Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen walked to the locker room in the closing moments of the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. After the game, he confirmed to reporters that his foot was broken. 

"I broke my foot," Olsen said. "It's tough. It sucks."

Olsen was seen back on the sideline with a boot on his right foot and crutches, according to SI's Jonathan Jones.

There was no contact between Olsen and Bills safety Jordan Poyer just before Olsen started limping off the field. 

Ed Dickson has filled in for Olsen as Cam Newton's tight end target.

Olsen caught two passes for eight yards in Carolina's season opener. For fantasy owners, he did not make much of an impact aside from a 17-yard pass that set up a field goal.

Last month, the Panthers added $2 million in incentives to Olsen's contract. He is signed through 2018 and has a base salary of $6.5 million. He has not missed a game since 2007.
