The Cardinals have placed DeAndre Hopkins on injured reserve


December 18, 2021

The Cardinals have officially placed DeAndre Hopkins on injured reserve and have activated Chase Edmonds, Ian Rapoport of reports. The Hopkins placement was a foregone conclusion as he underwent surgery for a torn MCL on Friday. That surgery is expected to sideline him for at least six weeks and could also be season-ending. Edmonds has missed four straight games and most of a fifth due to an ankle injury. Edmonds was close to returning versus the Rams this past Monday but thought the extra few days would be prudent to make sure the ankle is as close to 100% as possible.

The loss by the Cardinals to the Rams on Monday has pushed them from the top seed in the NFC to the third seed. The Cardinals are having what could be viewed as a strange season. They are undefeated on the road, 7-0, but only .500 at home, 3-3.

The Cardinals are a 12.5-point favorite (-110) over the Lions on Sunday and are -650 on the money line. The game has an over/under of 47.5, over (-106), and under (-114). You can find the lines and props for this game and all others at
