Hopkins (illness) wasn't in attendance for Thursday's practice and is expected to go down as a non-participant on the Cardinals' report, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hopkins has previously received maintenance days in practice earlier this season while tending to a rib injury, but it's an ailment that will keep him off the field for the second day in a row to begin Week 6. The Cardinals haven't suggested that Hopkins' illness is related to COVID-19, so at this stage, there's still reason for fantasy managers to expect the standout wideout to be ready to suit up Sunday in Cleveland. Ideally though, Hopkins would return to practice in some fashion Friday to clear up any concern about his status.
