Carolina Panthers star Christian McCaffrey might miss more time this season.

According to Ian Rapoport, there’s a very real chance McCaffrey misses time with a shoulder injury suffered Sunday, and his status against the Bucs this Sunday “is very much in doubt.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

McCaffrey has already had to miss several games this season, and now it sounds like he’s likely to miss a few more.

That’s bad news for the NFL and the Panthers. The Panthers are currently 3-6 with a soft schedule coming up, but we have no reason to believe they’ll be any good without McCaffrey on the field.

It’s also bad news for the NFL because the league is simply more exciting when McCaffrey is on the field playing well.

He’s one of the most electric players in the NFL, and he can do it all. He’s a ton of fun to watch on the field, and the excitement level drops when he’s not playing.

Let’s hope McCaffrey is back as soon as possible!
