NFL Network’s Tom Pelissaro is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings requested FOX yank current Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen from his role as a color analyst for Sunday’s game between the Vikings and Los Angeles Rams.

Olsen is dipping his toe in broadcast waters while recovering from an injury but is expected to return to the field by the time the Vikings play the Panthers.

Olsen will not be allowed in the production meeting or walkthrough

FOX Vice President of Communications Eddie Motl released the following statement:

“We are excited for the opportunity to make this Sunday’s broadcast fun and insightful with Pro Bowler Greg Olsen. We fully respect the Vikings concerns and will limit the amount of pre-game access allowed to Greg. We look forward to welcoming him in the broadcast booth and giving viewers a unique perspective this Sunday,”
