Greg Olsen’s status for the Panthers’ first game of the season is up in the air.
The Carolina tight end has been placed on the team’s injury report and is listed as questionable with a back issue for the Panthers’ home game against the Cowboys.

It’s a huge blow for the Panthers, who were hoping to have a healthy Olsen ready to go this season. He missed nine regular-season games last year with a foot fracture.
Backup tight end Chris Manhertz is also questionable, which means rookie Ian Thomas could get the start Sunday afternoon.
