The Panthers didn’t have running back Christian McCaffrey on the practice field Wednesday, but it was because of injury precaution rather than a response to an injury.
McCaffrey had a rest day as the Panthers began their on-field preparations for the Giants. McCaffrey ran 10 times for 33 yards and a touchdown in the 26-24 loss to the Browns last weekend. He also caught four passes for 24 yards.
Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that Wednesdays will likely be a rest day for McCaffrey throughout the year.
Defensive end Marquis Haynes (hip) was the only other player out of practice on Wednesday.
Left tackle Taylor Moton was listed as a limited participant due to a knee injury. Moton has not missed a game since being drafted in the second round in 2017.
Linebackers Frankie Luvu (shoulder) and Brandon Smith (thigh) were also limited in Wednesday’s practice.
