Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury expects WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) to be a "full go" for training camp. His 2021 season ended in Week 14 with a torn MCL that required surgery. That came with a 6-week timetable for return, so his status for the start of 2022 camp was never in question. Hopkins, of course, is suspended for the first 6 games of the upcoming season for violating the league's PED policy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the NFL is suspending Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins 6 games for violating the PED policy. Assuming he doesn't get it reduced on appeal, Hopkins' absence creates season-opening opportunity for Arizona WRs Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Rondale Moore -- and it delivers a big blow to any best-ball drafters who combined Hopkins with QB Kyler Murray on their early rosters. We'll watch for any further developments with the situation, but Hopkins obviously tumbles down our WR rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) "could be back" for the NFC Championship or Super Bowl, but that it'd be "unrealistic" to expect him back any sooner. That jibes with the 6-week timetable for return we got for Hopkins earlier this week. We'll see how Arizona deploys WRs Christian Kirk, A.J. Green, Rondale Moore and Antoine Wesley vs. the Lions today.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins is set for surgery to repair a torn MCL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hopkins is expected to be sidelined for 6 weeks, so he'll probably need Arizona to reach the NFC Championship to have a chance to play again this season. The last 2 games Hopkins missed, the Cardinals used A.J. Green and Antoine Wesley as their primary outside WRs, with Christian Kirk in the slot.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals expect WR DeAndre Hopkins to miss the rest of the regular season with a knee sprain. The team is "hopeful to get him back at some point in the postseason." It's worth noting here that NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Hopkins is "expected to miss Sunday and likely more." Those 2 reports don't necessarily clash, but might be reason to wait before dropping Hopkins from your roster right away if you can help it. However long he's out, Hopkins' absence can only help the target outlooks for the team's other pass-catchers. Christian Kirk and A.J. Green both look like top-30 options across fantasy formats for Sunday's game at Detroit.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins "is in danger " of missing Sunday's game vs. the Lions due to a knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hopkins is seeking more opinions on the injury, which usually isn't a good sign. We'll keep you updated on his status, but fantasy owners should be lining up backup plans for Week 15.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins suffered a leg injury in Monday night's loss to the Rams and is scheduled for an MRI, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. We'll update Hopkins' status as soon as we know more.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Bears. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but did not practice on Friday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Hopkins "could be used more sparingly than usual due to his injury and the weather conditions.” Check the WR rankings to see if Hopkins should be in your starting lineup.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury told NFL Network's Stacey Dales that QB Kyler Murray (ankle) and WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) will play vs. the Bears today. Kingsbury had previously called both guys game-time decisions, so they evidently checked out well today. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported this morning that Hopkins could be limited today, so he still carries more risk than usual in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Bears today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. But Hopkins "could be used more sparingly than usual due to his injury and the weather conditions," Schefter adds. Hopkins has been out since Week 8 with this hamstring injury and got in just 2 limited practices this week. The forecast for today's game in Chicago calls for rain, which might increase the odds Hopkins aggravates the injury. It's impossible to know exactly how much he'll end up playing today, leaving Hopkins as a risky fantasy start.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bears. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but did not practice on Friday. It's unclear if that was a planned day off or a setback. HC Kliff Kingsbury called Hopkins a game-time decision on Friday morning. We'll look for further updates on Hopkins and will get Arizona's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.
