Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey will be game-time decision


Once considered a front-runner for the Heisman trophy this season, Stanford Cardinal star running back Christian McCaffrey may miss Saturday’s game against Notre Dame.

The news was announced on Wednesday.

After starting the season 3-0 and climbing to No. 9 in the AP Poll, Stanford has come unraveled in the last two weeks; losing to Washington and Washington State, respectively. They surrendered more than 40 points in each game and have only scored 22 points in their last eight quarters.

McCaffrey’s injury remains undisclosed and he left Saturdays loss to the Washington State Cougars in the third quarter. He would appear on the sidelines shortly after but would not return to the game. T

his may be the result of a lingering injury, because McCaffery’s numbers have been down the last two weeks.

Against the Washington Huskies he had only 12 rushes for 49 yards, and against the Cougars he finished with eight rushes for 35 yards. He’ll be hard pressed to win the Heisman with those kind of numbers, and Stanford will be lucky to finish the season over .500.
