CHARLOTTE – Running back Christian McCaffrey, who sat out Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with a shoulder injury, is not expected to play in this week's game against the Lions.
McCaffrey suffered the injury late in the Week 9 loss at Kansas City. He had just returned after missing six games with a high ankle sprain.
In three games this season, McCaffrey has averaged 124.7 scrimmage yards and scored six total touchdowns.
If McCaffrey is ultimately ruled out, Mike Davis would likely get another start. Davis has totaled 675 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns in 2020.
