McCaffrey was dinged up on a touchdown run in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers and had to leave the game. 

McCaffrey is the face of the Panthers franchise so this is obviously a huge loss for Carolina for as long as he’s out. 

McCaffrey, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Panthers back in 2017. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $17.224 million contract when the Panthers signed him to a new four-year, $64 million contract extension that also included his expected fifth-year option.

In 2020, McCaffrey has appeared in two games for the Panthers and rushed 41 times for 156 yards (3.8 YPC) and four touchdowns, adding seven receptions for 67 yards. 

We’ll have more on McCaffrey as the news is available.
