The Carolina Panthers have decided not to place running back Christian McCaffrey on injured reserve while he recovers from a strained hamstring. Had McCaffrey been placed on IR he would have missed at least three games under NFL rules. “We feel like there is hope that he will be back before then — or at least after three games and going into the fourth game,” coach Matt Rhule said Monday.
The news gives hope to Panthers fans and fantasy managers that McCaffrey's injury won't sideline him long term.
The highlight of Week 4 is the game in New England.
