Week 4 Friday Injury Report: Christian McCaffrey Doubtful

CHARLOTTE — Christian McCaffrey is back in the building and has a chance to play this weekend.

McCaffrey returned to training on Friday after missing the previous two days with a thigh injury.

He was a limited entrant, and is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.

Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said after practice that he was “very hopeful” that McCaffrey could go.

McCaffrey is coming out of two consecutive 100-yard rushing games, his first since 2019. He was also on injury report last week with an ankle problem, but played.

Three other players are listed as doubtful for the Panthers Sunday: Broad receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (hamstring), defensive end Marquis Haynes Sr. (knee) and cornerback Stantley Thomas-Oliver III (Achilles). All three were limited participants on Friday.

The other four players on the report have not submitted injury status to the league, meaning they are good to go.

That group includes linebacker Frankie Luvu (shoulder), tight end Ian Thomas (ankle), safety Xavier Woods (hamstring) and cornerback Jaycee Horn (calf).

Cornerback Donte Jackson (ankle) was added to the report Friday as a restricted entrant, but he has no match status and is expected to leave.
