Bad news for the Cardinals, as wide receiver Anquan Boldin, along with inside linebacker Gerald Hayes(notes), did not practice today, putting their status for Saturday against the Saints in serious doubt.
Boldin has been nursing left ankle and knee injuries he suffered in the Cardinals’ regular-season finale against Green Bay. He was inactive for their 51-45 overtime victory over the Packers in the first round of the NFC playoffs Sunday.
Hayes suffered a right ankle injury on the first play of the playoff game but played with it the rest of the way. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said both players “certainly will be a game-day decision.”
