CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers head coach Matt Rhule indicated that running back Christian McCaffrey would be at practice Wednesday as the team prepares to host the Philadelphia Eagles.
McCaffrey suffered a hamstring injury against Houston in Week 3 and missed the Panthers' 36-28 loss at Dallas in Week 4.
In three games this season, McCaffrey has rushed for 201 yards and a touchdown, and caught 16 passes for 163 yards.
"I'm going to get to Wednesday and see," Rhule said. "He's going to come out Wednesday and see exactly where he is, football-wise."
After playing every game his first three seasons, McCaffrey missed 13 games in 2020 due to a series of injuries.
The Athletic's Joe Person reported Monday that linebacker Shaq Thompson will miss some time, but is week-to-week, with a foot injury.
Thompson suffered the injury in Dallas but still managed to play 93% of the defensive snaps.
The 27-year-old has been enjoying his best season as a pro, leading the team with 25 tackles.
Thompson also has an interception and a sack.
The Panthers (3-1) host the Eagles (1-3) on Sunday at 1 p.m.
