Olave sustained the injury during the Saints’ game against the Seahawks when Olave was hit hard and appeared to be unconscious for a moment. Now, he is ready to go after passing all the necessary tests.
Olave’s absence was felt as the Saints were already hurting in the receiver position. The Saints have been without Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry and Deonte Hardy, who were all injured on Sunday.
