Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins appeared on the injury report with an unexpected hamstring injury on Thursday, missing yesterday's practice session with the issue.

NFL fans were concerned by this seemingly out-of-the-blue injury. But according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury, there's nothing to be worried about.

Hopkins' absence at practice yesterday was "more of a maintenance thing," per team insider Tyler Drake.

Kingsbury is not concerned about Hopkins' availability for Monday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Hopkins returned to practice and participated in Friday's session.

After missing the first six games of the season under suspension, Hopkins returned to the Cardinals and provided an immediate impact. Through four games, the 30-year-old wide receiver has reeled in 36 catches for 396 yards and two touchdowns.

Cardinals wide receiver Marquise "Hollywood" Brown is questionable to play on Monday night after he was designated to return from the IR earlier this week.
