Christian McCaffrey expected to miss “multiple weeks” with ankle injury

The Panthers lose their star running back for multiple weeks.

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Carolina Panthers will be without star running back Christian McCaffrey for “multiple weeks” due to an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact

Losing both McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley in the same week is DEVASTATING. With McCaffrey out, this thrusts Mike Davis into a starting role in Carolina’s backfield. Go get him! I would also expect greater work for Curtis Samuel who has shown to get work in both the passing and rushing game so far this year.
