Hopefully it isn't serious. I think he could be special and keep Rex Grossman from looking worse than he should this year. I'm sure it will be updated either tonight or tomorrow.

From what i heard (never saw him play), Olsen was looking pretty good for the Bears, too. Hopefully it's not too serious because that would be a significant hit to the offense's hopes of being good this year.

I watched the game, from the play, it didn't look super serious, but who knows. The canes fan in me hopes he's alright, but the bigger Vikings fan would be glad that the Bears would have one less threat.

It's a slight sprain, he will only be out a couple weeks.

He has looked really good in camp, catching everything thrown his way and giving safeties fits with his height/speed combo. He should definitely help out our passing game this year, we need him healthy.

Do you have a link, GRR? I thought the MRI was scheduled for today and I've seen some sprains come back as torn ligaments. (Got my fantasy draft tonight so they better have a definitive word by 7:30 ET! Smile )

Not good for the Bears. He has been looking very good so far in the preseason game, and Grossmans fav target. I hope he is alright.

No link yet....but two Chicago sports stations are reporting that the results of the MRI are back and he did not tear anything, it's just a sprain. 2-4 weeks at max. I'll keep my eyes peeled for an online confirmation on it and post a link when I find it.

That sucks he'll miss some season time. I knew he'd be great there, Rex loves to use a TE.

This really sucks for them. I was looking foward to seeing him play. Hopefully it isn't serious.

Injured in the preseason?!?! Who does he think he is, Chad Greenway???

Hahaha, seriously though I hope he's ok. It's never fun losing your first round draft pick before he even gets a chance to play.

Muahahaha!

I new all the Voodoo curses would eventually work Laughing

No im joking but as Buck said...it isnt fun loosing a rookie in the preseason, only ours was worse with Chad Greenway, luckily enough for the Bears, Olsen wont be gone for more then a couple weeks.
