Pelissero: Christian McCaffrey (ankle) not expected to play for Panthers
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) is not expected to play Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
McCaffrey was at practice in a non-contact jersey this week but the expectation is that he will return for Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mike Davis will be the Panthers' workhorse again on Thursday night in a plus matchup. He rushed 16 times for 89 yards and caught a season-high 9 passes (10 targets) for 60 yards and a touchdown when the Panthers played the Falcons in Week 5.
Davis is averaging 16.1 FanDuel points per game as the Panthers' starting running back. The Falcons are allowing the most touchdowns (0.6) and second-most receptions per game (7.3) to opposing running backs. Davis has a salary of $15,000 on FanDuel's Thursday slate.
