Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey left Sunday’s game with a walking boot on his left ankle and head coach Matt Rhule gave an update on McCaffrey’s condition on Monday morning.

Rhule told reporters that X-rays on McCaffrey’s ankle came back negative and the belief is that he avoided a serious injury during a 33-10 loss to the Dolphins. McCaffrey will have more tests on Monday to give the team a fuller picture of the situation.

The Panthers have a bye this week, so McCaffrey will have two weeks to heal before Carolina returns to action against the Falcons in Week 14.

McCaffrey missed five games earlier this season with a hamstring injury and he had 10 carries for 35 yards before getting hurt on Sunday.

  1. Guy is always hurt. It’s because he’s really a 3rd down/scatback but thinks he’s an every down back. Just isn’t big enough and durable enough for that.

  2. At some point, their owner won’t see the value of keeping an oft-injured RB on a roster that will be looking for a franchise QB. Too bad injuries define this guy.

  3. They should have traded him before the season and gotten a couple firsts for him. Now he is down to one mid-to-lower first rounder.
