Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins out Sunday vs. Falcons with knee injury

Dec 31, 2022, 12:33 PM

The Arizona Cardinals’ myriad of injuries continues with wideout DeAndre Hopkins being downgraded to out for Sunday’s contest against the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced.

Hopkins did not participate in practice for the first time all week on Friday and was added to the injury report with a knee injury.

The Cardinals’ No. 1 receiver missed six games to open the year due to suspension and could potentially miss the final two as well from the knee injury as the team looks toward the 2023 NFL Draft.

The Cardinals sit at 4-11 and are on their fourth quarterback in as many weeks with David Blough taking the reins of Kliff Kingsbury’s offense against Atlanta.

Despite only playing in nine games this year, Hopkins has 717 yards on 64 catches, both team highs. He has hauled in three touchdown passes on the year, good enough for second on the offense.

Arizona has struggled to find the end zone through the air as a unit, snagging 15 total TDs.

The Cardinals will also be missing defensive lineman Zach Allen due to a hand injury and cornerback Antonio Hamilton due to a hip injury.

Arizona will square off against Atlanta on the road at 11 a.m. on Sunday on 98.7, the Arizona Sports app and
