Cardinals stars Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins expected to return Week 13 vs. Bears

The Arizona Cardinals look likely to get back their two biggest offensive weapons in Week 13 for the first time in over one month.

The last time either Hopkins or Murray played was during the Cardinals' Week 8 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 28.

Murray didn't practice at all leading up to Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers but finally made it back to the field in a limited capacity on the Friday before Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers. The third-year signal-caller ended up sitting out the game vs. the Panthers, and despite having a chance to suit up in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks, the team opted to use its Week 12 bye to get both Pro Bowlers closer to full strength.

Sans Murray, Arizona has primarily turned to journeyman Colt McCoy under center. In six games — including three starts — this season, McCoy has completed 68 of his 90 passes for 684 yards and three touchdowns against one interception.

Even with missing three games this year, Hopkins still leads the Cardinals in receiving touchdowns with seven and is third in both receptions (35) and receiving yards (35).

The Cardinals play the Chicago Bears at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
