Panthers’ RB Christian McCaffrey is unlikely to play Sunday against the Lions due to his shoulder injury and the team still is preparing got a multi-week absence, per source.
So likely no McCaffrey and uncertainty about QB Teddy Bridgewater, too. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Not good news. It was reported last week that McCaffrey might be able to play this week, but it looks like we’ll be seeing more of Mike Davis as the lead back in Carolina. Davis has been the RB29, RB31, RB32, RB30 the last four weeks.
