K Hopkins to I-R

Posted by Chris Brown on October 7, 2013 – 1:09 pm

Head coach Doug Marrone made a roster move at the kicker position Monday, but it might not be the one most were expecting.

Marrone put rookie kicker Dustin Hopkins on injured reserve Monday. Hopkins has not been active the first five weeks of the regular season due to a groin injury suffered days before the season opener.

He was getting close to returning and practiced last Monday and Tuesday on a limited basis, but did not practice at all on Wednesday.

Coach Marrone said they have been unable to get Hopkins better.

Dan Carpenter has been a very effective kicker since joining the club and now will continue to do so for the remainder of the season.
