The Arizona Cardinals have lost wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins for at least the rest of the regular season but it appears they will have both James Conner and Chase Edmonds available this weekend when they take on the Detroit Lions.

Edmonds was designated to return from injured reserve last week and has practiced the last two weeks. He is on track to be activated on Saturday. Conner suffered an ankle injury at the end of the Cardinals’ Monday night loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He did not practice early in the week but got limited work on Friday and is officially questionable to play.

That said, head coach Kliff Kingsbury believes both will play.

“I feel good about it,” he said after practice on Friday. “I think Sunday he warms up, feels good and he’ll be rolling.”

As for Conner, “Same, I feel good about it,” he said.

Edmonds missed four games with an ankle injury and is clearly going to be activated Saturday, based on Kingsbury’s comments.

Getting Edmonds back will give the Cardinals the one-two punch they had early in the year.

Before his injury, Edmonds rushed for 430 yards on 5.7 yards per attempt and caught 30 passes for 211 yards.

Conner has rushed for 661 yards and 14 touchdowns this season, averaging 3.7 yards per carry, and he has also caught 29 passes for 303 yards.
