McCaffrey 'in doubt' with shoulder injury | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's return at Kansas City. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that "his status this week is very much in doubt" pending further tests on the joint. Keep Mike Davis at the ready (and get him off waivers if he's been dropped). We'll certainly track this situation closely.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) won't play in Sunday's finale vs. the Saints, HC Matt Rhule said. The consensus #1 overall pick in 2020 fantasy drafts ends up playing just 3 games. Disaster. The good news is that McCaffrey should be a full-go for the offseason program. And remember that he played all 16 games in each of his first 3 NFL seasons. He's an easy 2021 bounce-back candidate. Mike Davis will close out this season as Carolina's lead back, although he lost 7 carries and 2 targets to RB Rodney Smith last week.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is inactive for today’s game vs. Washington. We’ll see if he can make it back for next week’s finale but wouldn’t bet on it. Mike Davis gets another game as lead back today.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Packers. He's not going to play. Mike Davis will get another game as Carolina's lead back vs. a Green Bay defense ranked 28th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.
