There’s a revolving door in the Arizona Cardinals‘ receiving corps.
Likewise, DeAndre Hopkins is set to return after serving his six-game suspension.

The Cardinals tweeted, “We have activated WR DeAndre Hopkins to the 53-man roster and have released K Matt Ammendola.”
With Ammendola gone, Matt Prater remains the Cardinals’ placekicker.
Hopkins was suspended for violating the league’s policy against performance-enhancing drugs.
The suspension and some injuries made Hopkins miss 14 of the last 16 games.
The Cardinals can use the boost provided by their star wide receiver, especially now that they are struggling at 2-4.
That record is a downgrade, considering they won their first seven games last season.
This year, the Cardinals are 16th in yards per game and 21st in points.
Hopkins played and started in 10 games last season, tallying 42 receptions for 572 yards and eight touchdowns.
Cardinals Receiving Corps Is Stacked
They also have tight end Zach Ertz.
Having everyone back should help the Cardinals become one of the more formidable teams on offense.
Likewise, Kyler Murray will need as many receivers as possible to help defeat their division rivals in the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.
Putting the pieces together is Arizona’s next goal, especially with Anderson coming on board.
But they will be difficult to beat if they work to perfection.
Meanwhile, Prater is still listed as out even if Ammendola was already waived.
This development could indicate his return in their next game.
The Cardinals will face the New Orleans Saints in Week 7 and the Minnesota Vikings in Week 8.
