Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 13 times for 69 yards and caught 7 of 8 targets for 89 more in Sunday's loss to the Rams. His 158 total yards constituted 77.8% of Carolina's total net yards for the game. No one else on the team collected more than 22 yards. Starting QB P.J. Walker managed just 60 passing yards for the game, with Jacob Eason coming on for 59 more (primarily thanks to a 49-yard completion to McCaffrey). We'll see about Carolina's QB situation for Week 7. D.J. Moore was the only other Panther to see more than 2 targets. He caught 3 of 7 for just 7 yards.

The Panthers are listening to trade offers for RB Christian McCaffrey, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. But "a deal might not be easy to complete" because the Panthers are prepared to keep McCaffrey for 2023 "if they don't receiver a suitable offer," Schefter adds. Carolina has reportedly already declined 2 offers for McCaffrey. We'd consider a trade unlikely to happen but will track the situation through the November 1 trade deadline. If McCaffrey was dealt, the Panthers would be left with RBs D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard.

The Panthers fired HC Matt Rhule. His former team is sitting at 1-4 after going 10-23 over his first 2 seasons. Carolina's ranks in total yards: 21st, 30th and 32nd. Defensive Pass Game Coordinator/Secondary Coach Steve Wilks will take over as interim HC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He was HC for the Cardinals' 3-13 2018 season. It sounds like OC Ben McAdoo will be sticking around. We're not expecting the change to help Carolina's floundering offense (although it can't hurt).

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey entered Sunday questionable with a thigh injury he had to test pregame. But he wound up with normal playing time and 17 of the 18 RB opportunities for Carolina in the loss to the Cardinals. McCaffrey managed only 27 yards on 8 rushes but caught all 9 of his targets for 81 yards and a TD. D'Onta Foreman got the only other RB touch: a 2-yard run. He played 4 snaps to Chuba Hubbard's 3.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is active for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. He carries elevated risk after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. But if you were waiting on him, get McCaffrey into your fantasy lineup.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler hears that the Panthers are "optimistic" about RB Christian McCaffrey's availability for today's game vs. the Cardinals but that he'll need to test that injured quad in pre-game warmups before a final decision is made. "One key in that test will be going full speed, which he didn’t do much of in practices," Fowler adds. Cardinals-Panthers kicks off at 4:05 pm ET, so we won't get Carolina's inactives until a little after 2:30.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) "likely" to play vs. the Cardinals today. "He might not be at full strength" after missing 2 practices this week, Schefter adds. We'll look for further updates on the situation, but unless we hear that McCaffrey's snaps and touches will be significantly scaled back, he belongs in Week 4 fantasy lineups.

The Panthers list RB Christian McCaffrey as questionable with the quad injury that has limited his activity this week. McCaffrey did take part in Friday's practice. We'll have to watch his status through the weekend.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (quad) missed practice again on Thursday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears, though, that "there is still optimism that he plays" vs. the Cardinals this weekend. "He’s kept it close to the vest, but barring a setback he should be OK," Rapoport adds. We'll get another update on CMC tomorrow.

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton tweeted that Panthers HC Matt Rhule "sounded like it was no big deal" when he discussed RB Christian McCaffrey's thigh injury Wednesday. "We'll see where he is tomorrow," the coach added. There have been plenty of times that McCaffrey has missed Wednesday's practice only to be ready for full use by game time. If he were to miss any games, we're not sure either Chuba Hubbard or D'Onta Foreman would claim a large enough share of the work to be "the guy" for fantasy football lineups.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey missed Wednesday's practice with a thigh injury. Per insider Joe Person, HC Matt Rhule "wouldn't speculate" on McCaffrey's availability for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. We'll see if McCaffrey is able to get on the practice field tomorrow.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 25 times for 108 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints. He added 7 yards on 2 catches among 4 targets. It was a light passing day for Carolina, with QB Baker Mayfield attempting 25 passes and completing just 12. Only D.J. Moore exceeded 4 targets (he had 6), and no Panther caught more than 2 passes. WR Lavish Shenault scored on a pass from 67 yards out for the team's only offensive TD.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) is not listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He was limited early in the week with what was reported as ankle stiffness, but McCaffrey put in a full practice on Friday. He should be ready for his usual workhorse role vs. the Saints on Sunday.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with an ankle. According to Darin Gantt of the team's official website, McCaffrey "had some stiffness" in the ankle but is still expected to play vs. the Saints on Sunday. We'll look for further updates on McCaffrey's status and will get another practice report tomorrow.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey posted 128 scoreless yards in a Week 2 loss to the Giants. As usual, CMC rarely left the field, ultimately seeing a 91% snap share ahead of D’Onta Foreman (5%) and Chuba Hubbard (3%). The backups combined for only 2 touches. Our biggest concerns going forward are a hot-and-cold Baker Mayfield and a Matt Rhule-led Panthers squad that ranks 28th in total offense. High touch volume still keeps CMC in the top-3 discussion.
