Coach: McCaffrey out 'a few weeks' with hamstring injury

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The injury bug has bitten running back Christian McCaffrey again.

Panthers coach Matt Rhule said Friday that the 2019 All-Pro running back is expected to miss "a few weeks" with a strained hamstring. Rhule said the injury could sideline McCaffrey up to four weeks, but said he doesn't know at this point if McCaffrey will go on injured reserve.

"They are still doing a bunch of diagnostic testing so I can't tell you if that is one, two, three or four weeks," Rhule said Friday on a Zoom call. "Obviously Christian will decide the best course of action for him getting back as soon as possible."
