Christian McCaffrey Not Expected To Play Against Lions

Nov 18, 2020 3:44 PM

The Carolina Panthers don't expect to have Christian McCaffrey on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

McCaffrey is expected to miss a second straight game with a shoulder injury suffered in his first game back after missing six straight with a high ankle sprain.

He hasn't practiced since suffering the injury late in a Nov. 8 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The decision to basically rule McCaffrey out came two days after Matt Rhule said he was optimistic the NFL's highest-paid back would play this week.

Christian McCaffrey Returns To Practice; Remains Iffy For Thursday

Oct 27, 2020 9:07 AM

Christian McCaffrey returned to practice with the Carolina Panthers on Monday for the first time in five weeks.

It remains to be seen if McCaffrey will play on Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons.

"It's a possibility,'' coach Matt Rhule said. "That's sort of out of my hands. I'm hopeful that will happen.''

McCaffrey did not participate in Monday's light workout and would have to go through a full practice on Tuesday or Wednesday for the team to consider taking him off injured reserve.

"If you know Christian, he wants to play,'' Rhule said.

Christian McCaffrey Hoping To Return Sooner Than 4-6 Week Timeline

Sep 22, 2020 8:46 AM

Christian McCaffrey is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after suffering an ankle injury on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The timeline makes him a candidate for the short-term injured reserve, but the Carolina Panthers star is hoping to return sooner than the anticipated timeline.

"That's a challenge to me," McCaffrey said. "And I'm gonna attack it, like I attack anything else."

The Panthers signed the running back to a four-year, $64 million extension with more than $31.8 million guaranteed this offseason.
