Effective in loss
Hubbard rushed the ball 14 times for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Titans. He added five receptions on five targets for 47 yards.
Miles Sanders saw an increased workload in the loss, but Hubbard's opportunity was largely undisturbed. He accounted for the Panthers' only touchdown on a five-yard run midway through the third quarter, but the majority of the rest of his production came as a pass catcher. That allowed him to rack up his highest yardage total from scrimmage this season. Despite fairly steady opportunity, Hubbard is likely to remain reliant upon receiving work and touchdowns to post significant performances.
