Chuba Hubbard Named Starter Week 9 Against the Colts

Chuba Hubbard Named Starter Week 9 Against the Indianapolis Colts. In Friday’s press conference, Head Coach Frank Reich, confirmed that Chuba Hubbard will remain the starter at running back. Hubbard has been the starter for the last three weeks while Miles Sanders was dealing with a shoulder injury. Sanders was brought in this offseason to be the every down back for the Panthers when he signed a four-year $25.4 million dollar deal.

Hubbard has had a solid start to the 2023 campaign. He has 69 attempts for 270 yards and a touchdown along with 15 receptions for 85 yards. Sanders has been one of the team’s biggest disappointments thus far. He has 63 attempts for 190 yards and a touchdown along with 15 catches for 81 yards.

The Panthers are coming off their first win of the season vs the Houston Texans. This week they look to continue the win streak against the Colts who rank 27th against the running back. Fire up your Chuba shares.
