Cardinals rule out Boldin vs. Packers

The Cardinals are without WR Anquan Boldin in Sunday’s NFC Wild Card matchup against the Packers.

Boldin was listed among the Cardinals’ inactives about 90 minutes before kickoff after he was missing from pregame warmups when the team’s other receivers entered the field. The move isn’t a major surprise, as NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reported earlier this week that, internally, Boldin was considered very unlikely to play.

Officially, though, Boldin was listed as questionable. He missed practice all week because of a sprained left ankle and sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee sustained in the regular-season finale.

A number of other Arizona starters who had been listed as questionable — DE Calais Campbell (thumb), OG Deuce Lutui (back), CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (knee, toe) and S Antrel Rolle (thigh) — are all active.

Rodgers-Cromartie was adamant all week that we would play; Lutui returned to practice fully; and Campbell is expected to play with a new cast on his hand.

Here are the Cardinals’ inactives: FB Nehemiah Broughton, S Rashad Johnson, LB Reggie Walker, OL Herman Johnson, DE Jeremy Clark and TE Stephen Spach. The No. 3 QB is Brian St. Pierre.
