Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins suffers season-ending knee injury
It has been reported that wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins suffered a season-ending knee injury. The news of his injury came after the Arizona Cardinals’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night.
Adam Schefter and Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported that the Cardinals had hoped to have its star receiver back for the postseason.
Arizona, currently 10-3, acquired Hopkins from the Houston Texans ahead of the 2020 season. With him gone, the Cardinals are hanging on to maintain their Super Bowl hopes as the wide receiver is among the most productive receivers in the NFL. Hopkins averaged 99 receptions for 1,315 yards and eight touchdowns from 2014-20.
Hopkins has yet to announce whether he will need surgery as he is currently seeking a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache. According to coach Kliff Kingsbury, he underwent MRI on Tuesday and was looking for a second opinion starting from Wednesday.
Hopkins suffered the injury during the game against the Rams. He was attempting to catch a pass between two Rams defenders in the end zone with 1:13 remaining in the game and the defenders tackled him and landed on his legs.
He rolled over on his knees on the ground and had to leave the game. He had already missed three games this season due to a hamstring injury.
