DeAndre Hopkins downgraded to out, will not play vs. Falcons

The Arizona Cardinals made a change to their final injury report Saturday before they traveled to Georgia to take on the Atlanta Falcons Sunday.

Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was originally listed as questionable for the game after missing practice Friday with a knee issue. On Saturday, when the team was set to reevaluate him and see how he feels, he was downgraded to out.

He will miss his first game since returning from his six-game suspension to start the season.

Facing the 5-10 Falcons, the Cardinals will have quarterback David Blough starting, the fourth quarterback to start for them in as many games. They don’t have Hopkins, Zach Ertz, at least 3 of their starting offensive linemen, Budda Baker, Zach Allen, Byron Murphy, Antonio Hamilton and maybe Marco Wilson.
