RB - CAR - IR
Week 14 Outlook
The Panthers placed RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) on IR, which rules him out for the remainder of the 2021 season.
It's the second IR stint of the year for CMC, who injured his ankle in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Dolphins. It was previously reported that McCaffrey would likely return after the team's Week 13 bye, but an MRI showed the more significant injury. Chuba Hubbard and Ameer Abdullah will be popular waiver wire pickups this week.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) might not miss any games with the team having a Week 13 bye.
CMC rolled his ankle in Week 12 against the Dolphins and barely played in the second half. He was in a walking boot after the game, but it sounds as if the bye week is coming at the perfect time for him. Chuba Hubbard should be rostered just in case the injury lingers, but as of now fantasy managers can breathe a sigh of relief.
Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey is in a walking boot following the Panthers' Week 12 loss to the Dolphins.
McCaffrey barely played in the second half as Carolina was getting blown out by Miami. Cam Newton's disastrous quarterback play never game them a chance in this one. CMC rushed 10 times for 35 yards and had just one target in the passing game. He appeared to have suffered an ankle injury in the second quarter. Chuba Hubbard could be a worthwhile add off waivers this week.
