Anquan Boldin’s weekly spin on the NFL injury report has landed on questionable after he returned to a limited practice Friday.
Boldin is suffering from an ankle injury, but his ability to get some work in Friday is a good sign. If Boldin plays, it will continue a remarkable run of health for the Cardinals franchise that has helped key its turnaround over the last two years.
For the Giants, tackle Kareem McKenzie is expected to play despite being listed as questionable with a groin injury. There are a number of players listed as probable, including running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who returned to practice Friday.
The Cardinals-Giants game will be an interesting test for Arizona’s top-ranked rush defense and New York’s somewhat diminished running game. The Cardinals also figure to look hard at last week’s Saints tape to see how New Orleans’ similar timing passing offense spread the Giants out and took advantage of its secondary.
The Giants are favored by seven in the game, but it wouldn’t stun me if the Cardinals come away with the victory. Florio disagrees.
