Panthers HC Matt Rhule said RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) was "pretty limited" in Wednesday's practice. (Better than "extremely limited" Sam Darnold.). "We'll see how he looks tomorrow," Rhule added. At this point, CMC seems no better than 50/50 to return for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) has been designated to return from IR. That makes him eligible to practice but doesn't guarantee that he'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. ESPN's David Newton reported this past Sunday that McCaffrey is "on target" to return for that one, but we'll monitor his progress over the next few days.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule expects to get RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) back on the practice field on Wednesday. "Hopefully we can get Christian back soon. If it's not this week, hopefully it will be next week," Rhule said. We'll keep a close eye on McCaffrey's practice participation level this week. Don't go dropping RB Chuba Hubbard just yet, though.

ESPN's David Newton reports that Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is "on target" to return for next weekend's game vs. the Patriots. Of course, we thought CMC was about to return multiple times since suffering this hamstring injury back in Week 3. We'll see how he fares in practice this coming week.

The Panthers have placed RB Christian McCaffrey on IR. He had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings. This move means he'll miss at least 2 more beyond that with the hamstring injury that knocked him out of the Week 3 win at Houston. Rookie Chuba Hubbard should be the lead back this week against Minnesota and for upside matchups at the Giants and Falcons the next 2 weeks. We'll see whether McCaffrey is ready to return for the Week 9 game against New England.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is out for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. It looks like he suffered a setback this week after missing practice on Thursday and Friday, but we'll look for further updates on his status. RB Chuba Hubbard gets another start on Sunday. He tallied 13 carries and 2 targets in negative game script in Week 4 and 24 carries and 6 targets with more positive script last week.

Update: HC Matt Rhule claimed Friday that McCaffrey didn't suffer a setback and added that he's "hopeful" McCaffrey will be back for Week 7. We'll see.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday. It's a downgrade after he put in 3 limited practices last week. Hopefully he didn't suffer a setback. We'll get another update on McCaffrey tomorrow, but at this point it seems more likely than not that he misses Sunday's game vs. the Vikings.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule said Wednesday that RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is “probably 50-50” to play Sunday vs. Minnesota. CMC was limited in practice today. If he returns, it’ll end up being just a 2-game absence for the 25-year-old. Last week in his place, rookie Chuba Hubbard rushed 24 times for 101 yards, adding 5 catches on 6 targets. He’ll remain a plug-in RB2 if McCaffrey sits.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is inactive for today’s vs. the Eagles. He put in 3 limited practices this week and seemingly has a good shot to return for Week 6. Chuba Hubbard gets another game as Carolina’s lead back but ceded pass-catching work to RB Rodney Smith last week.

The Panthers list RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. McCaffrey practiced all week and is clearly making good progress in his rehab. But Carolina is wisely playing it safe with the stud back. Chuba Hubbard will again operate as the Panthers' lead back this weekend, but he lost passing-down work to RB Rodney Smith last week. The role leaves Hubbard as a lower-end RB2.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Thursday. He said afterward that he "feels great" and "definitely" has a chance to play vs. the Eagles this weekend. He's certainly trending in the right direction, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule said Thursday morning that he's "hopeful" RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) plays vs. the Eagles this weekend. McCaffrey got in a limited practice on Wednesday, looked good according to reporters in attendance and avoided a setback. We'll get another update on his practice participation this afternoon.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. “Christian looked real good," HC Matt Rhule said afterward. "I don’t know what that means in terms of Sunday." Rhule went on to say that McCaffrey might be a game-time decision, per ESPN's David Newton. We'll get another CMC update tomorrow.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule said Monday that he expects RB Christian McCaffrey to return to practice Wednesday, according to Jonathan Alexander of the Charlotte Observer. That doesn't necessarily mean McCaffrey is on track to return for Week 5, but it would obviously be a big step in the right direction. We'll certainly be watching the Carolina star closely all week.

There's a "chance" Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) returns for Week 5, although it's "more likely" he's out until Week 6, according to ESPN's David Newton. McCaffrey went through a stretching routine prior to today's game vs. the Cowboys, per Newton. We'll see if McCaffrey is able to get on the practice field this coming week.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule said the team is "optimistic" RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) will miss 3 games, according to insider Joe Person. McCaffrey hasn't been placed on IR, so Carolina must think there's at least a chance he's back before Week 7. But it sounds like our expectation should be that he misses the next 3 games vs. the Cowboys, Eagles and Vikings. We'll get our 1st look at the McCaffrey-less backfield on Sunday. We're projecting RB Chuba Hubbard to produce RB2 numbers with RB1 upside.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule confirmed Monday that RB Christian McCaffrey won't be going to IR with his hamstring injury. That means the team believes there's at least a reasonable chance he's ready by Week 6. We'll keep you updated on his rehab progress.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is expected to miss "a few weeks," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Carolina isn't planning to put McCaffrey on IR "as of now," Rapoport adds. Hopefully we get a more concrete timeline -- but if McCaffrey doesn't land on IR, that means the team expects him to miss no more than 2 weeks. It's looking like CMC avoided a serious injury.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey is scheduled for testing on his injured hamstring on Friday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So we should get an idea of how long CMC will be out later today. Per Rapoport, McCaffrey was quickly ruled out of last night's game because he "could not push off at all on that hamstring." McCaffrey owners should be bracing for a multi-game absence, but we'll pass along more info as soon as we have it. After McCaffrey exited the Texans game, RB Chuba Hubbard out-snapped RB Royce Freeman 38 to 11. Hubbard is the priority add on waiver wires, but Freeman is worth a stash in most leagues, too.
