Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey limited on Thursday with ankle injury

After his usual rest on Wednesday, Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey popped back up on this week’s injury report. But, unfortunately, it wasn’t for the same reason.

Thursday’s listing had McCaffrey as a limited participant in practice due to an ankle injury. According to Darin Gantt of Panthers.com, McCaffrey had “lingering stiffness” in his foot following the Week 2 matchup with the New York Giants.

He is still, however, expected to play in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints—as his limited activity was described as a precautionary measure taken by the team.
