With Cam Newton’s performance quickly deteriorating, one of the Panthers’ last big play makers has just been taken out for the rest of the season.
The Carolina Panthers just announced that, due to an ankle injury suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins, star RB Christian McCaffrey has been placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.
According to a press release from the organization, “An MRI Monday morning revealed an injury severe enough to place him on injured reserve. Because of the time it would take to recover, and because it will be his second time on injured reserve this season, the news means McCaffrey will miss out on the Panthers’ final five regular season games after the bye week.”

Christian McCaffrey made a public statement this afternoon on his Instagram account, saying:
“I love playing football and have dedicated my entire life to what I believe to be the greatest sport in the world. Getting healthy and back on the field this season has been my focus everyday from the time I wake up until I go to bed. I’ve put family, friends, and all other interests on hold so I can fully concentrate my efforts on treatment, training, practicing, studying, preparing, and playing the game I love at the highest level which is why my season coming to an abrupt end today leaves me devastated. I am thankful to everyone who continue to help and support me through this difficult time and promise I will fight with everything I have to return bigger, stronger, faster, and better than ever. #KeepPounding!
