NFL: Cardinals deprived of DeAndre Hokpins against Falcons

Another blow for the Arizona Cardinals.

Receiver DeAndre Hopkins will miss Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Flasks with a knee injury suffered this week.

Hopkins appeared on injury reports on Friday and with the Cardinals’ elimination already confirmed, he will miss his seventh game of the season.

Hopkins missed the Cardinals’ first six games due to a suspension for violating NFL anti-doping policy. The team went 2-4 in his absence.

He excelled on his return and leads his team with 64 receptions for 717 yards. He scored three passing touchdowns, one shy of point guard Zach Ertz, who missed five games and will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

The Cardinals’ losses have made life tough for the Cardinals, who have just four wins in 15 games.

Arizona has lost seven of nine games since Hopkins’ return to play and the team is now expected to call on a different fourth quarterback in its last four games.

Quarterback Kyler Murray suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 14, then backup Colt McCoy has been showing signs of a concussion since Week 15.

After Trace McSorley’s disappointing performance last week, who completed just 53.3% of his passes and suffered three turnovers, David Blough received a vote of confidence going into the next game.

It’s still unclear if Hopkins will be able to return for the final game of the season.
