Are the Carolina Panthers doing a little “one step forward and two steps back” with Christian McCaffrey?

Following a limited workout during yesterday’s practice, McCaffrey was held completely off the field on Thursday. The All-Pro rusher has missed Carolina’s last two games, and is now in deeper jeopardy of making it a third against the Minnesota Vikings.

McCaffrey exited the Panthers’ Week 3 win over the Houston Texans with what has now been diagnosed as a strained hamstring. If he does, indeed, sit out this Week 6 contest, he will now have been sidelined for 16 of the team’s last 22 games.

Here’s how the injury report rolled out on the afternoon:

Injury Wed. Thurs. Fri. Game status
LB Shaq Thompson Foot DNP DNP
T Cameron Erving Neck Full FP
RB Christian McCaffrey Hamstring Limited DNP
CB C.J. Henderson Shoulder Limited LP
LB Kamal Martin Concussion DNP

Punter Joseph Charlton, after officially being placed on the injured reserve, now finds his way off the report. Martin was an addition, as he’s been listed with a concussion.
