5x Pro Bowl WR DeAndre Hopkins has been suspended 6 games for violating the NFL’s Performance Enhancing Drug policy.

DeAndre Hopkins, the wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League, has been suspended for six games for violating the league’s Performance Enhancing Drug Policy, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Cardinals knew about the suspension and that contributed to the team’s trading for Baltimore Ravens receiver Marquise Brown in the NFL draft on Thursday. Also, Christian Kirk’s moving on to Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency was a big loss for the team.

Hopkins was absent on the field for the final four games of the last season due to a knee injury and a separate hamstring injury. But he managed to finish the season with 42 catches for 572 yards and eight touchdowns.

The five-time pro bowler has been a big support to the Cardinals since arriving as the receiver in 2020.

Cardinals will get to know which games Hopkins will miss after the schedule is released on May 12. He is eligible to play for the team after the first six weeks.
