Cards WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) getting second opinion
Arizona Cardinals All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is getting a second opinion on his leg injury after having an MRI on Tuesday, Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday.
NFL Network reports Hopkins suffered a knee injury in Monday night’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Hopkins will not participate in Wednesday’s walkthrough and is in danger of missing this week’s game in Detroit, per the report.
Also, Kingsbury said running back James Conner is day-to-day with an ankle injury. He also had an MRI on Tuesday.
Hopkins was injured on the next-to-last drive of Monday’s game after leaping for a jump ball. He got up slowly and retreated to the sideline and was not on the field for the Cards’ final unsuccessful drive. He finished the game with five catches for 54 yards on a team-high 12 targets.
Hopkins has 42 catches for 572 yards and eight touchdowns in 10 games this season. He missed three games with a hamstring injury earlier this season.
Conner leads the Cardinals in rushing with 661 yards and rushing touchdowns with 14.
The Cardinals (10-3) have a one-game lead in the NFC West and travel to face the Lions (1-11-1) on Sunday.
