DeAndre Hopkins Injury Updates | Shark Bites

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Seahawks. He only got in a limited practice on Friday with what HC Kliff Kingsbury called a “lingering” ankle injury. It obviously adds risk to Hopkins’ profile, but he remains a strong fantasy play vs. Seattle’s league-worst WR defense.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that Hopkins’ ankle injury is “lingering” and that he’s “hopeful” he’ll be able to play vs. Seattle. We’re expecting Hopkins to suit up but will look for an update on his status on Sunday morning.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He missed all 3 practices before playing against the Panthers back in Week 4, although he didn't look like himself in that game, managing just 41 yards on 7 catches. We'll see if Hopkins practices tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played a full allotment of snaps last week, and we haven't heard anything about this injury. We'll get another update on Hopkins' status tomorrow.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury said RB Kenyan Drake (foot) and WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) are "close" to returning to full practices. "We talked about all along we want to get them into game week and make sure they are comfortable with the game plan and then let them loose," Kingsbury said. "We know what we've got in them." We'll continue to keep an eye on both guys, but neither has moved down the rankings due to his injury.

The Texans have placed WR DeAndre Hopkins on the active/PUP list to begin training camp. Hopkins is coming off a shoulder injury that included tearing ligaments from the bone. He avoided offseason surgery, though, and has indicated he expects to be feeling better this season than he did last. Hopkins played through a foot issue as well for most of 2018. We'll watch him through camp but aren't currently worried for his regular-season status.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins revealed that he played through serious pain in 2018. "Last year was tough, not just physically but mentally," Hopkins said Saturday, via the Houston Chronicle. "It's the most banged up I've ever been playing football. I was dealing with serious injuries a lot of people would have sat down for. But we had a good team that depended on me, and I never gave a thought to not playing unless the doctors told me I couldn’t." Hopkins also shared that he tore ligaments in his shoulder “completely off the bone.” Wow. The 27-year-old set career highs with 115 catches and 1,572 yards last season. He’s fully expected to be ready for training camp.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s been limited in practice for most of the year, but this is a new injury and the 1st time he’s been questionable since Week 4. We’ve still heard nothing to suggest that Hopkins is in danger of missing this one, but we’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) isn't listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He sat out Thursday's practice but returned to a limited workout on Friday. Hopkins has a tough draw against the Jaguars this weekend, but remains a top 10 WR in our rankings. He scored in both games vs. Jacksonville last year.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is expected to play against the Colts today. He's on the injury report with thumb, ankle and hamstring issues, but there was never any concern about his availability. Keep Hopkins glued into fantasy lineups.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is dealing with a calf injury and is not expected to play in Sunday's finale against the Colts, according to insider Aaron Wilson. It'll be the 1st missed game of his career. Hopkins leaves behind a whopping 11.6 targets, but they're not worth a whole lot coming from QB T.J. Yates. Houston's passing game is 1 to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not practice on Thursday and is listed on the injury report with a toe. It's unclear if Hopkins just got the day off or is dealing with a legitimate injury. We'll learn more tomorrow.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said Monday that he's "1,000%" healthy after missing time in August with a thumb injury. We never sensed any concern about it. Hopkins is safe to fire up in Week 1 lineups.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will miss the 2nd preseason game with a hand injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it, and we don't have any other details. HC Bill O'Brien has said Hopkins is fine and that they're just making sure he's good to go for the regular season, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. We'll keep an eye on this, but we're not moving Hopkins in the WR rankings.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. He was added to the injury report on Friday but was listed as probable. Hopkins should be ready for his usual workhorse role and remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was added to the injury report on Friday as limited with a hamstring issue. He’s listed as probable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots, and insider Aaron Wilson confirms that he’s “expected to have his usual role.” Even with the 8:30 pm ET kickoff, Hopkins is safe to keep in fantasy lineups.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was held out of Wednesday's practice with a concussion.  It's the 1st we've heard of the head injury, which leaves him iffy for this weekend's game against the Bucs.  If Hopkins can't go, Cecil Shorts and Nate Washington would serve as Houston's top 2 WRs.

The Texans have signed WR Cecil Shorts to a 2-year deal.  The 27-year-old looked like a rising star back in 2012, when he posted a 55-979-7 line in 14 games.  His numbers have declined the past 2 seasons, though, as Shorts has dealt with crappy QB play and hamstring and groin injuries.  He has the inside track to the #2 WR job in Houston.  But QB questions and a run-first offense will limit his upside.  If this is all the Texans add at WR this offseason, DeAndre Hopkins is set up to be a target monster.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins revealed that he underwent wrist surgery shortly after the 2014 season.  It's unclear when he injured the wrist, but it did appear on the Week 17 injury report.  Hopkins had a pin and rod inserted to repair a torn ligament.  The hardware was removed this weekend, and Hopkins expects to be back to "regular activities" within the next couple of weeks.  The wrist shouldn't be an issue in 2015.  Hopkins posted a 76-1,210-6 line in his 2nd NFL season, finishing 14th among WRs in PPR points despite the Texans ranking 24th in passing offense.  He's capable of even more with better QB play.
