It’s no secret that Carolina Panthers star running back Christian McCaffrey has spent a lot of time on the injury report throughout his NFL career. That’s especially true recently as he has appeared in just 10 games throughout the previous two seasons. And it looks like there’s a chance he’s sidelined again.
According to NFL insider Adam Schefter of ESPN, McCaffrey did not participate in the team’s practice on Wednesday due to a thigh injury.

Given McCaffrey’s injury struggles the past few seasons, the NFL world was totally unsurprised by the news with everyone seeming to make the same joke about his lack of durability.
If you ever forget which day of the week it is, just see if you have a notification that says “Christian Mccaffrey has been changed from healthy to questionable”. If you do, it’s Wednesday.

Earlier this week, McCaffrey himself made a joke about his lack of durability when he was added to the injury report ahead of this week’s showdown with the Arizona Cardinals.
“I think at this point if I went to take a leak during practice, I’d end up on the (injury) report,” McCaffrey said.
