Cardinals-Seahawks injury report: WR DeAndre Hopkins out
The Arizona Cardinals will be without wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Head coach Kliff Kingsbury ruled the All-Pro pass catcher out due to a hamstring injury that will now force him to miss a third straight game.
Kingsbury added that quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) will be a game-time decision after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday.
Budda Baker will play in Seattle, the head coach said Friday, after a heel injury limited him in practice Wednesday and held the safety out altogether on Thursday and Friday.
However, Kingsbury did say offensive lineman Justin Pugh (calf) “looks like” he’ll be out while OL Max Garcia (Achilles) has a chance to play.
In total, 17 Cardinals were listed on Friday’s injury report.
Under center, backup QB Colt McCoy was limited on Wednesday and Thursday after he suffered a pectoral injury during Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. He was a full participant on Friday.
Nose tackle Corey Peters was back but limited Friday after missing two days with a shoulder issue.
The Cardinals take on the Seahawks Sunday before entering the bye week. That will give Arizona a chance to get rest and potentially healthier ahead of the season’s final stretch.
On Seattle’s side of the report, its leader in receiving yards and touchdown catches D.K. Metcalf returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday’s with a foot injury.
He’s routinely missed practice time over the last several weeks while battling the injury, but he has not missed a game this year. Metcalf was limited Friday but will play Sunday.
Quarterback Russell Wilson was a full participant after playing his first contest since Week 5 Sunday following a stint on injured reserve (finger).
Seattle safety Jamal Adams got added to the injury report Thursday as limited with a groin issue. He was a nonparticipant on Friday.
