Minnesota's general manager Rick Spielman is unhappy with FOX's decision to go with Greg Olsen in the broadcasting booth for the Vikings–Rams game this Sunday, reports NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Olsen, who is on injured reserve with a foot injury for the Carolina Panthers, can return in Week 12 against the Jets. The Vikings play the Panthers on Dec. 10.

Spielman reportedly said that he thinks its inappropriate for him to broadcast the Vikings game, and a request for Olsen to work a different Week 11 game was reportedly denied.

"We are excited for the opportunity to make this Sunday's broadcast fun and insightful with Pro Bowler Greg Olsen," FOX said in a statement provided to Sports Illustrated. "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."

Google Assistant can now broadcast messages through your Google Home devices

  Google Assistant can now broadcast messages through your Google Home devices Last month, Google announced that users with Google Assistant would be able to broadcast messages via Google Home devices, and now that time is here. You can use Assistant on your smartphone to send messages to all Assistant-enabled speakers within your home, and with certain commands, like announcing it’s time for dinner, the Assistant will ring a dinner bell on every speaker. You don’t even have to be home to broadcast; the feature will work from anywhere with a cell connection, which is a nice touch.

Olsen , who is currently on injured reserve but is on track for a return to action later this month, is taking advantage of his off week by joining the FOX broadcast booth for the Los Angeles Rams against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, according to Bill Voth of Panthers.com.

“I don't know how much inside info they're going to give me,” Olsen said on the Panthers' website. “I don't know how many production meetings I'll be allowed in considering we play them a few weeks later.”
