Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey to miss seventh straight game


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The #Carolina #Panthers will be without running back #Christian #McCaffrey and several other key offensive players #Sunday as they try to spoil the #New #Orleans #Saints’ bid to become the top seed in the NFC.

#McCaffrey (quadriceps) will miss his seventh straight game and 13th on the season, coach #Matt #Rhule said #Wednesday.

#Rhule also doesn’t expect backup #Mike #Davis (ankle) to play, leaving the running back duties to #Rodney #Smith, #Trenton #Cannon and wide receiver #Curtis #Samuel.

#Left tackle #Russell #Okung (calf) also has been ruled out, leaving converted guard #Michael #Schofield to protect quarterback #Teddy #Bridgewater’s blind side.

#Schofield is the fifth player to start at left tackle this season for the #Panthers. #Trent #Scott was placed on injured reserve #Monday, joining tackles #Greg #Little and #Dennis #Daley.

#McCaffrey was at practice #Wednesday but did not participate. #He has played only one game since suffering a high ankle sprain in #Week 2. #He missed six games with the ankle sprain, three with a shoulder injury and the last four with a quad injury.

#In 2019, #McCaffrey became the third player in NFL history to have 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving in the same season.
