Colt McCoy leaves game with chest injury

It is officially a rout in Arizona.

The Panthers answered the Cardinals’ field goal with a touchdown and 2-point conversion and now lead 31-3 in the third quarter.

The Cardinals have had injury added to insult with backup Colt McCoy leaving the game with 5:17 remaining in the third quarter. He walked off the field — without signaling for help from the team’s medical personnel — and went directly into the medical tent after a sack by Shaq Thompson.

Third-string quarterback Chris Streveler entered the game.

The Cardinals announced McCoy has a chest injury.

The Cardinals began the day without Kyler Murray, who is missing his second consecutive game with an ankle injury. Arizona also doesn’t have star receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who is inactive with a hamstring injury.

The Panthers’ eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive was aided by a 33-yard pass interference penalty by Marco Wilson on a Cam Newton pass intended for DJ Moore.

Newton has run for a 2-yard touchdown and thrown for a 2-yard touchdown. He is 3-of-4 for 8 yards and a touchdown and has rushed for 6 yards and a touchdown on two carries.

  1. I don’t know what’s more puzzling: That the Cardinals could look so good last week without Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins, or so very bad today missing the same two guys.
    Two very good players, I know, but this is quite a swing of the pendulum. Sure, the 49ers are in a tailspin, but until today the Panthers hadn’t been putting much fear in anyone of late.
    Perhaps the Panthers are fired up by the return of Cam Newton, or maybe Christian McCaffrey
    is that big a difference-maker. Maybe it’s both. Either way, the Cardinals look awful.
