Panthers' Olsen leaves Buccaneers game with foot injury

Panthers' Olsen leaves Buccaneers game with foot injury

Carolina lost tight end Greg Olsen to an injured right foot early in the second quarter and did not return.

At 6-6, the Panthers aren't out of the race entirely, but it's not looking good. Carolina's defense, long known for its knack for creating takeaways and pressuring the quarterback, has forced just one turnover in the past four games and is tied for 19th in the league in sacks. The Panthers also fired defensive line coach Brady Hoke and assistant secondary/cornerbacks coach Jeff Imamura.

The Panthers haven't won since beating Tampa Bay 42-28 on November 4.

To us, that reads like a bit of a demotion for Washington, who was promoted from defensive line coach to coordinator earlier this year, after Steve Wilks was hired by the Arizona Cardinals. He re-broke it this year, did not have surgery and came back quickly.

"His track record speaks for itself". "Y'all got to remember your first time doing something". You weren't ideal and somebody had to help you. "And when I look back at this game, it really comes down to myself protecting the football. It's an opportunity for me to work even closer with him to help him out as we go forward", he adds.

Rivera's focus on the secondary is to be expected as the Panthers have struggled in that area as of late.

Olsen was carted off the field after leaving the game with a foot injury. McCaffrey's 53-yard run down the left sideline was the key play to that drive. Now, it appears his season is over. The unit has not snagged an interception since and gave up five passing touchdowns in a Thursday Night Football contest at Pittsburgh.

On the play, outside linebacker Lavonte David deflected Newton's pass intended for D.J. Moore into the air, where Adams corralled the ball and returned it 16 yards to the Carolina 20. "That kept us off-balance", Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. The moves were announced after Rivera met with new owner David Tepper and general manager Marty Hurney on Monday morning, December 3, 2018.

Pressed to answer whether or not Tepper has put him on notice or given any ultimatums, Rivera stated that he was not going to talk about what he and Tepper talk about.

But no one on Sunday was blaming Rivera, the NFL Coach of the Year in 2013 and 2015, or the coaching staff.

Up next, the Panthers take on the up and down Browns. If the Panthers' road woes continue and they leave Berea with another loss, it will be interesting to see what, if any, further changes will be made.
