NFL roundup: Latest league news from Friday, Sept. 24

DeAndre Hopkins has missed just two games in his storied career. Will Sunday be the third?

The Arizona Cardinals' Pro Bowl wideout is a game-day decision for Sunday against the Jaguars, per coach Kliff Kingsbury. Hopkins, who has not practiced all week, is nursing a rib injury and is officially listed as questionable. He played all but a couple snaps in last week's win over the Vikings, while also catching his third touchdown of the year.

Despite Hopkins' inactivity in practice, teammate A.J. Green told reporters Thursday that "he'll be fine."

"Hop don't miss games," Green asserted.

Hopkins hasn't since Week 17 of the 2019 season, when his Texans had already locked up the AFC South title.
