Here we go again.
Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule told reporters running back Christian McCaffrey is dealing with a quad injury and he is currently on the team’s injury report. The Panthers held out their All-Pro running back from practice on Wednesday.
Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports provided more details:
After playing 50 straight games to start his NFL career, Christian McCaffrey was limited to just 10 games between 2020 and 2021. He notably led the league with 2,392 total yards and 19 scores in 2019.
McCaffrey, who is in his sixth NFL season, has amassed 300 total yards and one touchdown in three games. He’s rushed for 4.9 yards per carry and caught 10 passes for 57 yards.
The 26-year-old returned healthy for 2022 and played in his first two games, but he landed on the team’s injury report in the week leading up to a Sept. 25 matchup with the New Orleans Saints.
His constant injuries has caused major reactions online.
If McCaffrey has to miss any time, the remainder of the Panthers’ depth chart at running back consists of D’Onta Foreman, Chuba Hubbard and Raheem Blackshear.
