History may be repeating itself when it comes to the status of Carolina Panthers star running back Christian McCaffrey, this time before Sunday’s meeting with the Minnesota Vikings 2-3.
By Josh alper from Pro Football Talk, McCaffrey was now there to be seen during the media portion of Thursday’s practice session. This development came about 24 hours after Panthers head coach Matt Rhule told reporters McCaffrey was “probably 50-50” to play after the hamstring injury he first suffered on Sept. 23 that has kept him out of action ever since.
McCaffrey was limited for the last week before the game against the Philadelphia Eagles and was later ruled out of that contest. Carolina lost to the Eagles 21-18 and fell to 3-2 on the season.
As pointed out ESPN In statistics, rookie Chuba Hubbard has become Carolina’s leading running back in McCaffrey’s absence with 220 rushing yards on 56 carries. He also has 12 receptions for 78 yards. Unless Rhule is looking to mislead the media and the Vikings in the process, it looks like Hubbard will be RB1 again this weekend.
