Heading into Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, the Cardinals were expected to limit the snaps for wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins if he was active for the game.

Afterward, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said, “I think he looked good. Made the huge catch early on the fourth down, which kind of set the tone and he's always a factor. They got to account for him each and every snap that he's out there. And I think that was a good game to not play that many snaps and still be able to have an impact.”

While Hopkins didn’t play the percentage of snaps he normally does (in the mid-80s to mid-90s), he still played more than other wide receiver.

Hopkins played 39 snaps (74%), followed by A.J. Green (36/68), Christian Kirk (32/60), Rondale More (23/43) and Antoine Wesley (11/21).

Meanwhile, the five starting offensive linemen played all 53 snaps, while no defense player participated in all 76. Linebacker Isaiah Simmons was one short of 100%, while linebacker Jordan Hicks had two fewer.
