  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Sits out another practice

    McCaffrey (thigh) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice report, Ellis L. Williams of The Charlotte Observer reports. The thigh injury kept McCaffrey off the practice field for the second day in a row, but head coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday that he wasn't concerned about the star tailback's availability for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. It's unclear if Rhule's stance has changed on the heels of another absence from practice, but more resolution on McCaffrey's status should come Friday, when Carolina holds its final Week 4 practice. If the thigh injury sidelines McCaffrey this weekend or results in him being limited, Chuba Hubbard and D'Onta Foreman would take on expanded roles out of the Panthers backfield.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Not spotted Thursday

    McCaffrey (thigh) wasn't present at the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. McCaffrey officially was a non-participant Wednesday due to a thigh concern, which appears as if it'll force a second straight absence to begin Week 4 prep. Coach Matt Rhule told Newton on Wednesday that the Panthers aren't concerned about McCaffrey's health, but his status still should be watched to ensure he'll be available Sunday against the Cardinals.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Bothered by thigh, not practicing

    McCaffrey didn't practice Wednesday due to a thigh issue, though his injury isn't believed to be serious, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. McCaffrey usually rests on Wednesdays anyway, but this week he actually has an injury, albeit a minor one. Head coach Matt Rhule suggested McCaffrey could return to practice as soon as Thursday, which would likely erase most of the concern about his ability to play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. If the injury were to threaten McCaffrey's availability, the Panthers would turn to Chuba Hubbard and D'Onta Foreman in the backfield.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Tops century mark again

    McCaffrey rushed 25 times for 108 yards and caught two of four targets for seven yards in Sunday's 22-14 win over the Saints. McCaffrey fueled the Panthers offense with his production on the ground, topping 100 yards for the second straight game. He also racked up a season-high 27 total touches and has increased his tally each week so far. Although he still sports just one touchdown on the campaign, McCaffrey has managed to produce despite Carolina's offense having yet to click under quarterback Baker Mayfield.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Avoids injury report

    McCaffrey (ankle) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Saints, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. McCaffrey was listed as limited in Thursday's practice due to an ankle injury, but it appears he's now over the minor issue. The 26-year-old is coming off a 100-yard rushing performance versus the Jets in Week 2, and it looks like he's at full health with a tough Week 3 matchup against the Saints on deck. D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard are available for the Panthers as reserve options behind McCaffrey.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Limited by ankle Thursday

    McCaffrey (ankle) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. McCaffrey got his typical veteran rest day Wednesday, but lingering stiffness in his ankle caused the Panthers to place a cap on his reps one day later. The team still expects him of suit up Sunday against the Saints, but his status now should be watched closely to see if he enters the weekend with a designation. D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard are the running backs directly behind McCaffrey on the depth chart.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Tops 100 yards on ground

    McCaffrey rushed 15 times for 102 yards and caught four of five targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Giants. McCaffrey ripped off a 49-yard run to begin the fourth quarter, helping him top the century mark on the day. Although he didn't find the end zone like in Week 1, McCaffrey was much more productive from a yardage standpoint Sunday. While it still wasn't enough to get the Panthers their first win of the season, McCaffrey carries some decent momentum into what could be a tough Week 3 matchup versus the Saints.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Scores despite quiet day

    McCaffrey rushed 10 times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Browns. He also caught all four of his targets for 24 yards. McCaffrey jumped over the pile for a one-yard touchdown during the second quarter, but his mere five touches in the first half was a surprisingly low total. With the Panthers offense getting going more in the second half, McCaffrey had a few nice gains. Overall, though, his output wasn't anything special to begin the campaign. He'll strive for an improved performance in Week 2 versus the Giants.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Ready for Sunday

    McCaffrey was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Cleveland, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. McCaffrey managed full practices throughout the week, unburdened by the cut to his shin he suffered during practice Thursday morning. He'll start his season against the Browns, facing a defense that looks weakest right up the middle, with two projected starters at DT (Jordan Elliott, Taven Bryan) that mostly have been backups to this point in their respective careers. Behind those two, the Browns have 2021 third-round pick Tommy Togiai and 2022 fourth-rounder Perrion Winfrey, both seemingly drafted for pass-rush potential more so than run-stuffing. Each of the team's four DTs is listed at 303 pounds or lighter, though the Panthers don't exactly have a dominant offensive line to best take advantage of the potential mismatch. Regardless, McCaffrey should stay busy, be it on the ground, through the air or both.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Cuts shin, but practices fully

    McCaffrey was cut on the shin by a teammate's cleat Thursday, but head coach Matt Rhule said the running back was still a full participant in practice and fit in all of his normal work, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. Though the Panthers chose to add McCaffrey to the injury report as a result, his ability to take every practice rep Thursday suggests he'll avoid taking a designation into Sunday's season opener versus the Browns. Coming off two injury-shortened seasons, McCaffrey's durability has come into question, but Rhule has provided no indication that the Panthers plan to dramatically reduce the talented back's workloads and snap counts in 2022 after he stayed healthy throughout the summer.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Next game action slated for Week 1

    McCaffrey is not in line to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Bills, Darin Gantt of the Panthers official site reports. The same applies to wide receivers Robbie Anderson (quad), Andre Roberts and Brandon Zylstra, along with tight ends Ian Thomas and Colin Thompson, as well as running back Spencer Brown. As the report notes, McCaffrey hasn't played in the preseason in years, with the Panthers erring on the side of caution here with their franchise back, whose next game action will occur in Week 1 against the Browns.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Likely to be held out Friday

    McCaffrey is unlikely to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Bills, though many of the Panthers other starters will suit up, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Coming off consecutive injury-marred seasons, McCaffrey likely will be held out of a third straight exhibition despite enjoying an injury-free summer. His absence also gives the Panthers a chance to evaluate prospective backups D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard, though neither is expected to see much work behind McCaffrey when the Panthers host the Browns in Week 1.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Could sit out final exhibition

    McCaffrey is a candidate to be rested in Friday's preseason game against the Bills, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Newton notes that for the time being, the Panthers appear to be trending toward playing a number of their starters in the contest, but McCaffrey could be held out of the contest. Given the extensive time McCaffrey has missed due to injuries the past two seasons, Carolina has extra incentive to keep him healthy in advance of Week 1.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Not playing Saturday

    McCaffrey will not play in Saturday's preseason contest against the Commanders. This shouldn't come as a surprise given the Panthers want to be extra cautious with their star back. Expect the likes of Chuba Hubbard and D'Onta Foreman to see the majority of the first-team reps as the Panthers kick off the QB competition between Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold, who both are expected to play at least a series in Saturday's contest.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Normal preseason routine

    Coach Matt Rhule said Monday that he doesn't expect any changes to McCaffrey's preseason routine, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. The 26-year-old running back missed 13 games in 2020 and 10 more in 2021, after starting his career with three consecutive 16-game seasons, including a legendary 2019 in which he outscored every other player by at least 55 PPR points (and every RB by at least 155). That upside has McCaffrey going top 5 in fantasy leagues this summer, even with the injury concerns and Carolina's shaky situation at quarterback, where Baker Mayfield will challenge Sam Darnold for the starting job. McCaffrey hasn't touched the ball in a preseason game since 2019 and has stayed healthy throughout training camp each year, with all his injuries instead occurring during regular-season action (always a risk when handling so many snaps and touches). The good news is that he didn't have to rehab from surgery this offseason, and it seems he's been healthy since the spring (or even earlier) after ending 2021 on injured reserve with a sprained ankle. The Panthers signed D'Onta Foreman to compete with Chuba Hubbard for the backup RB job, but neither figures to see many carries behind McCaffrey when the Panthers host the Browns in their regular-season opener Sunday, Sept. 11.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Looks good at OTAs

    McCaffrey (ankle) looked good while participating in the Panthers' OTAs on Tuesday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. McCaffrey continues to avoid setbacks this offseason after dealing with various injuries during the 2021 campaign. The 2017 first-round pick has only played in 10 games over the past two seasons after not missing a contest over his first three years in the NFL. McCaffrey appears to be healthy heading into the 2022 campaign, and the Panthers intend to keep it that way by holding him out of preseason games again and possibly taking a different approach with him during practices, per Joe Person of The Athletic.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Participating in offseason program

    McCaffrey (ankle) is participating in offseason workouts. It's another hint McCaffrey didn't have too much trouble this offseason with any of the various injuries that impacted his 2021 campaign. He played only 10 games over the past two years, but he does seem to be in good health at the moment, and he averaged 112.1 total yards and 5.4 catches per game last season despite exiting early with injuries in two of his seven appearances. Apart from health, the biggest concern for McCaffrey is poor QB play, as the Panthers still are in the process of trying to upgrade on Sam Darnold.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Restructures deal with Carolina

    McCaffrey (ankle) restructured his contract with the Panthers on Tuesday, opening up about $5.5 million in salary cap space for 2022, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The Panthers wanted to free up some cap space to maintain their flexibility for the offseason, and McCaffrey's contract was a natural candidate for a restructure. The 25-year-old is coming off his second consecutive injury-riddled season, as he was limited to seven games in 2021 by hamstring and ankle injuries and totaled 99 carries for 442 yards plus 37 receptions for 343 yards, with only two total touchdowns.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Shifts from COVID-19 list to IR

    The Panthers removed McCaffrey (ankle) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. McCaffrey already was ruled out for the season with the sprained left ankle, but he'll head back to injured reserve following a positive test for the virus last Tuesday. Chuba Hubbard and Ameer Abdullah will continue to split the Panthers' backfield reps for the rest of the campaign. According to Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer, McCaffrey won't need surgery to address the ankle injury, so he should be ready to go for OTAs after a few months of rest and rehab.

  • Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Moves from IR to COVID-19 list

    McCaffrey (ankle) was shifted from injured reserve to the reserve/COVID-19 list after the running back tested positive for the virus Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. McCaffrey's season is over due to his second stint on IR, the result of an ankle issue, but he'll now stay away from the Panthers' facilities until he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols. In the meantime, the team will continue to roll with Chuba Hubbard and Ameer Abdullah out of the backfield.
