World news – US – Christian McCaffrey sidelined by ankle injury


The Panthers played the final 13:25 of Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers without running back Christian McCaffrey, who suffered an ankle injury. 

McCaffrey limped off the field after scoring his second touchdown of the day, a 7-yarder on fourth-and-2 that cut Carolina’s deficit to 21-14 early in the fourth quarter. 

« I know he came out in the first quarter at one point, and then at the end of the game they said he was out with a lower leg injury, » said head coach Matt Rhule, who didn’t have an update on the extent of McCaffrey’s injury after the game. 

Before he was sidelined, McCaffrey had 18 rushing attempts for 59 yards and a pair of scores. He also caught four passes for 29 yards. 

McCaffrey was replaced by Mike Davis, who finished with one carry for 1 yard and eight receptions for 74 yards. 

Sunday was the 50th game of McCaffrey’s career. He has not missed a game in his three-plus seasons.

It had been 16 years since Carolina wideouts did what DJ Moore and Robby Anderson accomplished Sunday.

Even at the age of 43, the man many call the GOAT is still capable of piling up points.
