  • McCaffrey rushed eight times for 35 yards and caught three of four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Vikings. McCaffrey entered Sunday's contest with good momentum, but a couple of factors combined to contribute toward his Week 14 dip. Not only was the rookie going against Minnesota's exceptional defense, but veteran Jonathan Stewart's 103-yard, three-touchdown performance meant he wasn't needed as much as usual. Fortunately for McCaffrey, a bounce-back outing could be in store, as an inferior Packers defense visits Carolina next Sunday.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Catches TD pass

    McCaffrey took six carries for 16 yards and caught five of six targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Saints. While unable to build on his rushing success from the previous three contests, McCaffrey was left wide open in the flats for a 21-yard touchdown en route to finishing second on the team in targets. There wasn't much volume to go around, as the Saints used their phenomenal running game to dominate possession. McCaffrey should have a better chance to pile up touches in Week 14, though efficiency is always a tough task against the Minnesota defense.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCaffrey (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday in New Orleans, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. McCaffrey began the week with an absence from practice, but limited sessions Thursday and Friday left head coach Ron Rivera feeling optimistic about the rookie's availability. With his status confirmed Sunday, McCaffrey will suit up against a Saints defense that has allowed 138.4 yards from scrimmage per game and six touchdowns to running backs in 11 outings this season.

  • McCaffrey (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Rapoport's report essentially supports what Panthers head coach Ron Rivera had suggested Friday following the team's final practice of the week. Though McCaffrey was limited to two practices this week due to the shoulder issue, it's not expected that he'll face a limited snap count in a key divisional matchup. In the two sides' previous meeting in Week 3, McCaffrey was limited to 16 yards on four carries, but had the best game of his young career as a receiver, hauling in nine of 11 targets for 101 yards.

  • Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said the team may wait until Saturday to make a decision on whether McCaffrey (shoulder) plays in Sunday's game against the Saints, David Newton of reports. While the final injury report hasn't been released, Rivera's comments all but assure McCaffrey will be listed as questionable. The running back returned to practice Thursday as a limited participant, and he's back on the field Friday in some capacity. Another update will be available when the injury report is released.
