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.
