Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner is ‘'concerned'' about the number of touches running back Christian McCaffrey had last season, about 320. That doesn't mean McCaffrey will be used less. Turner just wants to be smarter about using his star so he's playing less but perhaps getting more touches.
Turner said in a video that carries take more out of you than the completions. He added McCaffrey played over 90% of the plays last year and a lot of those he was "running a swing or getting out of the way." Turner said they need to get someone else on the field to that, but at the same time not minimize McCaffrey's touches. It sounds like McCaffrey will get his work, but maybe see less time on the field.
