The Carolina Panthers could get an offensive boost when they play the New York Giants. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that All-Pro tight end Greg Olsen might make his return from injury this Sunday.Olsen fractured his foot in the Panthers week one victory over the Dallas Cowboys. It was the same foot which had been surgically repaired following a Jones fracture at the start of the 2017 season. Olsen managed to avoid surgery and the injured reserve and his return could provide a major boost to a Panthers passing offense which as relied heavily on running back Christian McCaffrey. If he is able to return this week and be anything like the Greg Olsen with whom the NFL has become familiar [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/sterling-shepard-jersey]Womens Sterling Shepard Jersey[/url] , that would be bad news for a Giants’ defense which has been 22nd in the league against tight ends. The good news, for the Giants anyway [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/evan-engram-jersey]Authentic Evan Engram Jersey[/url] , is that risk of re-injury makes a week six return more likely for Olsen. As well as the fact that foot injuries can be problematic for receivers, and the original fracture is similar to the ones once suffered by Hakeem Nicks and Dez Bryant. That being said [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/eli-manning-jersey]Authentic Eli Manning Jersey[/url] , it would be foolish for the defense to plan for anything other than Olsen to be playing and at full strength. Left tackle Trent Williams helped spring running back Adrian Peterson with a big block in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Giants, but it may be Ty Nsekhe opening holes for Washington the rest of the way.Williams is out with a thumb injury and Pam Oliver of FOX Sports said he was downgraded after initially being called questionable to return to action. The team wasn’t missing him through much of their first two drives after halftime.Dustin Hopkins doinked a 53-yard field goal in off an upright to end the first Washington possession of the third quarter with a 10-3 lead and they were driving for more points on a short field [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/connor-barwin-jersey]Womens Connor Barwin Jersey[/url] , but Giants safety Landon Collins knocked the ball away from Adrian Peterson. Linebacker Olivier Vernon recovered the fumble and returned it into Washington territory.Washinton got that short field thanks to D.J. Swearinger‘s second interception of the day. Swearinger picked off Eli Manning on a deep ball in the general vicinity of Odell Beckham and returned the ball to the Giants’ 40-yard-line. The reprieve offered by Collins and Vernon went nowhere, though [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/ray-ray-armstrong-jersey]Authentic Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey[/url] , because Evan Engram let a pass go through his hands on fourth down.
