Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey left the stadium in a walking boot after injuring his left ankle, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

McCaffrey did not speak to the media after the 33-10 loss as he was seeking treatment on his injury.

Coach Matt Rhule confirmed postgame that McCaffrey rolled his ankle in the first half.

McCaffrey had 10 carries for 35 yards in the first half but did not have a touch in the second half as he played sparingly.

He has played only 10 games over the past two seasons, missing 18 with injuries. McCaffrey had a hamstring injury that kept him out earlier this season.

McCaffrey missed time last season with a high-ankle sprain and shoulder and thigh injuries.

The Panthers are on their bye week this week, so McCaffrey will have some time to rehab before the team’s next game in Week 14.

  1. As olde roddy stewie used to sing …. some guys have all the luck huh ??? … just a bad year or is usable time on the body clock rapidly running out for a good guy but well ya sure can’t help the club from the injury tub my oh my.

  2. Trade value is plummeting. Number one rb in the nfl for about 3 games per season. No matter how great his play,he has little value when spending the majority of every season unavailable. Reminds me of Sean Lee.

  3. Remember, he opted out of his college bowl game to stay healthy and prepare for the combine. Can a pro athlete over-train and make his body too fragile?
