Expect Hopkins to start the season fully healthy and with similar level of play to 2019. His injury history is about as safe as any veteran at his position. Low overall concern.
2019 - Right shoulder separation (likely grade 2 vs 3 AC joint sprain), sustained in January
2017 - Left calf strain (1 game missed)
2015 - Concussion (no games missed)
2014 - Right wrist ligament tear, treated with surgery after season (no games missed)
2013 - Concussion (no games missed)
2019 - 15/16
2018 - 16/16
2017 - 15/16
2016 - 16/16
2015 - 16/16
2014 - 16/16
2013 - 16/16
Expect Hopkins to be at full strength to start 2020. He was healthy for the majority of 2019, so expect a continuation of his performance trajectory.
Hopkins has successfully avoid major injury so far in his career, and has demonstrated the ability to play through minor injuries when medically cleared. Therefore, we consider him one of the lowest risk elite players in the NFL.
