RB: Christian McCaffrey

Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 5 against the Eagles.

Coach Matt Rhule said McCaffrey might do some things "health wise" on Saturday but "was not going to play any games” with the injury status. He'll sit this week for Chuba Hubbard, who handled 15-of-23 backfield touches with 81% of Carolina's RB carries in Week 4 against Dallas. With Rodney Smith soaking up the targets (5) needed for Hubbard to achieve an RB1-ceiling, the latter should be considered a touch-based RB2 for Sunday.
