Christian McCaffrey: "They say I’ll miss 4-6 weeks, I’m hoping a lot less"

“They say four to six weeks,” McCaffrey said. “That’s a challenge to me. Hopefully I can get back a lot earlier. I’m going to attack this.”

If the Panthers put McCaffrey on injured reserve, he’d miss at least three weeks but could return after that thanks to the NFL’s special injured reserve rules for this season. It seems unlikely McCaffrey could be back any sooner than that, but he’s hoping that he can beat the 4-6 week projection.

 

I'm hoping our new training staff and HC show that they can be smart with their star players and keep them out when they're injured until they're 100%, especially in a season like this one... I will be extremely disappointed if McC isn't put on IR and misses at least 3-4 games. Don't let him try to rush back, it would be incredibly stupid.

If they say 4 to 6 and we are already out of contention, put him on ice. He doesn’t do us any good to rack up mileage in this waste of a year. Don’t care what we are paying him, I’d rather he be healthy and not worn down for a new QB.

From the team stand point, that makes obvious sense...but what kind of effect would that have on the relationship between him and the coaching staff? You would assume he'd be extremely furious if he could still pay after just a few weeks, and the team places him on IR.  I'm on the same boat of just letting him rest until the end of the year, but not if it'll tarnish the long term relationship between him and the team.

I appreciate his zeal to get back quickly. I hope we have some adults on the team that realize we need to err on the side of caution with the guy that we paid to be our franchise player.

Cot dang it shut the hell up and sit down CMC, no need to wear him down and let this ‘linger for the next 3 years, just sit your ass down and don’t pull a cam Newton just because you want to play. This season is a damn loss anyway, go bang your gf and get ready for 2021

I don’t think they’ll IR him for the year or make him rest but if we are say 0-7 or 0-8 without him, which is very likely, the staff has to know there’s no point. If he’s back healthy and you want to play him, fine but Mike Davis sure as poo better be earning his top 10 RB salary. Split the carries and keep him fresh. There will be no records to achieve this year so splitting time and shutting him down early/with any reoccurrence should be easy.

If he's ready, let him play.  You let your fighter get lazy and he won't be there when you need him.  Mileage doesn't mean anything, look at Adrian Peterson.  Work ethic, mindset, determination mean a lot more and telling a healthy star RB he can't play is going to put a corkscrew in all 3.

we should have traded him when he had value

Right. He has no value anymore because of an ankle sprain..

Anyone who pays attention on this board knows why you want him traded.

Adrian Peterson and Frank Gore are outliers. Not a great example of what actually happens to typical NFL RB's.

If he is healthy you play him. Sends a bad message to other players to sit healthy guys because you don't want them to get hurt. We are still playing to win and should until we have no more games.
