Hopkins (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
The same applies to QB Kyler Murray (ankle), with the duo's Week 13 status hinging on how things go for them at practice this week. Coach Kliff Kingsbury did note Wednesday that weather will not be a factor in determining Hopkins' availability for Sunday night's road game in Chicago.

Hopkins (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Dana Scott of azcentral.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Coming out of a bye, coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that he's hopeful Hopkins can return for Sunday's game in Chicago. The wideout's first practice since Oct. 22 is a big step in the right direction, even if he's listed as a limited participant. Hopkins last played in a game Week 8 against Green Bay (Oct. 28).

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday he's hopeful Hopkins (hamstring) will return to the field against Chicago in Week 13, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Kingsbury said the same of quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle), but the coach added that he won't confirm anything until he's evaluated both offensive stars at practice. Hopkins is coming off three straight absences, but it looks like he's trending toward a return after also having a bye week to get healthy.

Hopkins (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Seattle, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins still hasn't practiced since Week 7 or played in a game since Week 8. With a bye coming up in Week 12, the Cardinals will hope to get their star wideout back in the lineup for a Week 13 contest in Chicago on Dec. 5. Meanwhile, QB Kyler Murray (ankle) appears headed for another game-time decision Sunday afternoon in Seattle.

Hopkins (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins is approaching one month since his last appearance on the practice field (Oct. 22) and is exactly three weeks removed from his last game action (Oct. 28). With back-to-back games missed, he's matched his total DNPs from the first eight seasons of his career combined as he attempts to get past a nagging hamstring issue. The Cardinals are on bye after Sunday's visit to Seattle, so the team may be aiming for Hopkins to be healthy for a Week 13 road matchup with the Bears. Still, the star wideout has one more opportunity to practice this week and potentially change the tone around his availability.

Hopkins (hamstring) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins now hasn't taken part in a practice since Oct. 22 and missed back-to-back games after being limited to two catches and 24 percent snap share in a Week 8 loss to the Packers. Prior to his current bout with a hamstring injury, he had missed just two games combined through his first eight seasons, so another absence Sunday in Seattle would eclipse that number this month alone. But with a Week 12 bye on tap, the Cardinals may be eyeing the post-midseason respite for Hopkins returning to action. Still, he has two sessions left this week to get on the field and potentially put himself on track for an appearance.

Hopkins (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Panthers.
EDGE Analysis
In Hopkins' last appearance, a Week 8 defeat to the Packers, he spent most of the contest on the sideline while earning 24 percent of the snaps on offense and notching two catches (on two targets) for 66 yards on a balky hamstring. In the meantime, he hasn't stepped foot on the practice field and missed one contest. With A.J. Green back from the reserve/COVID-19 list and Rondale Moore (neck) able to clear the concussion protocol, the Cardinals' group of wide receivers otherwise is healthy Week 10 (Christian Kirk, Antoine Wesley and Greg Dortch are the other options).

Hopkins (hamstring) remains questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers but isn't expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Per Rapoport, unless Hopkins shows unexpected improvement as the game's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff approaches, Hopkins is trending toward sitting out for a second straight week. Meanwhile, the report adds that fellow wideout Rondale Moore (neck) should be available Sunday to work alongside A.J. Green and Christian Kirk.

Hopkins (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Carolina, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
He was held out of practice all week but still will be given the chance to suit up in a game-time decision. Hopkins seems less likely to play than both QB Kyler Murray (ankle) and WR Rondale Moore (concussion), both of whom are also being treated as game-day calls ahead of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. A.J. Green (illness) has been cleared to play.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury expects Hopkins (hamstring) to be a game-time decision heading into Sunday's matchup with the Panthers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
It doesn't exactly look promising for Hopkins, who missed another practice Friday while starting QB Kyler Murray (ankle) rejoined his teammates. Still, the Cardinals likely will list Hopkins as 'questionable' and give him another 48 hours to make progress with the hamstring before a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday. Kingsbury said Murray and WR Rondale Moore (concussion) also are considered game-day decisions this week.
