Greg Olsen likely headed to IR, could return this season

ESPN analyst Bill Polian, the former general manager of the Panthers and Bills, called this one right when he said McDermott knew how to frustrate Newton.

The Panthers moved to 2-0 with a 9-3 win over the Bills in Week 2, but in a game that featured very little offense Carolina lost a key playmaker. Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus missed time in the first half with an ankle injury and left tackle Cordy Glenn was sidelined in the second half also with an ankle injury.

And it's 6-0, on a pair of Graham Gano field goals.

Tight end Greg Olsen confirmed to reporters after the game that he had suffered a broken foot and will visit with a doctor on Monday to find out about a timetable for return.

The Panthers have not allowed a touchdown in two games after beating San Francisco 23-3 in Week 1.

Greg Olsen is about to miss significant playing time for the first time in his 11-year National Football League career.

Stephen Hauschka's 45-yard field goal with 11:09 remaining brought the Bills within 6-3.

Buffalo's late traction on offense followed a performance of less than 40-total yards in the first-half and zero-points through three quarters.

Carolina, on the other hand, had at least one play in Buffalo territory on all but one of their first half drives.

The Bills (1-1) were held to less 200 yards of offense on the day, virtually all of it coming through Taylor: 17/25 for 125 yards in the air, along with 55 more on the ground. Panthers C Ryan Kalil (sore neck) did not play and was replaced Tyler Larsen. The Panthers face the visiting New Orleans Saints next week.
