Two-time All-Pro tight end Greg Olsen will miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a broken foot. 

Per ESPN, Olsen was injured in the first half of the Carolina Panthers' Sunday's home opener against the Buffalo Bills.

"Olsen came out in the second half on crutches and wearing a walking boot on the foot. The team announced he would not return to the game, which the Panthers won 9-3.

"After the game, Olsen told reporters that his foot was broken. He is scheduled to see Dr. Robert Anderson on Monday."

"I am going to miss a lot of games," Olsen said after the game.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection last season became the first tight end in NFL history with three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons. Before the start of the season, the Panthers added $2 million in incentives to his contract based on receptions, receiving yards and postseason honors.

Olsen had one catch for 10 yards against Buffalo before the injury. He had two catches for 18 yards last week in a 23-3 season-opening victory at San Francisco.
