Sept. 21 Update — Sanders has been removed from the injury report after getting in a full practice on Friday. He should be good to go against the Seahawks. Sanders has had a slow start to the season, averaging just 3.6 yards per carry on 32 attempts.
Sept. 21 Update — Sanders was limited in practice again on Thursday. The Panthers are already expected to be down starting QB Bryce Young, so they hope Sanders can suit up for the game alongside backup QB Andy Dalton.
The rest of the Panthers' injury report:— Joe Person (@josephperson) September 20, 2023
Brian Burns (ankle), Justin Houston (calf), Miles Sanders (pec) and Chandler Wooten (knee) were limited.
The Panthers face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. The team has not yet announced whether they consider him questionable or day-to-day for the upcoming game.
Fantasy football implications for Week 3
If Sanders is out or limited, Chuba Hubbard will see an uptick in snaps and carries in Week 3. Hubbard had 60 rushing yards for the Panthers in Week 1, and was a consistent go-to after Christian McCaffrey left for the 49ers in 2022. Raheem Blackshear is also on the Panthers’ depth chart, and has not yet recorded a carry or target over the first two weeks of the 2023 season.
However, there is not yet any indication that Sanders will not be able to play this weekend.
