Chuba Hubbard, RB (CAR)

Gets eight carries

Hubbard rushed eight times for 10 yards in Sunday's 26-7 win over the Saints.

Hubbard was handed a decent workload despite Christian McCaffrey finishing with 29 touches. However, Hubbard playing a quarter of Carolina's 76 overall offensive snaps came partially as a result of McCaffrey missing a couple drives while dealing with cramps, Joseph Person of The Athletic reports. After hardly getting anything going with his carries Sunday, Hubbard will hope to make a bigger impact if called upon in Thursday's upcoming game versus the Texans.
