Wide receiver Anquan Boldin and running back J.J. Arrington might miss the Cardinals’ game at New England on Sunday because of injuries.
Boldin is a tough guy, and you figure that he would play if there was something on the line for the Cardinals. But seeing that Arizona has already clinched the NFC West and has no chance of locking up a first-round bye, there’s really no reason to even risk it.
And before you fantasy leaguers get upset and curse Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, realize that quarterback Kurt Warner is still expected to play. That is, if his one touchdown performance last week didn’t ruin your season.
Steve Breaston would get the start if Boldin is out, but it’s hard to imagine that he would still be available in most leagues. Jerheme Urban would be Arizona’s No. 3 receiver.
