Hopkins didn't practice Wednesday due to a rib injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins has yet to hit the 100-yard mark through two contests, but he nonetheless has been productive en route to 10 catches (on 12 targets) for 137 yards and three touchdowns. He may be poised to reach triple digits in receiving Sunday against a Jaguars defense that has allowed 11.2 yards per target to wideouts this season, which is good for third worst in the NFL. Having said that, Hopkins first will have to work his way through a health concern to be cleared for game action.

Hopkins hauled in all four targets for 54 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-33 win versus the Vikings.
EDGE Analysis
It was a reasonable enough follow-up to Hopkins' Week 1 receiving line of 6-83-2 on eight targets. However, in a game in which quarterback Kyler Murray piled up 400 yards and three TDs through the air, one would have hoped for more when looking at the box score. That's until the Vikings' defensive game plan is taken into account: Hopkins was on the receiving end of double coverage after recording four catches through the Cardinals' first two possessions of the game, and he didn't see a target after the 5:49 mark of the first quarter. He'll look for his first 100-yard performance of the campaign next Sunday in a road outing against the Jaguars.

Hopkins caught six receptions for 83 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets at Tennessee on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
The Titans posed no resistance against Hopkins, who might have done more damage yet if not for the strong play of fellow wideouts Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore. Hopkins looks as locked in as ever, and given his high-volume role, he's a top option each week. That will remain the case in Week 2 as Hopkins takes on the Vikings.

Hopkins (undisclosed) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins sat out the Cardinals' entire preseason slate, the result of an undisclosed health concern. While the nature of the issue never was revealed, he's now back and ready for a Week 1 matchup at Tennessee, whose defense allowed the second-most catches (16.8 per game) to opposing wide receivers last season.

Hopkins (undisclosed) didn't see the field during Friday's preseason loss to the Chiefs, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins hasn't been on the practice field much during training camp and even missed all the sessions leading up to Friday's exhibition, his second DNP this month. But he doesn't need many reps to be ready for Week 1, when he'll still have Kyler Murray under center and a refurbished receiving corps around him, namely A.J. Green, Christian Kirk and rookie Rondale Moore. Despite the increased competition for targets, Hopkins is the unquestioned No. 1 WR in Arizona after putting up a 115-1,407-6 line in his first year with the team in 2020.

Hopkins (undisclosed) isn't practicing Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins missed practice last Wednesday and now has missed three consecutive sessions since Friday's preseason win over the Cowboys. Nagging injuries have been part of the package for a few years now, but we'll start to take notice if he still isn't back at practice by next week. An appearance in Friday's preseason game against Kansas City seems unlikely.

Hopkins (undisclosed) wasn't spotted at practice Sunday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Fellow wide receiver A.J. Green is a bit further ahead in his own recovery from an unspecified injury, returning Sunday with individual drills on a side field. Hopkins doesn't necessarily require many practice reps to be in top form, and so far in training camp he's followed a similar regimen to his first campaign with the Cards last season, getting one vet day off and otherwise missing a few other practices. It remains to be seen if the team will have all of Hopkins, Green and Kyler Murray available for either of its last two exhibitions, but the trio all sat out Friday's preseason opener against the Cowboys.

Hopkins (undisclosed) isn't expected to play in Friday's preseason contest versus the Cowboys, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Per usual, Hopkins has received a veteran day off in training camp while also missing the occasional practice with an unspecified injury. Assuming he sits, he likely will be joined by Kyler Murray and A.J. Green (undisclosed), who also are in street clothes ahead of Friday's kickoff. Meanwhile, rookie second-rounder Rondale Moore (undisclosed) participated in pregame warmups, giving him a good shot to see a lot of reps in his potential pro debut.

Hopkins missed Wednesday's practice with a minor injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins missed a practice or two in late July with a minor injury, and he received a veteran's day off last Thursday. The Cardinals haven't been able to keep any of their wide receivers on the practice field consistently, with A.J. Green, Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore battling various unspecified injuries and Andy Isabella now landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list for a second time. Hopkins provides stability, regardless of his practice participation.

Hopkins had a veteran's day off Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins missed a practice last week with a minor undisclosed injury, but his latest absence has been chalked up to rest/maintenance. He's been in and out of practice for a few years now, typically playing through one lower-body injury or another without showing any ill effects. Hopkins has missed only two games in eight pro seasons, and he's played more than 90 percent of his team's offensive snaps in each of the last seven.
