Cardinals' Anquan Boldin deemed ready to play on Sunday

Anquan Boldin TAMPA, Fla. -- Pool reporter John Czarnecki reports that Arizona receiver Anquan Boldin participated fully in practice today and showed no effects of the hamstring injury that had bothered him earlier in the playoffs.

“He looked good today, and he also looked good late last week,” Cardinals Coach Ken Whisenhunt said of Boldin. “We took it a little easier on him early last week just to be safe.”

The best pass completion of the day didn’t involve Boldin or Larry Fitzgerald or Kurt Warner -- or even Matt Leinart.

It was a sideline throw by third-stringer Brian St. Pierre to rookie Lance Long, who beat the first-team defense on the play.
