Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will be a game-time decision for Sunday's Week 3 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to a rib injury, head coach Kliff Kingsbury announced Friday, according to Darren Urban of the team website.

Hopkins played all but two snaps against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. However, he hasn't practiced at all this week.
The five-time Pro Bowler has 10 catches for 137 yards and three touchdowns in two games this season. He was third in the NFL last season with 1,407 receiving yards.
If Hopkins is unable to play Sunday, Christian Kirk will lead Arizona's passing attack. The 24-year-old has eight catches for 135 yards and two scores this season. The Cards will also deploy A.J. Green, Andy Isabella and Rondale Moore.
Arizona is first in the NFC West, tied with the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers, after winning its first two games of the season.
Third-year quarterback Kyler Murray has been especially impressive, completing 73.5% of his passes for 689 yards and seven touchdowns against three interceptions. He has also rushed for 51 yards and two scores.
