The Arizona Cardinals just tweeted out week 8’s injury report ahead of Thursday night’s showdown with the Packers. JJ Watt was listed as ‘out’ and DeAndre Hopkins is considered to be ‘questionable’ with a sore hamstring.
Arizona can probably outscore Green Bay despite Watt’s absence due to the lacking lacking offensive fire power without star receiver Devante Adams. However, losing Hopkins makes this game more of a grind. It’s a good thing the Cardinals pulled the trigger on that Zach Ertz deal now, huh?
Can never have too much talent for an extended season.

Their report also included tight end Darrell Daniels, offensive lineman Max Garcia, and defensive lineman Rashard Lawrence.
Luckily for Cardinals fans, and fans of the NFL, Hopkins is expected to play, according to NFL reporter Ari Meirov.
“If it’s Hop and it’s a T.V. game I know he’ll try and be out there,” Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said this morning to reporters.
Again, no J.J. Watt for Sunday. Max Garcia is questionable (achilles) so they'd be down to Sean Harlow at center if he can't play.

Either way, the Cardinals have plenty fire power to get passed the Packers with an ailing Deandre Hopkins.
