Hopkins sat out Thursday's practice with a minor unspecified issue, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
With coach Kliff Kingsbury indicating that the star wideout will be back on the field soon, we'll view Hopkins as day-to-day. Heading into the coming season, Hopkins heads an Arizona WR corps that also includes A.J. Green, Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore and KeeSean Johnson.

Hopkins was able to build on-field chemistry with quarterback Kyler Murray during the Cardinals' offseason program, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Murray was banged up at the end of last year, but he and Hopkins returned healthy for the start of the offseason program, participating in both voluntary OTAs and mandatory minicamp. The 29-year-old wideout accounted for 29.4 percent of Arizona's targets last season, ranking third in the NFL with 1,407 receiving yards and tied for second with 115 receptions. A better rushing attack or a bounce-back season from offseason acquisition A.J. Green could cost Hopkins a few targets this year, but he's still among the handful of favorites to lead the league in the category.

Hopkins caught four of his 10 targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 18-7 loss to the Rams.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins still attracted a robust number of offensive looks in what turned out to be the Cardinals' 2020 finale, but a first-quarter injury to Kyler Murray (ankle) put a dent in the star receiver's output. With Murray unavailable for more than 40 minutes of game action before his fourth-quarter return, Hopkins produced his second-lowest yardage total of the 2020 campaign. Despite a down performance to close out his eighth pro season, Hopkins carries a fourth consecutive Pro Bowl nod, 115 receptions, 1,407 yards and six touchdowns out of his debut campaign with the Cardinals. He's under contract with Arizona for four more seasons, providing ample time for him and his 23-year-old signal-caller to continue strengthening chemistry.

Hopkins (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins steadily increased his involvement in practice throughout the week, advancing from no participation Wednesday to limited activity Thursday before turning in a full workout Friday. With the Cardinals choosing not to put a designation on his name, Hopkins should be in the clear to serve as Kyler Murray's top target in Week 17. Expect Hopkins to draw shadow coverage from elite cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who held the wideout to eight receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets back in Week 13.

Hopkins (hip) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
After sitting out Wednesday's session due to a hip issue, Hopkins made some progress with an appearance on the field Thursday. He's regularly received days off in his first season with the Cardinals, so the increase in reps is consistent with his weekly preparation. Friday's injury report could clear up Hopkins' status entirely for Sunday's game with the Rams in L.A.

Hopkins (hip) was held out of practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Just before halftime of this past Saturday's loss to the 49ers, Hopkins went to the locker room after failing to haul in a pass in the back left corner of the end zone. He continued to gut out what was believed to be an upper-body injury and played a typical 91 percent of the snaps on offense, but he put up just 48 yards on eight catches and 12 targets. Upon the release of the Cardinals' first Week 17 practice report, though, Hopkins is listed with hip next to his name. He'll look to get past the concern in advance of Sunday's road matchup with the Rams.

Hopkins (upper body) caught eight of 12 targets for 48 yards during Saturday's 20-12 loss to the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins left the game near the end of the second quarter after hurting himself while going for a ball in the end zone, but he later returned to the game. Although he caught 75 percent of the passes thrown his way, he didn't record a single reception of 10 yards or longer as he finished averaging 6.0 yards per catch. Hopkins piled up 305 yards over the last two weeks and was coming off his best yardage total in a Cardinals uniform, so this disappointing effort was likely quite frustrating to fantasy managers who rode him deep into the playoffs. He'll likely be assessed over the next couple of days but appears to be on track to play in next Sunday's season finale against the Rams.

Hopkins left Saturday's game after suffering an injury to his upper torso, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
It's unclear whether Hopkins suffered an injury to his upper chest or abdomen, but the star receiver was clearly in pain after failing to catch a touchdown reception in the back left corner of the end zone nearing the end of the second quarter. He walked off under his own power but was immediately taken to the locker room and it's unclear what his status may be for the rest of Saturday's game.

Hopkins wasn't present for the media-access portion of Wednesday's practice, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Wednesday's injury report will reveal whether Hopkins' absence is classified by the Cardinals as "not-injury related," or if he's managing an injury in advance of Saturday's game against the 49ers. In the Cardinals' Week 15 win over the Eagles, Hopkins caught nine of his 11 targets for 169 yards and a touchdown.

Hopkins caught nine of 11 targets for 169 yards and a touchdown while gaining one yard on his lone carry during Sunday's 33-26 win over the Eagles.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins averaged 18.8 yards per catch as he notched a new season high in yardage, thanks in large part to a 45-yard gain, which tied his second-longest of the campaign. He capped off his huge performance with the decisive 20-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Hopkins, who was coming off a big game against the Giants, now has 1,324 yards to go along with six touchdowns in his initial season with the Cardinals. He will look to add to his numbers next Saturday against the 49ers.
