49ers-Cardinals injury update: Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins questionable for MNF
The Arizona Cardinals’ injury report for a crucial Week 11 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers included a hamstring issue popping up for star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins that kept him limited on Friday.
Head coach Kliff Kingsbury called it a “maintenance issue,” a sign Hopkins should be ready to play on Monday Night Football.
Hopkins, though, was ruled questionable on Saturday’s injury report that included game statuses. Quarterback Kyler Murray was also ruled questionable.
Murray (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion while backup Colt McCoy (knee) was a full participant on Friday after both were limited the day prior. Murray did the same last week before not playing while McCoy’s knee injury in the game only shortly kept him sidelined before he finished it out. Murray and Hopkins were limited on Saturday’s estimated injury report.
Kingsbury ruled out starting left tackle D.J. Humphries (back), who will be replaced again by Josh Jones.
In addition, No. 1 cornerback Byron Murphy Jr. was ruled out Saturday after not participating all week with a back issue. Pro Bowl safety Budda Baker played through an ankle injury on Sunday and did not have a game status listed Saturday, so he is good to go.
Kicker Matt Prater (right hip/illness) is also set to play Monday.
For San Francisco, defensive lineman Arik Armstead (foot/ankle) remains out, while DL Samson Ebukam (quadricep/Achilles) is questionable. Armstead has played in just three games and Ebukam missed his first game last week.
