hristian McCaffrey will not take another snap for the Carolina Panthers until the 2022 season. The All-Pro running back/wide receiver suffered an ankle injury during Carolina’s Week 12 loss to the Miami Dolphins and was seen wearing a walking boot after the game, with head coach Matt Rhule and the team hoping it was nothing too serious. An MRI on Monday revealed the worst-case scenario, however, and the team has announced that McCaffrey will not return in 2021.
The specifics of the latest injury have not been disclosed as of yet. This marks the second time McCaffrey has been moved to injured reserve this season, initially missing time due to a hamstring injury suffered during a Week 3 victory over the Houston Texans.
