Panthers declared Christian McCaffrey inactive for Week 5 against the Eagles.
Also inactive for the Panthers are LB Shaq Thompson, T Cameron Erving, WR Shi Smith, DT Phil Hoskins, CB Rashaan Melvin and DE Darryl Johnson. McCaffrey is expected to return in Week 6. Chuba Hubbard will handle the rushing work this week with Rodney Smith factoring in on third downs. Hubbard registers as a low-end RB2 in an easy matchup versus the Eagles.
