The last time Arizona Cardinals fans saw DeAndre Hopkins in action, he was putting himself back into the game against the Green Bay Packers on October 28. Since then, Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury says he’s had a few chats with Hopkins to make sure his star receiver understands the importance of having him healthy.

We all know that Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury has done a phenomenal job in his third-year, amounting to a 9-2 record. Kingsbury’s even getting interest from Oklahoma in the college ranks. NFL insider Ian Rapoport was asked if Kingsbury was interested in the highly-coveted job. Rapport’s answer was short and to the point. “No. No,” Rapoport said.

    As Lincoln Riley takes his talents to Southern California, Kliff Kingsbury could be taking his to Norman, Oklahoma. Or will he? The Arizona Cardinals head coach is reportedly on Oklahoma’s wishlist for its next head coach after Riley accepted the head coaching position at USC on Sunday, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. With one year left on his current deal, Kingsbury sidestepped questions about the Oklahoma head coaching vacancy on Monday.

    With Lincoln Riley heading for USC, the list of Oklahoma coaching candidates to replace him is reportedly led by a current NFL head coach: Kliff Kingsbury. Lincoln Riley delivered a shock to the Oklahoma football program on Sunday with the news that he’ll be leaving Norman and taking the vacant USC Trojans job. That, of course, leaves the Sooners with a vacancy at the position. Joining other high-profile programs such as LSU in searching for a head coach, Oklahoma should have their pick of almost anyone they want to hire. And apparently they’re swinging for the fences, at least if some reports are to be believed. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Oklahoma has already put together a shortlist of candidates for replacing Lincoln Riley as head coach. At the top of that list is Arizona Cardinals head coach (and former Big 12 rival) Kliff Kingsbury.

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Kliff Kingsbury has proven his coaching chops on many occasions over the past decade, developing elite quarterbacks, piling up points on the scoreboard, producing an entertaining brand of offensive football that fans enjoy and opposing coaches respect. There’s only one real problem on his resume. Unfortunately for him, it’s a big one. He hasn’t won much. That’s finally starting to change for the 42-year-old Kingsbury, who has helped push the Arizona Cardinals to the NFL’s best record this season. The Cardinals (9-2) are in the middle of their long-awaited bye week before they return to prepare for a road game against the Chicago Bears on Dec. 5. Kingsbury has become one of the leading candidates for NFL Coach of the Year this season, winning football games despite key injuries and COVID-19 absences that have kept some of the team’s best players and coaches — including himself — off the field at various times.

    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — A horrible start turned into a very bad Sunday afternoon for the Arizona Cardinals, who have now lost two of three games and are limping into their final game before a long-awaited bye week. Arizona (8-2) played easily its worst game of the season in a 34-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. The Cardinals fell into a 17-0 hole by the end of the first quarter, a 23-0 hole by halftime, and were never particularly competitive against a team that came into the game below .500. There were some obvious reasons for those problems — two in particular. The Cardinals played their second straight game without MVP-contending quarterback Kyler Murray and three-time All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins, severely limiting the offense against Carolina’s solid defense. Even so, coach Kliff Kingsbury wasn’t in the mood for an Arizona sob story. “Everybody’s dealing with (injuries). Everybody around the league,” Kingsbury said. “They had their backup quarterback as well, who came in and executed at a high level, so that’s not an excuse for us.” Kingsbury has a point. The...

    In a most unpredictable of NFL seasons, with only the Detroit Lions showing true consistency — and not quite what you seek — pinpointing the best performances at the halfway mark is a particularly difficult task. For example, who is the front-runner for Coach of the Year with the likes of Kliff Kingsbury, Mike Vrabel, Matt LaFleur, Sean Payton and John Harbaugh performing so well? With reigning Offensive Player of the Year Derrick Henry probably sidelined for the remainder of the regular season after another dominant two months, who deserves the nod? Is three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald deserving of an unprecedented fourth honor? Here’s what some members of the voting panel think: MVP This seems to be by invitation to quarterbacks only. “It’s a tossup right now,” says Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk. “Kyler Murray’s chances actually might have decreased with the Cardinals’ victory over the 49ers as they won easily without him and with Colt McCoy, who is a career backup.

The news world for the Arizona Cardinals in terms of injuries was a tad slow on November 11, as the injury report remained nearly the same as the day before.

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury called Murray a game-time decision and said he wants to see how the quarterback’s ankle does after the return to practice before making a decision. Murray did not play against the 49ers last Sunday and Colt McCoy was able to pilot the Cardinals to a win in his absence. While Murray was able to return to practice, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins remained out with a hamstring injury. Hopkins did not practice at all last week either and joined Murray on the inactive list against the 49ers. Kingsbury said Hopkins will also be a game-time decision.

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Quarterback Kyler Murray was back at practice on Friday, potentially giving the Arizona Cardinals a boost heading into Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers. Murray missed a game for the first time in his three-year career last weekend against the San Francisco 49ers because of an ankle injury. Backup Colt McCoy played well in Murray’s absence, completing 22 of 26 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown in Arizona’s 31-17 victory. But there’s no doubt Arizona’s offense is more versatile with Murray, who is always a threat to run. The 24-year-old quarterback is one of the league’s top MVP candidates through the first half of the season, completing nearly 73% of his passes for 2,276 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He’s also run for three touchdowns. Kingsbury didn’t commit to playing Murray on Sunday, but said the quarterback is trending in the right direction. “He’s progressing, it’s good to have him out there,” Kingsbury said. “We’ll see how he feels tomorrow, Sunday, and go from there.” The Cardinals have the NFL’s best record at...
    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Kliff Kingsbury learned some hard lessons last year while coaching his Arizona Cardinals through a late-season collapse from a 6-3 record to 8-8 and just missing a spot in the playoffs. Arguably the most important: In the NFL’s regular-season grind, less is sometimes more when it comes to the practice field. This is one of those times for the NFC West-leading — but very banged up — Cardinals. “I don’t want to give away our secret right now, but we’ve definitely made some adjustments at this juncture in our season to Wednesday more than anything,” said Kingsbury, who is in his third season. Arizona (8-1) is thriving with the best record in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t problems. In particular, the injuries are mounting: Quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) and star receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) missed last week’s win; three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt (shoulder) is likely out for the season; running back Chase Edmonds (ankle) could miss multiple games; and the offensive line has been in constant...

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals will be without three assistant coaches for their game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday because of COVID-19 protocols. Assistant head coach/special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers, running backs coach James Saxon and assistant offensive line coach Brian Natkin will not travel to the game. The Cardinals said on Friday that assistant special teams coach Devin Fitzsimmons will handle Rodgers’ special teams responsibilities.

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray didn’t practice for a second straight day on Thursday because of an injured ankle, casting doubt on his status for the team’s upcoming game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Murray hurt his left ankle on the final drive of Arizona’s 24-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Thursday, which was the team’s first loss of the season. “Just taking it one day at a time,” Murray said on Wednesday. “Not really putting anything on it, just like I said, taking it one day at a time and seeing where it goes.” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Murray could play on Sunday even if hasn’t practiced up until that point.

Despite the quarterback’s declaration that he’s “good,” Murray needs the mini-bye that comes after playing on a Thursday night. “I know he was sore today,” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN. “Hopefully, the next two or three days off will be good for him. We’ll see where he’s at next week.” Murray, who is in his third season since the Cardinals made him the No. 1 overall choice, has never missed a game.

    How this suburban school board became the hottest issue in the Virginia governors race More than 2,000 Inner Mongolia tourists quarantined over COVID-19 fears Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was listed as questionable with a hamstring injury heading into the team's Week 8 "Thursday Night Football" game against the Green Bay Packers. When Hopkins reaggravated the injury early in the contest, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury had all but decided that the 29-year-old was done for the night. © Michael Chow/The Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins Hopkins had other ideas.

    Thursday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals ended in shocking fashion after Arizona wideout A.J. Green failed to turn around to catch what could have been the game-winning touchdown with seconds left. Instead, the Cardinals took their first loss of the season. The conclusion of the final Cardinals drive confused everyone from Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury to NFL Network analyst and Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin. Trailing 24-21 with 15 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Arizona was at Green Bay’s nine yard line. At best, the Cardinals would score the game-winning touchdown. At worst, they’d kick a chip shot field goal to send the game to overtime. About that. Arizona’s Kyler Murray dropped back to pass and immediately looked toward Green in the end zone. He was being covered by cornerback Rasul Douglas, who was actually on Arizona’s practice squad until Green Bay signed him earlier this month. Green made contact with Douglas as Murray threw the ball exactly where he wanted. Just one problem: for some reason, Green didn’t turn around. Instead,...
