Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins will miss Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons due to a knee injury, the team said Saturday.
Hopkins was initially added to the injury report on Friday and was listed as questionable. But the club downgraded his status one day later.
It will be the seventh game Hopkins misses this season. He sat out the first six while serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drugs policy.
Hopkins has 64 receptions for 717 yards and three touchdowns in nine games this season. He is in his third campaign with Arizona after spending seven seasons with the Houston Texans.
Hopkins, 30, is a five-time Pro Bowl selection — the first four coming with the Texans. He has 853 career receptions for 11,298 yards and 71 touchdowns in 145 career games (all starts) over 10 seasons.
The other Cardinals ruled out for Sunday’s game are quarterback Colt McCoy (concussion), defensive end Zach Allen (hand) and cornerback Antonio Hamilton (hip). David Blough will start at quarterback for Arizona (4-11), which has dropped five straight games.
