Biggs: Boldin does some work, questionable for Sunday
Anquan Boldin returned to the practice field today for the Arizona Cardinals and was limited in his activity.
He’s been listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday’s game at Chicago and it will be interesting to see what approach the club takes with him. Boldin has a high ankle sprain suffered back on Oct. 11 and it’s not getting better. It was an issue for him two weeks ago at the New York Giants and he was forced out of the game last week vs. Carolina. He’s said it’s not going to be 100 percent the rest of this season, and that’s probably a fair statement. But the question is whether or not the team needs to sit him down and let him rest in an effort to get him to the point that he can make it through games without being hobbled further.
Boldin isn’t the kind of player that is going to volunteer to sit out, and the Cardinals might have to hide his helmet and those that are a similar size to keep him out of the game. The Bears fully expect to see Boldin.
“He looked fine to me on tape,’’ cornerback Zack Bowman said. “He was running good. He’s tough. Look at him last year (with the fractured jaw). That’s why even though they say ankle sprain, he’s going to play.’’
If Boldin does play, Bowman will be the cornerback who draws him the majority of the time if the Bears do as expected and match Charles Tillman up on Larry Fitzgerald.
