Marrone: Hopkins won’t be ready for Thurs.

Posted by Chris Brown on October 1, 2013 – 10:26 pm

Bills head coach Doug Marrone said rookie K Dustin Hopkins is working his way back from his groin injury, but he’s not all the way back yet.

“I think we’re still working on the kickoff part of it,” said Marrone. “We’re still a little bit day to day with that. As far as PATs and field goals I don’t think there’s a problem.”

Hopkins was listed as limited in practice for the first time since suffering the groin injury prior to the season opener.

When asked if he’d be ready for Thursday night’s game against Cleveland, Marrone simply said, “No.”

That means for the fifth consecutive game Dan Carpenter will handle the Bills kicking duties.
