"I haven't missed a game in a long time, so on one hand it sucks, but on one hand I am very thankful that I have been as lucky as I have been," said Olsen, who was in a boot after the game.
Olsen is the first NFL tight end to post three straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons.
He felt "something pop" in his foot in the first half while running a route. He tried to go back in but knew something was wrong.
