A day after Seahawks tight end Greg Olsen limped off the field with a foot injury, he promised it would not be the end of his season or his decorated career.
"I refuse to allow this to be my final moment," Olsen wrote on Twitter. "I will find a way to finish on my feet!"
And less than a month after that injury put him on the injured reserve list, Olsen is taking a big step towards backing up that promise, having been designated to return to practice on Wednesday.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said on Monday that Olsen had a chance to get back this week, and Wednesday's designation confirms he will practice this week. Olsen won't initially count towards the 53-man roster, but a roster move will have to be made to get him on the roster before he can return to game action.
"He's very, very positive and upbeat about the fact that he has a chance to get back here very soon," Carroll said Monday. "Maybe this week or next week. I don't know what to tell you until we see him."
