Christian McCaffrey Injured

Recommended Posts

From Panthers.com

 

The Panthers played the final 13:25 of Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers without running back Christian McCaffrey, who suffered an ankle injury. 

McCaffrey limped off the field after scoring his second touchdown of the day, a 7-yarder on fourth-and-2 that cut Carolina's deficit to 21-14 early in the fourth quarter. 

Athletic trainers then re-wrapped McCaffrey's right ankle, but he never returned. 

"I know he came out in the first quarter at one point, and then at the end of the game they said he was out with a lower leg injury," said head coach Matt Rhule, who didn't have an update on the extent of McCaffrey's injury after the game. 

"I haven't seen the doctors yet to tell me where he's at." 

Before he was sidelined, McCaffrey had 18 rushing attempts for 59 yards and a pair of scores. He also caught four passes for 29 yards. 

McCaffrey was replaced by Mike Davis, who finished with one carry for 1 yard and eight receptions for 74 yards. 

Sunday was the 50th game of McCaffrey's career. He has not missed a game in his three-plus seasons.

It looked like they were trying to get him back in the game for a while, makes me think it is not a high ankle sprain at least.

There have been a ton of injuries today at every position. The Niners and Broncos lost like half their starters...

If there ever were a season to be injured, then it would be this one. However, I certainly hope that he is all right and comes back next game.

This has been an awful year for injuries so far. Makes you wonder if its from less training camp and preseason for players to get acclimated.

I'd love to see McC keep up his ironman streak and see him lace them up every game this year, but if he's even slightly limited we should play it safe and sit him and just take the losses.

It’s 2020. It was never going to be a good year for literally anything.

I know. But think a little deeper. CMC has had a massive workload the past 2 years. RBs take some of the most hits in the league and they wear out quickly. There are outliers. I hope he is one of them because he can be an awesome asset if we get a stud qb on a rookie deal and beef up this oline.  I know this conversation has happened a lot and I love cmc and he is awesome to watch but I expect him to start getting knicked up a lot these next couple of years.

He can sit for the rest of the season AFAIC. No reason to rush him back in that game or any game this year.
