The Carolina Panthers claimed a 24-9 win over the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football but lost star running back Christian McCaffrey to a strained hamstring injury.
Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said the team doesn’t know the severity of McCaffrey’s injury but the star running back will undergo additional tests.
Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold said the Panthers will be “all right” without McCafrey and expressed hope that the running back will return at some point of the season.
Meanwhile, Panthers left tackle Cam Erving said: “We’re a football team. We’re not the Carolina Christian McCaffreys.”
