Christian McCaffrey Injury Update: Panthers Star Not Expected To Play Vs. Bucs

The Panthers star suffered a shoulder injury in Week 9


If you own Christian McCaffrey in fantasy football, get ready for some bad news.

The Carolina Panthers running back likely will miss Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday, citing sources.

McCaffrey, who missed over a month with an ankle injury, returned this past Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs but left the game with a shoulder issue.

Here’s Schefter’s report:

Given the Panthers’ 3-6 record, the organization likely will be extra cautious about rushing McCaffrey back.

Veteran Mike Davis figures to resume lead-back duties while McCaffrey is sidelined.
