Injury roundup: Cardinals' Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins to play against Bears

The Arizona Cardinals will finally see the return of their offensive stars Sunday.

Quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) and receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) will play against the Chicago Bears, Cards coach Kliff Kingsbury confirmed to NFL Network's Stacey Dales ahead of Sunday's clash. Both players were listed as questionable. They're also officially active.

Murray injured his ankle in a Week 8 loss to Green Bay. In eight games this season, the third-year QB out of Oklahoma has passed for 2,276 yards (285 YPG) with 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Battling a hamstring injury also aggravated in Week 8, Hopkins has just 486 receiving yards in eight games but has caught seven touchdown passes.

The Cardinals (9-2) take on the Bears (4-7) at Soldier Field in Chicago at 1 p.m. ET.

Other injury news we are keeping an eye on ahead of Sunday's Week 13 games:

  • Cincinnati Bengals starting center Trey Hopkins (ankle) and starting right tackle Riley Reiff (ankle) are inactive for Sunday against the Chargers. Neither practiced this week and both were listed as questionable. This could be bad news for the Bengals, as the Chargers have one of the league's top pass-rushing defenses.
  • The Denver Broncos are getting their offensive line back, as tackles Garett Bolles (ankle) and Bobby Massie (ankle) are both expected to play against the Chiefs despite being listed as questionable, sources tell Rapoport.
  • Houston Texans running back David Johnson (illness, thigh) is inactive for Sunday versus the Colts. He was not expected to play, Rapoport reported.
  • Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson (heel, knee) is a game-time decision, and while the assumption most of the week was that he wouldn't play against the Rams, Robinson is feeling better and at least has a realistic chance, Rapoport reports. The pregame workout will be key.
  • Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who missed practice Friday with an illness, was at the Saturday walk-through and should play against the Broncos, according to Rapoport.
  • Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) and wide receiver DeSean Jackson (calf), both of whom are listed as questionable, are expected to play against Washington barring a setback, per Rapoport.
  • Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham, slowed this week with a hip injury, is expected to play and should be a bigger part of the offense Sunday against the Jaguars, a source tells Rapoport. As for running back Darrell Henderson (thigh), he is hopeful to play even if he may not have a full workload.
  • New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones's neck injury will likely sideline him multiple weeks, per Rapoport.
  • New York Jets receiver Corey Davis (groin) is active against the Eagles. He was listed as questionable to play.
  • Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (ankle) is inactive for Sunday versus the Jets. Backup Gardner Minshew will make his first start of 2021.
  • Washington Football Team wide receiver Curtis Samuel (groin) is still listed as questionable, but is getting healthier and is expected to play Sunday versus the Raiders, per Rapoport.
