Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera is hopeful he'll be ready to play this Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
The veteran tight end still has to undergo tests but could return to practice as early as Wednesday. Despite the positive outlook surrounding the tight end, he's not out of the woods just yet. This injury is still lingering as he's admitted he'll have to get a second surgery at some point.

This week will be a huge sign when it comes to Olsen's production the rest of the season. If he can't compete at a top level like normal, he might consider shutting himself down and opting for surgery sooner than later.
You don't need another Olsen injury in your life, so keep close tabs on the tight end's developing status this week.
