In case anyone thought Christian McCaffrey wasn't playing on Sunday, think again. 

McCaffrey confirmed in a funny way on Thursday afternoon that he expects to play against the New Orleans Saints, even though he's dealing with an ankle injury.

“I think at this point if I went to take a leak during practice, I’d end up on the (injury) report," McCaffrey said.

McCaffrey has played in Carolina's first two games and currently has 25 carries for 135 yards and a touchdown. 

He'll look to have even more of an impact as the Panthers try and notch their first win of the season. 

Kickoff for Panthers-Saints will be at 1 p.m. ET and it'll be regionally televised by FOX.
