The band is back," Newton said with a wide smile.Nobody knows what Olsen means to the Panthers more than Newton.Olsen has always been his favorite target. He became the first tight end in NFL history to record three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons from 2014-16."He can't (get injured) no more," Newton said. "... His play-making ability on the field is just second to none. Having Greg back, keeping him healthy along with the talent that we already have [url=http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-kawann-short-jersey]Cheap Kawann Short Jersey[/url] , it presents a lot of problems for the opposing team."Newton said Olsen also helps him call out plays in the huddle, something that fans don't always see.The eighth-year quarterback said many calls in the NFL these days are simply too long and contain too much verbiage, and suggested some need to be simplified one-word phrases like "Panther," or even "Tepper" or "Rivera," referring to the surnames of the team's owner and head coach."Greg is a very intellectual person that helps me out with play-calling," Newton said. "I call him 'the dictator' in the huddle because I really have problems with calling plays — even in year eight. And he kind of helps me."Newton went on to say "calling a play shouldn't be a paragraph. ... I will be in the huddle and I'm already tired and I don't have time to be saying this, that and the third. (It should be) ready, ready break. You only get so much time."Olsen downplayed Newton's comments Thursday, saying the quarterback "exaggerated a little bit" in how much he helps him."Cam has it under control," Olsen said. "... Sometimes in the heat of the battle I will help piece some things together. But I think Cam was just being generous." The Panthers are traveling to FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland to play Washington on Sunday.This is a game with completely different stakes for each side, even though both teams currently sit at second place in their respective divisions. Carolina has struggled in each of its wins, but sits in good position at 3-1 to challenge for the NFC South title or [url=http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-greg-olsen-jersey]Cheap Greg Olsen Jersey[/url] , at worst, a wild card spot. Washington is in a division that would be a race for the bottom if the Giants hadn’t jumped the gun and already built an insurmountable tally of losses. They need a win against the Panthers to have any hope of catching the Eagles whereas the Panthers need a solid showing to build confidence before running into the toughest half of their 2018 schedule. Here are 3 things you should know before the game kicks off:FedEx Field has a terrible reputationThe artificial surface that games are played on in Maryland is routinely criticized as among the worst in the NFL. It may be second only to Oakland, which is an actual baseball stadium. Washington, as with many of its chronic problems, has only itself to blame. What does this mean for Sunday?Expect Greg Olsen’s return, if it happens, to exceed the definition of ‘limited’. Their field has long been a magnet for injuries and the Panthers won’t want to risk Olsen breaking his foot for a third time in the last year.You can’t expect the Panthers to be bailed out by any late game, long distance heroics by Graham Gano. Gano spent his first three years in the NFL as Washington’s kicker. He was neither the first nor the last kicker to complain about the field conditions in that stadium. His complaints are backed up by numbers —so here is your trigger warning for documented facts— as he has made only 73% of his 45 career field goal attempts in FedEx Field, a full 9% lower than his overall career rate.The Washington offense wants to make up for last weekThey put up 9 points against the Saints. Sure, they were on the road, but they were playing the Saints. New Orleans wouldn’t know a defense if it walked up to Drew Brees and started catching passes for an absurd number of yards and touchdowns despite not having much talent. Don’t let Ron Rivera read this, but Washington might be the safest team to nurse a one score lead against. They know they need to be better and the Panthers are always happy to let underdogs punch above their weight class.This should be an easy week of prep for the Panthers. They are coming off of three weeks against Julio Jones, AJ Green [url=http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-devin-funchess-jersey]http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-devin-funchess-jersey[/url] , and Odell Beckham, Jr. I just googled Washington’s receivers and I still can’t tell you much about who they are. I’ve heard of Jamison Crowder, but he is their fifth receiver by yards this year. He’s behind a tight end and two running backs. This should terrify you as a Panthers fan. The Giants are hapless and captained by a quarterback who peaked 7 years ago. Eli Manning looked poised and accurate last week. The Panthers are known for finding a way to keep a game interesting long after it should have been over. This Washington team should have the drive to take advantage of whatever opportunities the Panthers leave on the field.Stop me if you’ve heard this before, Washington is a little banged up right nowTheir top three wide receivers, Paul Richardson, Crowder, and Josh Doctson are all questionable this week. Doctson missed Monday night’s game with a heel injury that is expected to plague him all season. Richardson and Crowder didn’t even participate in a walk-through practice Wednesday. Adrian Peterson is also listed as questionable, though he is expected to play through ankle, knee, and shoulder injuries.Washington’s defense is mostly in tact. In spite of rolling out the red carpet for the Saints last week, the unit is still 5th overall in total defense in the NFL. Josh Norman will be looking to make amends for some big miscues in coverage last week that opened up the field for Drew Brees. Let’s not forget how familiar Norman is with the Panthers risk-adverse offense. A new coordinator doesn’t mean that much when Norv Turner was hired to run the same offense that Mike Shula was fired over.
