Christian McCaffrey rolled ankle, Cam Newton benching highlight ugly day for Panthers

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey was spotted in a walking boot after rolling his ankle during Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins, a game in which Cam Newton was benched.

Fantasy Impact: 

Just an ugly day all around for the Panthers. Newton went 5/21 for 92 yards and two interceptions before the team turned to P.J. Walker, who was not very effective himself, going just 5/10 for 87 yards and an interception of his own. McCaffrey getting injured again doesn’t help matters either. He finished with just 35 yards on ten carries. Carolina is now 5-7 after the 33-10 thumping to the suddenly hot Miami Dolphins, who have now won four straight after a 1-7 start. That 3-0 start feels like forever ago for the Panthers, who have lost seven of nine since. Carolina finally has their bye next week, giving McCaffrey time to rest before a grueling homestretch that includes the Falcons, Saints, Bills and two games against the Buccaneers.
