Whisenhunt: Boldin not seriously hurt

After tests were done on receiver Anquan Boldin’s spine, and no serious injuries were detected, the receiver was cleared to fly back to Arizona on Sunday night, Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said that his Monday news conference.

“All the test results were positive,” Whisenhunt said.

Boldin was injured in the final moments of the Cardinals’ 56-35 loss to the Jets, as the receiver was hit simultaneously by safety Kerry Rhodes from behind and safety Eric Smith from the front while attempting to make a catch in the end zone with 27 seconds remaining in the game. Boldin was strapped to a stretcher with his helmet still on and carted off the field. He was then transported to a Manhattan hospital for further tests, which all came back negative.

“That was just a scary, scary play and I can’t get it out of my mind,” Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner said after the game.

During his Monday news conference, Whisenhunt said that he felt that the NFL will look at the hit, which the coach feels falls under being dangerous to a player.
