The Athletic's Joe Person writes the absence of a power runner on the roster means "that could leave Chuba Hubbard as the short-yardage back."It would seem to be a pretty decent casting of talent to use Hubbard in that role. He had a 29.7% DVOA on 18 carries with three yards to go for a first or less last season, and at 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, he's sizeable if not a total brute. This is listed in an article regarding a roster hole for the Panthers though, so it's possible this role gets taken away via signing.
