The team said an MRI Monday morning revealed an injury severe enough to place him on injured reserve.
“Because of the time it would take to recover, and because it will be his second time on injured reserve this season, the news means McCaffrey will miss out on the Panthers’ final five regular season games after the bye week,” the team said in a statement.
He appeared in just three games last season before suffering injuries to his ankle, shoulder and quadriceps.
The 25-year-old totaled 421 total yards and a touchdown on 68 touches the past four weeks after returning from the five-game absence. He finishes this season with 99 rushes for 442 yards and a touchdown and 37 receptions for 343 yards and a touchdown in seven games.
