Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard out of practice for 2nd straight day

For the second straight day, Carolina Panthers running back Chuba Hubbard was held out of practice due to an ankle injury. The second-year rusher sustained the setback towards the end of Week 7’s stunning upset victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers—an outing in which he ran for 63 yards and a touchdown on nine carries.

As a bit of insurance, the Panthers signed undrafted rookie rusher John Lovett back to their practice squad. Linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe was released to make room for the addition.
