Coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday that he doesn't expect McCaffrey (shoulder) to be available for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Rhule's comments line up with a report Monday from Adam Schefter of ESPN, who said McCaffrey was "unlikely" to play this weekend. The star running back returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant, so he at least is tentatively on track to return after the Panthers' Week 13 bye.
