Christian McCaffrey has been sidelined since hurting his hamstring week-three against the Texans. Wednesday, the Panthers’ All-Pro back was limited in practice and Matt Rhule says his status for this week’s matchup against the Vikings will be a game-time decision.
“Probably 50/50 on Christian. I think it’s going to come down to how he feels. We’ll have to wait and see how he responds from today and go from there. I couldn’t go either way right now.”
In other injury news, offensive lineman Cam Irving (neck) was a full participant at practice. The right tackle sat out last week’s loss to the Eagles.
Cornerback CJ Henderson (shoulder) was also limited in practice, as well as punter Joey Charlton (back).
Shaq Thompson did not practice and will not play Sunday. Rhule says he hopes to have him back by next week’s game against the Giants.
