McCaffrey (foot) practiced fully Thursday, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports. McCaffrey has had limitations on his practice reps for three consecutive weeks at this point, but they were lifted on each occasion. As a result, his foot issue won't impact his availability for the Panthers' Week 11 divisional matchup with the Falcons, who have conceded 124.9 yards from scrimmage per game and nine touchdowns to running backs in nine contests this season.
McCaffrey didn't practice Wednesday due to a foot injury, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. McCaffrey kicked off last week with a similar listing, only a knee issue was to blame for the absence on that occasion. On a positive note, coach Ron Rivera told Reed that the Panthers are being cautious with McCaffrey and "giving him a breather" Wednesday. Considering McCaffrey is averaging 25.9 touches per game, that approach is warranted, but fantasy managers will want to circle back and make sure the health concern doesn't linger.
McCaffery isn't participating in Wednesday's practice, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. McCaffery was held out of last Wednesday's practice while tending to a knee issue, but he managed to ramp up his reps throughout the week and handle his usual workload during Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Packers. The 23-year-old's status will once again bear monitoring if he's listed with an injury designation on Wednesday's practice report, though there isn't yet any reason to worry about his availability for Week 11. He's on tap for a favorable matchup at home against the Falcons.
McCaffrey carried 20 times for 108 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-18 loss to the Packers. He also caught six of seven targets for an additional 33 yards. McCaffrey excelled against a beatable Green Bay run defense, averaging 5.4 yards per carry while delivering his sixth 100-yard rushing performance of the season. He also finished third on the team in receptions and fourth in targets, though his 33 receiving yards were below his typical output. McCaffrey's 14th touchdown of the season ties him with Aaron Jones for the most in the NFL, and he'll look to add to his impressive numbers next Sunday at home against the Falcons.
McCaffrey (knee) doesn't have a designation on the Panthers' final injury report for Sunday's game in Green Bay. McCaffrey closed out the week with back-to-back limited practices, noting afterward that he's feeling great and will be ready for Sunday's game. With the Panthers clawing for a playoff spot, the star running back should see usual workload in game No. 9 of what's shaping up as a historically productive fantasy season. With 246.4 PPR points, McCaffrey is on pace to top LaDainian Tomlinson's record of 481.1 from 2006.
