  • Browns' Dustin Hopkins: Consistent in opener

    Hopkins converted three of three field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 24-3 win over the Bengals in Week 1.

    For one week, the Browns and all those interested in the team's fate could breathe a sigh of relief. After Cade York's uneven finish to 2022 and troubling signs exhibited during the preseason, a team with playoff ambitions brought in Hopkins to stabilize its kicking game. He did so opening week.

  • Chargers' Dustin Hopkins: Back at practice

    Hopkins (undisclosed) returned to practice Thursday, Eric Smith of the Chargers' official site reports.

    Hopkins, who had been dealing with an unspecified injury, thus kicked for the first time since the second day of camp (July 27). Now that Hopkins is back on the field, the 32-year-old is slated to compete with Cameron Dicker for the Chargers' Week 1 placekicking assignment. The two are listed as co-starters on the team's posted unofficial depth chart, but considering that Dicker has made 58 of 64 kicks (90.6 percent) of his attempts during camp thus far, Hopkins will need to look sharp going forward in order to make his case to claim a roster spot.

  • Chargers' Dustin Hopkins: Dealing with injury

    Hopkins (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Hopkins also didn't practice Sunday, and it's unclear if he took the field anytime between then and now. The 32-year-old is currently in competition with Cameron Dicker for the team's kicking duties, so any continued missed time could be detrimental to his chances.

  • Chargers' Dustin Hopkins: Doesn't participate in scrimmage

    Hopkins didn't participate in Sunday's scrimmage due to an undisclosed injury, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Although it's unclear what health concern Hopkins is dealing with, he's battling a physical issue that has prevented him from kicking over the past week, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. He's competing with Cameron Dicker for the Chargers' kicking job, and a timetable for Hopkins' return remains to be seen.

  • Chargers' Dustin Hopkins: In line to compete for kicking job

    Hopkins (hamstring) is expected to compete with Cameron Dicker for the Chargers' kicking job in 2023, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    A hamstring injury limited Hopkins to five games in 2022, which paved the way for Dicker to close out the season as the team's placekicker. Dicker -- who the Chargers have extended a 2023 contract tender to -- made 19 of his 20 field-goal attempts in a Los Angeles uniform while connecting on all 22 of his extra-point tries. Prior to his injury, Hopkins had hit nine of his 10 field-goal attempts and made all 12 of his extra-point tries. With that in mind, as long as both kickers remain under contract and Hopkins is past his hamstring woes, an offseason job competition looms.

  • Chargers' Dustin Hopkins: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Hopkins (hamstring) is considered doubtful to play Sunday against the Chiefs.

    Hopkins has been sidelined with a hamstring injury for the Chargers' last three games, and he logged back-to-back DNPs over the first two practices of Week 11. While he did manage to participate in a limited capacity during Friday's session, the 32-year-old still appears set to sit out again Sunday.
