CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey did not practice Thursday, a sign that he could miss his third straight game while trying to rehab from a hamstring injury.

The 2019 All-Pro running back had participated in four straight practices for the Panthers on a limited basis.

Coach Matt Rhule told reporters on Wednesday that McCaffrey was “50-50” for the game and that his playing status would likely come down to a game-time decision.

If he is not available for the team’s contest against the Vikings on Sunday, rookie Chuba Hubbard would be in line to start in his absence once again.
