Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins Return To Play Against Bears

Quarterback, wide receiver active for first time since October


CHICAGO -- Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins are back.

The Cardinals quarterback and the team's top receiver will play Sunday against the Bears, each of them returning after missing three games and more than a month because of ankle and hamstring injuries, respectively.

Also on the good news front: cornerback Byron Murphy, who suffered a foot injury in practice, tested his injury in pregame and is also active for the Cardinals.

The full (and short) inactive list:

  • WR Andy Isabella
  • QB Trace McSorley
  • CB Jace Whittaker
  • G Justin Pugh (calf)

Murray and Hopkins last played against the Packers on Oct. 28. In that game, Murray suffered a sprained ankle on the next-to-last play, while Hopkins was limited to 15 snaps with his hamstring already a problem. In their absence, the Cardinals won two of three.

The rain has come down some already at Soldier Field and there is wind here in the WIndy City, but the weather should not have a huge impact on the game.

For the Bears, wide receiver Allen Robinson, who was doubtful, is officially inactive, as are key defensive linemen Akiem Hicks and Mario Edwards.

And now, your weekly moment of ze..., er, Maxx.
