Carolina Panthers could use Christian McCaffrey’s help in red zone


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers miss Christian McCaffrey, particularly in the red zone.

While Mike Davis has been a solid fill-in for McCaffrey and helped the team to three wins, the reality is if the Panthers want to make a run at the NFC South championship they’ll need their dynamic running back on the field — and soon.

McCaffrey has missed the last four games with a high ankle sprain and should be nearing the end of his recovery period. It is generally considered a four-to-six week injury, although coach Matt Rhule wouldn’t say if the 2019 All-Pro running back will play Sunday at New Orleans.
