Carolina Panthers’ Christian McCaffrey returns to practice


Carolina Panthers star running back Christian McCaffrey was limited in his return to practice on Wednesday.

McCaffrey, 25, has been sidelined since sustaining a hamstring injury during the Panthers’ 24-9 victory over the Houston Texans on Sept. 23.

Coach Matt Rhule told reporters that McCaffrey “looked real good” on Wednesday, however he wasn’t sure of his status for Sunday’s game against the visiting Philadelphia Eagles (1-3). He said McCaffrey could be a game-day decision for Carolina (3-1).

McCaffrey has 52 carries for 201 yards and a touchdown to go along with 16 receptions for 163 yards in three games this season. He played only three games in 2020 due to a high ankle sprain and a shoulder injury.

Rookie running back Chuba Hubbard rushed for 57 yards and added two catches for 14 yards in the Panthers’ 36-28 setback to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
