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.

Hopkins (hamstring) doesn't appear to be practicing Friday morning, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
It's obviously a poor sign for his chances to play in Sunday's game against Carolina, though coach Kliff Kingsbury has mentioned before that Hopkins can suit up on a Sunday without practicing during the week. If there's any shot for that to happen, the Cardinals will list him as 'questionable' on their final injury report Friday afternoon.

Hopkins (hamstring) wasn't in attendance for Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins will thus go down as a non-participant on the injury report for the second straight day. The wideout historically hasn't needed full practice reps to gain clearance for game days, but because Hopkins sat out last week's win over the 49ers with the hamstring injury, the Cardinals may want to see him get back on the field in some capacity Friday to allow him to suit up Sunday against the Panthers. Along with Hopkins, starting quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) missed last week's game and has yet to resume practicing, leaving the statuses of both of Arizona's offensive stars up in the air for Week 10.

Hopkins (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins continues to deal with a hamstring issue that has plagued him since preparations for a Week 8 matchup with the Packers. He was on and off the field during that contest, playing 24 percent of offensive snaps on his way to two catches (on two targets) for 66 yards. However, Hopkins didn't practice last week before the Cardinals deemed him inactive for Week 9 at San Francisco, and he appears to have the same reality this week. Like he said Monday, coach Kliff Kingsbury considers Hopkins to be day-to-day, per Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com, so the possibility exists for the wide receiver to get into practice Thursday and/or Friday. As for the rest of Arizona's wideouts, A.J. Green (illness) remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list, while Rondale Moore (DNP, neck/concussion) was listed on the injury report, too.

Hopkins (hamstring) is considered day-to-day after missing Sunday's 31-17 win at San Francisco, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins was inactive for the third time in his eight-plus seasons as a pro in Week 10. He'll look to get back on the practice field for the first time since Week 7 prep Wednesday through Friday, which would set himself up to return to action Sunday versus the Panthers. Coach Kliff Kingsbury was murky surrounding the state of quarterback Kyler Murray, who missed the first game of his career Week 9 due to a medial left ankle sprain. Kingsbury relayed he doesn't "have a feel" for Murray's potential to play Sunday. If Murray doesn't gain clearance to return this weekend but Hopkins does, the wide receiver will be on the receiving end of passes from Colt McCoy.

Hopkins (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game in San Francisco.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins gave it a go on his balky hamstring Week 8 against the Packers but managed just two catches (on two targets) on a 24 percent share of offensive snaps. He didn't practice at all this week before receiving a questionable designation for Sunday, and that trended more towards 'out' as the Cardinals became less hopeful for active status, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. After he worked out prior to the contest, Arizona has opted to keep Hopkins in street clothes along with Kyler Murray (ankle). With the premier QB-WR duo sidelined and A.J. Green (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Colt McCoy will be throwing to the likes of Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore, Antoine Wesley, Andy Isabella and Greg Dortch in Week 9.

Arizona doesn't sound optimistic that Hopkins will be able to play Sunday against San Francisco but he will test his injured hamstring in pregame warmups, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. He is listed as questionable on the official injury report.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins doesn't seem to have made much notable progress in his recovery from the injury, as he was listed as a non-participant in practices Wednesday through Friday. Even if he manages to suit up Sunday, he could face limitations on his snap count. Arizona may also be forced to use backup quarterback Colt McCoy with Kyler Murray also a game-time decision.

Hopkins (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest in San Francisco and is being viewed as a game-day decision by head coach Kliff Kingsbury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Since the Cardinals and 49ers won't kick off until 4:25 p.m. ET, fantasy managers planning on using Hopkins may have few alternatives at their disposal if the wideout ends up being sitting out or is limited in the contest. The latter scenario played out in the Cardinals' Week 8 loss to the Packers last Thursday, as Hopkins -- who had been nursing the hamstring injury coming into the contest -- played a season-low 24 percent of the team's offensive snaps and finished with two receptions for 66 yards. Though he had the benefit of a longer turnaround for the Week 9 contest, Hopkins doesn't seem to have made much notable progress in his recovery from the injury, as he was listed as a non-participant in practices Wednesday through Friday. Even if he manages to suit up Sunday and doesn't face any notable limitations with his snap count, Hopkins could be catching passes from backup quarterback Colt McCoy, as starter Kyler Murray (ankle) is also being treated as a game-day decision after failing to practice in any capacity this week.

Hopkins (hamstring) wasn't on the field for the open portion of Friday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins looks destined to go down as a non-participant on the Cardinals' Week 9 practice report for the third day in a row, as does quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle). Head coach Kliff Kingsbury has previously said that Murray doesn't necessarily need to practice this week to suit up Sunday in San Francisco, and the same could apply for Hopkins, who has a history of suiting up in games with little or no practice reps beforehand. The Cardinals' final practice report will be revealed later Friday and will indicate whether Hopkins will carry a designation into the contest or be ruled out ahead of the contest. If he's listed as questionable, Hopkins' status could come down to a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

Hopkins (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
For the second week in a row, Hopkins is tending to a hamstring injury, sitting out the first two sessions of Week 9 prep. He played through the issue last Thursday against the Packers, but he also only logged a season-low 24 percent snap share on his way to two catches for 66 yards on two targets. Coach Kliff Kingsbury expressed uncertainty Wednesday whether Hopkins would be available for Sunday's game at San Francisco, according to Weinfuss, so his status should continue to be watched to get a sense of his potential to play this weekend. With fellow starting wide receiver A.J. Green (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Cardinals could be down to Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore, Antoine Wesley and Andy Isabella at the position Sunday.
