Not much is new regarding Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin and his injured left ankle — it’s getting better, but he still hasn’t practiced.
Boldin sat out his second consecutive day of practice Thursday as he continues to nurse a sprained left ankle and sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. He told reporters that his ankle is a bigger concern than his knee, both of which he injured in the season finale against the Packers.
Boldin is the biggest question mark, injury-wise, for the Cardinals as they near Sunday’s rematch with the Packers.
“Every day I get up is better, which is an encouraging sign for me,” Boldin said.
The news appears more positive on the defense, where CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (toe/knee) and FS Antrel Rolle (thigh) returned to take part in a limited portion of practice and DE Calais Campbell (broken left thumb) also participated for the second consecutive day.
“It felt real good to be out there flying around, to be back in with these guys and practicing and working towards something good,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “I felt good out there running, peddling and covering. I don’t feel any soreness right now.”
