Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) limited in practice

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey was limited in practice Thursday by an ailing ankle but is expected to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

McCaffrey took his scheduled day off on Wednesday, and on Thursday, his ankle was stiff. He didn’t show signs of discomfort, per the team website.

McCaffrey, 26, played in just 10 of a possible 33 games over the past two seasons due to ankle and shoulder injuries. But he is dangerous when healthy and has gained 3,722 rushing yards and 3,065 receiving yards with 31 rushing touchdowns and 17 receiving scores in 60 games (54 starts) over five-plus NFL seasons.

Last Sunday, in a loss to the New York Giants, McCaffrey ran for 102 yards — his first 100-yard rushing game since 2019, when he was an All-Pro.

Cornerback Donte Jackson (hamstring) also limited was limited in practice Thursday for the second straight day.

Linebacker Frankie Luvu (shoulder) and cornerback Stantley Thomas-Oliver III (Achilles) were listed as limited participants in Thursday’s practice after having no designation on Wednesday.
