Three Cardinals Starters Hurt Going Into Sunday’s Playoff Game

As the Cards get set to have a rematch with the Packers at home in the wild card playoff game on Sunday, the team may not have three players who fill significant roles for the team.

Wide receiver Anquan Boldin has a sprained left ankle, defensive end Calais Campbell a broken left thumb and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie a bruised left kneecap. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Boldin was sore and undergoing an MRI on Monday.

Whisenhunt seemed optimistic that Campbell and Rodgers-Cromartie would be ready when Arizona has the rematch with the Pack on Sunday. “I’m always optimistic that we’re going to have these guys because this is a playoff game and guys want to play,” Whisenhunt said. “They understand that. The sense of urgency is definitely there. That’s why I feel like you’ve got a chance of getting these guys back.’

He was more vague about Boldin’s status. “We’ll just have to see how he progresses as the week goes,” Whisenhunt said.
