The 2022 season hasn't even started and the Arizona Cardinals are already off to a rocky start. The NFL has suspended DeAndre Hopkins for six games, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Hopkins reportedly violated the NFL's Performance Enhancing Drug policy. He'll miss the first six games of the 2022 season, as a result.

Kyler Murray and the Cardinals will be without their top weapon for a third of the season.

"This era of Arizona Cardinals football has turned into a real bummer."

"NO OFF SEASON!!!"

It's possible the Cardinals knew about this before the 2022 NFL Draft and that's why they acquired Marquise "Hollywood" Brown in a trade. He's essential now more than ever.

"Ravens probably could have gotten a better deal for Hollywood Brown if this was known five days ago. #Leverage"

"Now we see why the Cardinals traded for Hollywood Brown. Also, A.J. Green has some early season appeal in redraft leagues with Hopkins out."

"...so like, is this why they overpaid for Hollywood Brown?"

The Cardinals offense won't be clicking as usual to start the 2022 season.

Hopkins will miss the first six games of the year.
