McCaffrey ha avuto una risonanza magnetica lunedì che ha rivelato che l'infortunio era abbastanza grave da metterlo in riserva per gli infortunati. Because of his anticipated recovery time and given that it would be his second time on IR, the news means McCaffrey will miss out on Carolina’s final five regular-season games following its bye week.
Il 2017 first-round draft pick was injured in the first half of Carolina’s 33-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins and played only sparingly in the second half.
It’s the second straight year McCaffrey has ended the season on injured reserve. He played in just three games last season.
Since becoming the NFL’s highest-paid running back with a four-year, $ 64 million contract after the 2019 stagione, McCaffrey will have missed 23 di 33 games in the last two seasons due to injuries.
Il 2019 All-Pro had 421 metri su 68 carries and a touchdown the past four weeks. He finished the season with 442 yard and a touchdown, e 37 catture per 343 yard e un touchdown.
