Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rondell Moore suffered a hamstring injury during practice on Thursday.

After undergoing an MRI, the 22-year-old wideout has been officially ruled out for the Cardinals' season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Moore returned to practice on Wednesday after suffering a different injury problem.

The severity of his new hamstring injury is unknown,

But it would exclude him for at least the first game of the 2022 season.

Moore has a history of hamstring injuries. A Grade 1 strain ended its 2019 season at Purdue,

And due to this injury, he had to miss three games in 2020.

The second-round pick also missed his rookie NFL season in 2021 with a concussion and a neck injury,

Finishing the year with 54 catches for 435 yards and a touchdown.

In addition to Moore's absence, the Cardinals would also be without star wide receiver D'Andre Hopkins,

who is suspended for the first six matches of the season.

Veteran tight end Zach Ertz is also suspected with a calf injury.

Marquis "Hollywood" Brown and A.J. Green will take the lion's share of the goal in Sunday's season opener.
