Hopkins sat out Thursday's practice with a minor unspecified issue, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
With coach Kliff Kingsbury indicating that the star wideout will be back on the field soon, we'll view Hopkins as day-to-day. Heading into the coming season, Hopkins heads an Arizona WR corps that also includes A.J. Green, Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore and KeeSean Johnson.
Hopkins was able to build on-field chemistry with quarterback Kyler Murray during the Cardinals' offseason program, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.
Murray was banged up at the end of last year, but he and Hopkins returned healthy for the start of the offseason program, participating in both voluntary OTAs and mandatory minicamp. The 29-year-old wideout accounted for 29.4 percent of Arizona's targets last season, ranking third in the NFL with 1,407 receiving yards and tied for second with 115 receptions. A better rushing attack or a bounce-back season from offseason acquisition A.J. Green could cost Hopkins a few targets this year, but he's still among the handful of favorites to lead the league in the category.
Hopkins caught four of his 10 targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 18-7 loss to the Rams.
Hopkins still attracted a robust number of offensive looks in what turned out to be the Cardinals' 2020 finale, but a first-quarter injury to Kyler Murray (ankle) put a dent in the star receiver's output. With Murray unavailable for more than 40 minutes of game action before his fourth-quarter return, Hopkins produced his second-lowest yardage total of the 2020 campaign. Despite a down performance to close out his eighth pro season, Hopkins carries a fourth consecutive Pro Bowl nod, 115 receptions, 1,407 yards and six touchdowns out of his debut campaign with the Cardinals. He's under contract with Arizona for four more seasons, providing ample time for him and his 23-year-old signal-caller to continue strengthening chemistry.
Hopkins (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.
Hopkins steadily increased his involvement in practice throughout the week, advancing from no participation Wednesday to limited activity Thursday before turning in a full workout Friday. With the Cardinals choosing not to put a designation on his name, Hopkins should be in the clear to serve as Kyler Murray's top target in Week 17. Expect Hopkins to draw shadow coverage from elite cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who held the wideout to eight receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets back in Week 13.
Hopkins (hip) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
After sitting out Wednesday's session due to a hip issue, Hopkins made some progress with an appearance on the field Thursday. He's regularly received days off in his first season with the Cardinals, so the increase in reps is consistent with his weekly preparation. Friday's injury report could clear up Hopkins' status entirely for Sunday's game with the Rams in L.A.
Hopkins was held out of practice Wednesday with a hip injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Just before halftime of last week's loss to the 49ers, Hopkins went to the locker room after failing to haul in a pass in the back left corner of the end zone. He continued to play through what was believed to be an upper-body injury, logging 91 percent of the offensive snaps while finishing with 48 yards on eight catches and 12 targets. Hopkins will look to get past the hip concern in advance of Sunday's road matchup with the Rams.
Hopkins (upper body) caught eight of 12 targets for 48 yards during Saturday's 20-12 loss to the 49ers.
Hopkins left the game near the end of the second quarter after hurting his upper body while going for a ball in the end zone, but he later returned to the game. Although he caught 75 percent of the passes thrown his way, he didn't record a single reception of 10 yards or longer as he finished with an average of 6.0 yards per catch. Hopkins piled up 305 yards over the last two weeks and was coming off his best yardage total in a Cardinals uniform, so this disappointing effort was likely quite frustrating to fantasy managers who rode him deep into the playoffs. He'll likely be assessed over the next couple of days but appears on track to play in next Sunday's season finale against the Rams.
Hopkins left Saturday's game after suffering an injury to his upper torso, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
It's unclear whether Hopkins suffered an injury to his upper chest or abdomen, but the star receiver was clearly in pain after failing to catch a touchdown reception in the back left corner of the end zone nearing the end of the second quarter. He walked off under his own power but was immediately taken to the locker room and it's unclear what his status may be for the rest of Saturday's game.
Hopkins wasn't present for the media-access portion of Wednesday's practice, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Wednesday's injury report will reveal whether Hopkins' absence is classified by the Cardinals as "not-injury related," or if he's managing an injury in advance of Saturday's game against the 49ers. In the Cardinals' Week 15 win over the Eagles, Hopkins caught nine of his 11 targets for 169 yards and a touchdown.
Hopkins caught nine of 11 targets for 169 yards and a touchdown while gaining one yard on his lone carry during Sunday's 33-26 win over the Eagles.
Hopkins averaged 18.8 yards per catch as he notched a new season high in yardage, thanks in large part to a 45-yard gain, which tied his second-longest of the campaign. He capped off his huge performance with the decisive 20-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Hopkins, who was coming off a big game against the Giants, now has 1,324 yards to go along with six touchdowns in his initial season with the Cardinals. He will look to add to his numbers next Saturday against the 49ers.
Hopkins was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have any designation for Sunday's game against Philadelphia, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.
Hopkins missed Wednesday's practice for non-injury reasons, rather than his typical absence or limited session due to a minor injury. The Cardinals don't list him with any issue on their final Week 15 practice report, so he should be all set for his typical workload Sunday against a banged-up Eagles secondary that could be missing top cornerback Darius Slay (concussion, questionable).
Hopkins didn't practice Wednesday for non-injury-related reasons, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hopkins began last week in a similar fashion before neck and back issues kept him sidelined Thursday and rendered him questionable ahead of a Week 14 game against the Giants. He ended up playing in the victory over New York, gathering in nine of 11 passes for 136 yards. With no health concern to blame for Wednesday's absence, he's in the clear for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Hopkins wasn't present at the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Last week, Hopkins was listed as a non-participant Wednesday due to a non-injury reason. He then remained absent from practice Thursday with neck and back issues before capping the week with a limited session Friday. He proceeded to suit up in Sunday's win over the Giants and put together a bounce-back performance, notching his first 100-yard effort in four games. It'll be interesting to see if Hopkins is dealing with similar or new health concerns, or whether his absence to begin Week 15 was maintenance-related.
Hopkins (neck) caught nine of 11 targets for 136 yards in Sunday's 26-7 win over the Giants.
Hopkins eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the sixth time this season, easily leading the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. In fact, no other Cardinals player even reached 30 receiving yards. The star wide receiver has thrived in his first season with Arizona, totaling 94 catches for 1,155 yards and five touchdowns heading into a Week 15 matchup with the Eagles.
Hopkins (neck) is listed as active Sunday against the Giants.
Despite fitting in just one limited session prior to this contest, Hopkins will be out there for the Cardinals' passing attack. He's been fairly quiet during the team's current three-game losing streak, averaging 5.6 YPT and scoring one TD on his 28 targets. Hopkins will look to bounce back against the Giants' 18th-ranked pass defense (242.3 yards per game).
Hopkins (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, but coach Kliff Kingsbury expects the wide receiver to play, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Hopkins has a track record of playing through injuries at a high level, and his Friday return to practice -- albeit as a limited participant -- suggests he should be ready to play. We should know for sure by 11:30 a.m. ET, as the Cardinals have an early kickoff for their trip to the East Coast.
Hopkins (neck/back) is practicing Friday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hopkins missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but his return at the end of the week puts him on track for Sunday's game against the Giants. Despite his frequent injury-report appearances, Hopkins has played 122 of a possible 124 games to this point in his NFL career.
Hopkins (non-injury/neck/back) didn't practice Thursday.
Listed as a non-participant for a non-injury-related reason on Wednesday's practice report, Hopkins now has a pair of health concerns attached to his name. As such, there's a shred of doubt about his potential to play Sunday against the Giants, but he could quell all concerns by returning to practice Friday. In the end, Hopkins' status should be watched closely as the week draws to a close.
Hopkins caught eight of 13 targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Rams.
The Cards' No. 1 wideout again faced tough coverage -- this time from Jalen Ramsey -- but he still grabbed a four-yard TD late in the third quarter, his fifth score of the season. Hopkins also hauled in enough yardage to reach his sixth career 1,000-yard campaign. His run of difficult matchups continues in Week 14 against James Bradberry and a Giants defense that just stifled Russell Wilson in an upset win.
Hopkins caught five of seven targets for 55 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Patriots.
Hopkins' target share was limited in a difficult matchup with star cornerback Stephon Gilmore, but he still led Arizona in targets, catches and receiving yards. Unfortunately for Hopkins and the Cardinals, a late Zane Gonzalez miss on a go-ahead field goal attempt opened the door for the Patriots to kick the winning field goal on the game's final play. Hopkins has 77 catches for 967 yards heading into a Week 13 matchup against the Rams, leaving him just 33 yards shy of reaching 1,000 for the sixth time in the last seven seasons.
