Head coach Matt Rhule said that when McCaffrey trained Wednesday he still felt something was not quite right with his hamstring.
“We left the field that day hoping it would be ready on Thursday, but it is not fully ready yet,” Rhule said. “He does everything he can. It has been three weeks, so I hope to have him [en los entrenamientos] next week”.
The Panthers are 3-0 with McCaffrey in the starting lineup, but have lost the last two games without him. Sam Darnold has had eight sacks and five interceptions in the last two games.
