Steve Keim: 'Would Not Rule It Out' DeAndre Hopkins Back For Playoffs

GM thinks Larry Fitzgerald 'content' in his current life

Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is set to have a "procedure" on his injured knee, GM Steve Keim said on Friday, adding that he wasn't sure when Hopkins would be back.

But Keim, during his appearance on the "Burns and Gambo" show on 98.7, Arizona's Sports Station, added that he was "certainly hopeful he could potentially be back for the playoffs."

"I would not rule it out," Keim said.

The GM said he was confident in the other wide receivers available -- as well as the offense as a whole -- would be able to make up for the loss of Hopkins.

"The depth that we have, to me, is exceptional," Keim said.

-- Keim was asked about Larry Fitzgerald and potentially reaching out to the retired(?) future Hall of Famer to play.

"I think Larry is probably at Pinehurst on the ninth green," Keim said. "Enjoying his life with a sasparilla. I think Larry is content where he is and really happy with how his career and life has gone with the Phoenix Suns."

Keim was asked again specifically if there might be a reunion. "I think he's really happy right now," Keim said.
