Hopkins (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins' name has showed up on Cardinals injury reports on occasion this season, but only last week did his availability seem to be in question due to a hamstring issue. He proceeded to play last Thursday against the Packers but logged just 24 percent of Arizona's offensive snaps as he shuffled on and off the field. The injury again is keeping Hopkins out of practice this week, and coach Kliff Kingsbury told Weinfuss that he's "not sure if he will be ready to go this week or not." With A.J. Green testing positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, there's a distinct chance the Cards will be without their top two wide receivers Sunday at San Francisco. In such a scenario, Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore would serve as the team's primary options at the position, with Antoine Wesley and Andy Isabella on hand for more work.

Hopkins (hamstring) wasn't present for the media-access portion of Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins, who headed into last Thursday's loss to the Packers as a game-time decision, was able to suit up for the contest, but was limited to 15 snaps after apparently aggravating his hamstring issue. As a result, the wideout's status is worth monitoring as Sunday's game against the 49ers approaches. If Hopkins is limited or out this weekend, added WR looks would be available for A.J. Green, Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore.

Hopkins (hamstring) secured both targets for 66 yards in the Cardinals' 24-21 loss to the Packers on Thursday night. He spent large portions of the game sidelined with a hamstring injury, and Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports the receiver ran back onto the field on his own "a couple times" without the coaching staff's consent as the game went on.
EDGE Analysis
Weinfuss adds that coach Kliff Kingsbury clearly didn't seem pleased with his star receiver risking a potential longer-term injury, and even with Hopkins' attempts to help out his team, the Cardinals still ended up suffering their first loss of the season. The star wideout will now look to get back to health in time for a Week 9 road showdown with the Chiefs a week from Sunday.

Hopkins (hamstring) returned to Thursday's game against the Packers.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins had been sidelined for most of the game after apparently aggravating his hamstring injury in the first quarter. However, he returned midway through the third quarter and should provide a big boost to the Cardinals' offense if he can remain on the field for the remainder of the contest.

Hopkins aggravated his hamstring injury and is questionable to return to Thursday's game against Green Bay, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins exited the game midway through the first quarter after making a 51-yard catch. He was seen testing his hamstring on the sideline but has not checked back into the game since his initial exit. Hopkins did not practice at all during the short week, and he now may be forced to miss the rest of Thursday's contest.

Hopkins (hamstring) is listed as active Thursday against the Packers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins was considered a game-time decision after not practicing on a short week of prep due to a hamstring injury. Following a pregame warmup, though, he'll be available to Arizona's offense versus a Green Bay defense that will be without Week 1 starting cornerbacks Jaire Alexander (shoulder) and Kevin King (shoulder).

Hopkins (hamstring) is expected to play Thursday night against the Packers, barring any pre-game setbacks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
The wideout is officially listed as questionable for the contest after being listed as a non-participant on the Cardinals' posted Week 8 practice/injury reports, but he nonetheless appears on track to suit up. Official confirmation of his availability will arrive upon the release of inactives prior to Thursday night's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

Hopkins (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Packers, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Despite not practicing at all during Week 8 prep, Hopkins will be a game-time decision with the expectation that he'll be available Thursday, coach Kliff Kingsbury told Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic on Wednesday. Hopkins is notorious for gutting out injuries and suiting up on game days, so it'd be something of a surprise if the Cardinals include him among their inactives, but such a call won't be known until 90 minutes before Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

Coach Kilff Kingsbury expects Hopkins (hamstring) to play in Thursday's game against Green Bay, though the wideout may be treated as a game-time decision, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Game-time call or not, Kingsbury expects his star wideout to suit up Thursday night for a nationally televised matchup with a fellow NFC heavyweight. Still, Hopkins likely will be listed as questionable on the final injury report, after missing practice both Monday and Tuesday. It remains to be seen if he gets any work in at Wednesday's practice, though it'll likely just be a walkthrough.

Hopkins (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant at Tuesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins wasn't spotted on the field earlier in the day in the portion of the practice that was available to the media, and the wideout apparently didn't get in any reps behind the scenes either. Now having been listed as a non-participant on both of Arizona's first two Week 8 practice reports, Hopkins' availability for Thursday's game against the Packers can't be viewed as a sure thing. Hopkins would assuage some of the concern about his status if he returns to the field for Wednesday's session as at least a limited participant.
