It really has not been the start to the season that people were expecting for Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey. Matter of fact, it has been a rough go of things for Carolina as a whole.

Heading into Week 3, this team is in dire need of a win. There had been growing concern that perhaps No. 22 wouldn't be able to suit up due to an ankle injury, but it's looking like he'll be ready to rock.

This is huge for the Panthers. They need McCaffrey out on the field making plays if they want to capture their first win of the year. We'll see how things go this weekend.
