CHARLOTTE, NC - AUGUST 27: Christian McCaffery (22) running back of the Panthers during a NFL football game between the Pittsburg Steelers and the Carolina Panthers on August 27, 2021 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

Christian McCaffrey was limited throughout the week of practice leading up to Carolina's Week 5 matchup with the Eagles, but the club ultimately chose to keep their star back on the shelf. This week, McCaffrey again was limited in practice and it seems like his status will go down to the wire once more. When asked whether or not McCaffrey -- who is dealing with a hamstring injury he suffered against Houston on Sept. 23 -- will return for Sunday's upcoming game with Minnesota, coach Matt Rhule kept his status up in the air.

Chicago Bears will make game-time decision on whether Andy Dalton or Justin Fields start

  Chicago Bears will make game-time decision on whether Andy Dalton or Justin Fields start Chicago Bears managed just 1 yard passing against the Cleveland Browns and rookie Justin Fields was sacked nine times in his first NFL start.Dalton was limited again in practice Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. But he and coach Matt Nagy both said he is progressing in the recovery from a bone bruise on his left knee, with Dalton saying he feels “really good where I’m at.

"Honestly, probably 50-50 on Christian," he said, via the official team website. "It's going to come down to how he feels. So we'll wait to see how he responds to today and go from there."

Rhule added that a decision on McCaffrey will likely go all the way to Sunday, making him a true game-time decision.

McCaffrey is looking to avoid missing his third consecutive game of the season and join a Panthers team that is looking to bounce back from a Week 5 loss to Philadelphia. Carolina has lost both of its games during McCaffrey's absence, but the rushing attack led by rookie Chuba Hubbard has been solid. Last Week, Hubbard totaled 101 yards on the ground on 4.2 yards per carry and caught five of his six targets for 33 yards.

Even with Hubbard playing well, however, McCaffrey is a true game-changing talent when healthy and makes the Panthers' offense that much more dynamic, so his status will certainly be worth monitoring as this week progresses.
