Puts up 137 total yards, one TD

McCaffrey compiled 24 carries for 72 yards and one touchdown and gathered in five of six passes for 65 yards during Sunday's 26-7 win versus the Saints.

During a postgame media session, coach Matt Rhule touched on McCaffrey's brief departure in the second half, telling Steve Reed of the Associated Press that the running back received IVs to treat cramps. On top of the health scare, McCaffrey wasn't very efficient on the ground, averaging 3.0 YPC with a long run of 16 yards. Fortunately, he salvaged Week 2 with his pass-catching acumen en route to 137 yards from scrimmage after going for 187 total yards in the season opener. It'll be interesting to see if McCaffrey's practice reps are at all capped with a short week to prepare for Thursday's game at Houston.
