Multiple Arizona Cardinals players are missing from practice

Veteran journalist and Arizona Cardinals reporter Darren Urban moments ago broke some alarming news for Cardinals fans. According to the reliable news reporter, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray missed the practice session this morning. The other notable absentees from the morning practice of Cardinals were Wide Receivers DeAndre Hopkins, A.J Green, and Running Back Jonathan Ward.

The one common link between these players is that they all were struggling with fitness before the match. Their absence means only one thing – the players have still not recovered from their injury. But it is not all gloom for the Cardinals as Rodney Hudson, Rashard Lawrence, Zaven Collins, and Max Garcia were all seen practicing.

DeAndre Hopkins’ slick shoulder feint against the Packers has taken the internet by storm

Despite not being match fit, Hopkins had to make an emergency return for the all-important clash against the Packers. He started the match for the Cardinals but then had to exit owing to a hamstring discomfort. After his exit, the WR had to return once again owing to a poor showing by the Cardinals offense.

In his first-quarter appearance, the wide receiver took a slick catch off Kyler Murray’s 55 yards throw. The highlight of the catch was how well Hopkins evaded his marker with his elite ball play skills, hand-eye coordination, and composure. It truly was a spectacular catch!
