Christian Kirk caught 1-of-5 targets for 0 receiving yards in Arizona's Week 1 win over the 49ers.
Kirk was mixed in at all levels of the field (including a few failed deep shots) but was ultimately overshadowed by DeAndre Hopkins' 16 targets and 40% target share from Kyler Murray. With Larry Fitzgerald (4/34) and Hopkins both sponging usage, it's truly a question mark whether Kirk's weekly floor is safe, or if this was simply a blip on the radar. He should be entrusted as a low-floor WR3 for at least one more week in Arizona's next matchup against Washington. Sep 13 9:38 pm (EST)
- Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury still believes third-year pro Christian Kirk is an "ascending player."
- Kirk admitted that the ankle injury he sustained Week 4 troubled him in the second half of the season, but the wideout said he won't require surgery during the offseason, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports. "It's not a fun deal, but I didn't want to miss any more games," Kirk said, who sat out three contests before returning to action Week 8. "If I can get out there and contribute and help the team, I'm going to do it. But to get to the offseason and get healthy and get [the ankle] 100 percent, I can't wait to get it right."
- Kirk caught seven of 10 targets for 60 receiving yards during Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Rams. All Christian Kirk News
