Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins wasn’t on the practice field Thursday, but one of his teammates doesn’t think there’s anything to worry about on Sunday.

Hopkins is dealing with a rib injury and has not practiced yet this week. Hopkins only missed two offensive snaps in Week Two and A.J. Green said he doesn’t expect to have to pick up any of Hopkins’ slack against Jacksonville this weekend either.

“Hop don’t miss games,” Green said, via Darren Urban of the team’s website.

Hopkins has missed two games since entering the NFL. The last one came while he was with the Texans in 2019.

Urban passed along word that tackle Kelvin Beachum, cornerback Byron Murphy, and tackle Justin Murray were also missing from the practice field.

  1. Green is correct; Hop don’t miss games… This happened more than once last year and he always showed up for the game. He’s Mr. reliable.

  2. Hop is such a pro, and the Cards are so deep at WR right now, we can afford to let Nuk take a few days off in practice if he’s nursing an injury. I’d rather have a banged up but rested Hopkins than most other receivers in the league, especially when you have Kirk and Moore absolutely popping off right now, and a safe pair of hands in Green, even if Hopkins is not 100%
    Everyone knows Hopkins will play, and everyone knows he will be ready, whether he has practiced or not.
