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:
