Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will fight his six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Hopkins, via KPNX and Cameron Cox of nfl.com, said it was a team effort trying to figure out what was going on, claiming he wasn’t taking any supplements.

Hopkins said:

Hopkins added:
