After initially being ruled as a game-time decision, Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins will play in Sunday's away game against the Jaguars. Hopkins missed practice throughout the week as he dealt with a rib injury.
While Hopkins will play, expect Christian Kirk, A.J. Green and rookie Rondale Moore to take some of the load off of their Pro Bowl teammate. Moore currently leads the Cardinals with 182 yards on 11 receptions. Hopkins is second on the team with 137 yards but is the Cardinals' leader with three touchdown receptions. Kirk is second on the team with two touchdown receptions. Green, a seven-time Pro Bowler with the Bengals who signed with the Cardinals this offseason, caught his first touchdown pass with his new team during last week's 34-33 win over the Vikings.
Arizona's receiving corps has helped Kyler Murray get off to a sterling start to the 2021 season. The three-year veteran has completed 73.5 percent of his passes thus far with seven touchdowns and three interceptions. He has also rushed for two touchdowns while helping the Cardinals get off to a 2-0 start. His four touchdowns in last week's win over the Vikings led to him winning NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors.
A five-time Pro Bowler, Hopkins is in the middle of his second season in Arizona. Last season, he caught 115 of 160 targets for 1,407 yards and six touchdowns. He eclipsed 10,000 career receiving yards during the end of the 2020 campaign.
