Olsen faced a foot injury while playing against Arizona: Uncertainty for Seahawks

Greg Olsen

Seahawk’s veteran Greg Olsen seems to have a very bad ending of the 11th week due to a foot injury. In the fourth quarter of mighty ‘Thursday Night Football,’ Olsen faced a foot injury while playing against Arizona Cardinals. It happened just when Olsen was at the top of the high-end tactics for Seattle on its own 39-yard line and was hoping to make some big change in the next plays.

Seahawk coach Peter Carol gave his statement right after the game. He said, “It’s a little early, but he does have a fascia tear injury that he’s had before in his other foot. He knows exactly what it is and sometimes when it ruptures as it did, we think, it’s the best thing for a quick recovery, so we’ll see what happens and wish him the best and hopefully, he’ll make it back”

 

It was around 11:20 PM and Olsen went off with severe pain and was led to the medical tent with game officials. For the rest of the game, he was ruled out, unfortunately. 

Though Olsen is not a newbie to foot injuries as he ruptured the plantar fascia in his right foot in Week 14 of the 2018 season and was placed on Injured Reserve the following week. Prior to Seahawks’, he spent the previous nine seasons as a key piece to the Carolina Panthers’ offense.

For the year, Olsen had 21 receptions for 204 yards and a touchdown heading into Thursday night. Now a big question is, will the journey of scoring high stop right after the 11th week, or Oslen will keep it moving forward? Personally, I feel it’s a toilsome task to be done as Olsen faced a foot injury while playing against Arizona.

After the game, coach Carol told reporters through videoconference that Olsen suffered a plantar fascia injury in his foot and it’s unclear whether he’ll be able to play again this season.

Though they are hopeful to get the veteran back by the next game, they have to consider some names as replacements. For now, they are thinking about Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister to fill his shoes.

Seahawk fans might be praying for Olsen’s early recovery right now. Aren’t you?
