Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings according to Joe Person of The Athletic.

Fantasy owners who likely spent either the first or second pick of their respective drafts have been bracing for this news after McCaffrey did not practice on Thursday but at least the early ruleout gives them plenty of time to activate contingency plans.  For what it's worth, head coach Matt Rhule didn't label McCaffrey's mid-week downgrade a setback — he just said he "was not where he needed to be." The team is "hoping" to have him back at practice prior to Week 7. With Rodney Smith waived earlier in the week, Chuba Hubbard can again be considered a confident RB2 after handling 29-of-33 backfield touches in his last spot-start against the Eagles.
