RB: Christian McCaffrey

Speaking Thursday, Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) said he "definitely" has a chance to return for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

McCaffrey said he "feels great." Players are always overly optimistic about their odds of playing through injury, but it's an excellent sign McCaffrey avoided setbacks in his Wednesday return to practice and was able to give it a go again on Thursday. The fear with hamstrings and CMC's recent injury history is that he could be coming back too quickly after going down two weeks ago on Thursday Night Football. What has become clear is that even if McCaffrey isn't back for Week 5, he will be back in Week 6. Stay tuned.
