Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (not injury related,neck, back, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 14. Hopkins is expected to play according to HC Kliff Kingsbury. The Cardinals play early on Sunday.
Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Friday that WR DeAndre Hopkins has been dealing with "lingering soreness" in his neck and back, but is good to go Sunday.
Hopkins has not been an automatic WR1 lately, and hope of a solid week falls on Kyler Murray's shoulder.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (not injury related, neck, back) missed practice again Thursday. We'll see what he can do on Friday before hitting the panic button. He's probably just getting veteran's rest.
Hopkins misses practice weekly with non-injury related designations (managing reps/load management), but the neck and back listing should at least have fantasy managers a little concerned. With that being said, the expectation is that Hopkins will return to practice in some form on Friday, and be listed as questionable at worst on the final injury report. One of the toughest receivers in the league, the Cardinals will likely have to force Hopkins to sit while they are fighting for their playoff lives. Hopkins is our 11th ranked receiver for Week 14.
