NFL Week Five early inactives: Christian McCaffrey out again this week

·2 min read

Every week we bring you all the inactives from the 1 p.m. ET games in one post, constantly updated with the latest information.

The Panthers will be without running back Christian McCaffrey again this weekend. There was some hope that McCaffrey might be able to return after missing Week Four when he joined the team at practice on Wednesday and continued to work throughout the week, but the Panthers threw some cold water on those feelings when they listed him as doubtful on Friday.

Carolina officially ruled McCaffrey out on Sunday morning, which means they’ll be relying on Chuba Hubbard and Royce Freeman out of the backfield as they try to bounce back from their first loss of the season.
