  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: In line for starting role

    Hubbard is in line to serve as the Panthers' starting running back after Christian McCaffrey (ankle) was ruled out for the season Monday.

    Hubbard served as the lead back in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, and he's in line to serve as the No. 1 running back across the final five games of the regular season. The rookie also filled in for McCaffrey when he missed five games due to a hamstring injury earlier in the season, and he totaled 89 carries for 329 yards and two touchdowns while securing 13 of 18 targets for 88 yards during that time. Ameer Abdullah should serve as Carolina's primary backup.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Helps replace McCaffrey

    Hubbard rushed two times for six yards and didn't catch his only target in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Dolphins.

    Hubbard didn't impact the box score much, but it's important to note that starting tailback Christian McCaffrey played just one second-half snap after injuring his ankle Sunday. McCaffrey was also seen in a walking boot after the contest, raising some concern over his status despite Carolina now entering its bye week. Should he be limited at all once the Panthers return, Hubbard and Ameer Abdullah would figure to assume much of McCaffrey's vacated workload, potentially elevating both of their stocks.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Not used Sunday

    Hubbard played just one offensive snap in Sunday's 27-21 loss to Washington.

    Hubbard saw superstar Christian McCaffrey and quarterback Cam Newton combine for 20 of Carolina's 21 rushing attempts, perhaps a sign of things to come going forward. Although him playing just one snap was still rather surprising given his recent production, Hubbard's backup role behind such accomplished runners restricts his fantasy upside, with Sunday serving as a glaring example of that.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Scores off bench

    Hubbard rushed nine times for 27 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-10 win over the Cardinals.

    Hubbard got just three carries while watching star Christian McCaffrey rack up nearly 130 scrimmage yards in the first half. However, after McCaffrey was seen in Carolina's medical tent early in the third quarter and was subsequently left on the sideline for most of the second half, Hubbard garnered more of the workload. He capitalized with a five-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter. While the Panthers' comfortable lead may have contributed toward McCaffrey watching most of the late-game action, if his status is impacted by any injury going forward, Hubbard would figure to again be the main beneficiary, having filled in admirably while McCaffrey was sidelined five games with a hamstring issue earlier this season.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Has long gain

    Hubbard rushed three times for three yards and caught one of two targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 24-6 loss to the Patriots.

    Hubbard saw his usage scaled back significantly with star Christian McCaffrey returning to the fold. Whereas McCaffrey topped 100 scrimmage yards from his 18 touches, Hubbard was left with only a handful of opportunities, but he at least made good use of his lone reception. As McCaffrey garners more work going forward, expect Hubbard's role to remain restricted, putting him on the backburner after a stretch of success filling in as the starter.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Set to lose work with McCaffrey back

    Hubbard is expected to see his snap and touch count take a hit Sunday against the Patriots with Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) suiting up for the first time since Week 3, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    Even with McCaffrey back in the fold, there's an expectation he'll be on a limit of around 30 to 40 snaps as he works his way back from a strained hamstring, per David Newton of As a result, Hubbard will remain involved in Carolina's offense, but he may be hard-pressed to approach the 20.4 touches per game he was given during McCaffrey's five-game absence. It's difficult to project what can be expected of both backs, and a smaller workload for Hubbard may not pay dividends for a player averaging just 3.6 yards per carry this season.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Gets 25 touches

    Hubbard rushed 24 times for 82 yards and a touchdown but lost a fumble in Sunday's 19-13 win over the Falcons. He also caught one of two targets for nine yards.

    Hubbard coughed it up on Carolina's first offensive play but proceeded to garner his second-highest touch total of the season. That came despite recent addition Ameer Abdullah totaling 66 yards on his 11 touches and fellow tailback Royce Freeman getting the ball six times as well. Although Hubbard wasn't particularly efficient on the ground, his six-yard touchdown during the fourth quarter helped the Panthers snap their four-game losing streak. Next up is a matchup against the Patriots in Week 9, but with star Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) reportedly on track to return for that game, Hubbard may see his workload cut significantly going forward.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Held to 56 total yards

    Hubbard carried the ball 12 times for 28 yards in Sunday's 25-3 loss to the Giants. He added four receptions for 28 yards.

    Hubbard accounted for 12 of the team's 17 rushing attempts but was unable to get going on the ground. He managed a rush of 13 yards but was often stuffed at the line of scrimmage otherwise. Hubbard did manage to supplement his production with four receptions, his second-highest mark of the season. Despite serving as the team's top back, Hubbard has now managed only 121 yards across 33 total touches in the last two games. Given the Panthers' offensive struggles as a whole, Hubbard may find it difficult to work efficiently in upcoming matchups.
