He technically still has a chance, though it now doesn’t seem likely.
The Panthers have listed McCaffrey (hamstring) as doubtful for Week Five. McCaffrey was limited in all three practices this week.
“Nothing much more to add,” head coach Matt Rhule said, via David Newton of ESPN. “He’s been going. It’s doubtful he’ll play on Sunday. That could change. I’m not going to play any games [with the injury status].”
McCaffrey missed last week’s loss to the Cowboys after injuring his hamstring during Carolina’s Week Three Thursday win over Houston.
Defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos (ankle) is listed as questionable.
