Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will be game-time decision for the team’s matchup against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Friday.

Kingsbury added the team wants to remain cautious with the wide receiver this early in the season.

“I don’t think we’ll know until Sunday. We’ll see how he feels,” Kingsbury said. “If he can go, he’ll go, but we don’t want to put him out there — it’s early in the year — if he isn’t feeling his best.”

Hopkins was listed with an ankle injury throughout the week, though it’s questionable how concerning his appearance on the official report might be. Arizona so far this year has rested him on Wednesdays on a non-injury basis. The receiver spoke to reporters on a Zoom call Wednesday before the injury report was released and was not asked about his absence from practice because his rest days have been routine.

Hopkins has missed only two out of 112 regular season games in his career thus far, with one being due to injury.

Fellow wideout Christian Kirk is also a game-time decision. The WR had been practicing on a limited basis all week as he deals with a groin injury.

Safety Chris Banjo, who did not participate in practice all week, will not play due to a hamstring injury, Kingsbury said. Safety Budda Baker, recovering from thumb surgery, will also not suit up.

As for the Panthers, offensive linemen Russell Okung (groin) and Dennis Daley (ankle) are listed as questionable.
