Both the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints have one of the best talents in the NFL at running back. Unfortunately, both of them are battling an injury currently. Alvin Kamara has returned to practice this week. Christian McCaffrey appeared on the injury report for the first time this week due to injury on Thursday.

He had a “rest” day on Wednesday. McCaffrey was limited today with an ankle issue.

Reports are saying that the Panthers still expect their star RB to play against the Saints on Sunday. Regardless, it is a big storyline to keep an eye on as the game approaches.

McCaffrey is a special talent that has been consistently banged up over the past couple of seasons. If he plays for Carolina on Sunday, the Saints will need to keep him in check. Demario Davis and Pete Werner will mostly be tasked with that job for the Saints.
