Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey will likely be ‘good to go’ for Week 11
Over the past few weeks, Christian McCaffrey has continuously made an appearance on the Carolina Panthers’ injury report. Despite missing practice on Wednesday, McCaffrey will likely be ‘good to go’ for Week 11 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Since earlier in the season, the Panthers have withheld their dual-threat running back from practicing on certain days due to multiple injuries. It remains to be seen if any of the injuries have been hindering him enough to keep him off of the practice field.
Either way, McCaffrey continues to dominate for the Panthers each and every week. Therefore, it’s probable that Carolina is just giving their superstar running back days to rest.
This season, McCaffrey has rushed for 989 yards on 185 attempts and 11 touchdowns. The versatile running back has also hauled in 48 receptions, 396 yards, and another three touchdowns as a receiving threat.
In a league that tends to give the MVP Award to a quarterback, McCaffrey should definitely be considered in the conversation. Currently, McCaffrey is on pace to come close to breaking Chris Johnson’s single-season record for yards from scrimmage.
The Panthers are 5-4 and are still trying to propel themselves into the playoff race in the NFC. As a result, it is wise for them to be cautious with McCaffrey because losing him would essentially end their season.
Carolina has included McCaffrey’s name on the team’s injury report over the past month. In addition, he’s gone the past six weeks with being a limited participant in practice after missing Wednesday’s practice session.
Regardless of his status on the injury report, McCaffrey just keeps on posting big-time performances. There’s no reason to believe he doesn’t do the same in Week 11 versus the Falcons.
