Report: Boldin "virtually certain" to miss game

When a player is listed as probable on the injury report, he’s officially “virtually certain” to play that week.

Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin is listed as questionable, but NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora reports Boldin is “virtually certain” not to play against the Packers.

Boldin has a sprained MCL and a high ankle sprain. The ankle is believed to be a bigger problem.  ESPN called Boldin’s chances for playing “very bleak” earlier Friday.

If Boldin is out, Steve Breaston will start.  He’s hasn’t produced of late, but the Packers cornerback crew is thin after Charles Woodson.

Woodson (shoulder) was one of six Packers listed as probable.  The other five: Brandon Chillar (back), Chad Clifton (knee), Korey Hall (elbow), Johnny Jolly (foot), Mike Montgomery (ankle), and Ryan Pickett (hamstring).

Packers safety Derrick Martin is doubtful with an ankle injury.

For the Cardinals, Boldin is joined by five teammates all listed as questionable. Calais Campbell (thumb),  Deuce Lutui (back), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (knee, toe), Antrel Rolle (thigh), and Brian St. Pierre (back) are officially 50-50, but they are all expected to play.

Adrian Wilson isn’t buying DRC’s injury, “He’s got a little cut on his knee. It’s not all it’s cracked up to be. He thought he blew his knee out; he got a little cut.”

Boldin’s injuries, however, appear very real.

    I wonder how many of the scared queens fans will post on this one?????

    Cardinals play by play announcer said on NFL Network yesterday that in the Whisenhunt era as coach, Boldin has NOT started 7 Arizona games and Cards record for them is 6-1.

    I really don’t think this is major. Boldin has never been much of a downfield threat, he’s been more of a possession receiver/TE. I think the Cardinals really don’t lose anything with Breaston or Jerheme Urban in there…

  4. Pervy_Harvin says: Jan 8, 2010 9:39 PM

    How lucky for the Packers. Boldins physical play would have been too much for the weak Pack secondary. Consider it a gift. Warner will still pull out a Big Ben like performance with Breaston and Fitzy.

    The Cardinals are 5-1 when Boldin is out with an injury

  6. Kam88 says: Jan 8, 2010 9:42 PM

    Sucks that he’s hurting Boldin is a beast I hope he gets his money this offseason.
    That said this should enable the packers to swing more coverage to Fitzgerald’s side of the field. Breaston and Tramon Williams should be an interesting match up as well, as long as Jarett Bush isn’t matched up those two at any point in the game the Packers Defense should be able to do the job.

    pervy keep harpin on the big ben performance. i highly doubt warner will shake off cullen jenkins, or scramble around and extend plays with his legs.
    you are a total idiot. there i said it.

    “The Cardinals are 5-1 when Boldin is out with an injury”.
    Arizona is 4-1 in the last two years when Boldin hasn’t played. They beat CHI, BUF, DAL and SEA, and lost to a Brady-less Pats team. Not that impressive.

    Whisenhunt said it would take a lot for Anquan not to play. Anquan said his injury feels better every day and that the soreness is from working it out, so he will rest it for a day. If Anquan is a possession receiver/TE, how is he the NFL’s all-time leader in yards per game? Warner said: “A guy like Q, you don’t replace guys like that. You never want to go into a game (as a team) like this less than 100 percent and not with your top players.”
    LaConfora is a wimp who has never picked up a football for fear of being tackled. I’m sure if he or one of the Pack had a high ankle sprain they would be “virtually certain” to miss three games.

    jeremiah- Kudos for being a wah-man and calling me out. I know my truth scares you guys. Warner is better than ben any day when he gets rolling. 3 step drop,timed routes…no chasing Ben around. You guys are toast!

    Leave it to Pervy to yet again wring his hands over the prospect of his beloved Purple Myth having to face the Packers again. Ya, Pervy, the Packers’ secondary is “weak.” 30 INTs, including 9 by Woodson and 6 by Nick Collins….together they combine for 15 INTs, 4 more than Minnesota as a team and yet, only half of the Packers’ total INTs. Ya, that’s weak…how many times did you have to repeat the fourth grade?

  15. nerd says: Jan 8, 2010 10:33 PM

    Tramone Williams is our next CB after Woodson, and he can play. Jarrett Bush is currently our 3rd guy, due to injuries to Al Harris, Will Blackmon and Pat Lee. He can be beat. He has good coverage, but has struggled reacting to the ball.
    He’s getting better though. Improving with each game.

    You should know, spoken like someone who still has the scars fresh in your mind of the stomping your team got from Arizona earlier this year…

    Has this asshole ever not been injured? No wonder nobody really wants to trade for him… How many Pecker fans think that last week’s game was against the same team that they will see this week? Did anybody else notice that the starters were taken out in the 1st?

    Wow…as an ex boxer i can smell fear. Lot a fear being skunked out by you Packer fans. LMAO Deal with it boys, Warner shines in the spotlight. Rodgers will find out he is the new Favre of GreenBay. You know,the one that you say always chokes in the playoffs. The Muppet is your man though!

  20. erikleif says: Jan 8, 2010 10:50 PM

    502 yards? now thats weak

  21. Pervy_Harvin says: Jan 8, 2010 11:05 PM

    For each touchdown scored against the Cardinals, Sargento Cheese will donate $1,000 to the food pantry. Luckily for Sargento, they will only be donating 2g Sunday. Too bad that will not be enough for the potent Warner passing attack!

  22. jeremiah says: Jan 8, 2010 11:24 PM

    pervy, oh you know so little
    their is no way warner puts up 500 yards on the pack. if fact, i would bet NOBODY puts up 500 yards on ANYBODY the rest of the year. it just doesn’t happen regularly in the NFL, period. regardless of who is playing who.
    but if you watched the packers/steelers game you would know that big ben put up BIG chunks of his yardage while scrambling around and keeping drives alive. warner WILL NOT SCRAMBLE LIKE BIG BEN. warner is a pocket passer, and he will not have a pocket to stand in all day.
    continuously pointing out big bens big day as evidence for warner acomplishing something that he prolly hasn;t done since the greatest show on turf(if ever) just shines a huge spotlight on how big of an idiot you are. every thread, same post, every day, same garbage…..but it’s ok, i am sure peterson will get shut down and have 19 yards on 13 carries if the cards do beat the packers, because THAT happened earlier this year, right?

    Good stuff Pervy, good stuff. What a clown…..
    Damn Pervy I can’t sleep now, all I can picture is a big fat hairy drunk douche bag shadow boxing in his moms basement with a bunch of dented Budwieser cans laying all over cause you’re trying to crush them on your forehead.

    “Boldins physical play would have been too much for the weak Pack secondary”
    Last time I checked, the Packers were ranked 5th in pass defense and had two Pro Bowlers while your mediocre team ranked 19th in pass defense with no Pro Bowlers.
    It’s no wonder people hate you Pervy. You are nothing but a complete jackass who lacks football knowledge.

  28. packers4life says: Jan 9, 2010 4:26 AM

    “We beat that joke of a team twice. We would welcome them again so we can make them our doormat into the SuperBowl.”
    Oh wow. You beat us twice. Well guess what? No one gives a crap because none of that matters. Remember when the Packers swept the Vikings in 2004 (like always) but they beat us in the playoffs? Well that is going to happen again this year only it will be the other way around.
    After two posts from moron Viking fans, it should come to the conclusion that the entire internet should be taken away from Viking ‘fans’. They clearly are not intelligent enough to use it.

    I love seeing the jealously leak out of these idiot Viking ‘fans’ because their lousy team got their ass kicked by the Cardinals while we did just the opposite.

    Sure big Ben put up 500 passing on the Packers but many of those were against that stupid prevent defense with only three rushers who couldnt get to him and terrible pass defense,the Cards wont be seeing that terrible prevent defense at all but instead will see blitzes coming from everywhere,whats AZ going to do with no running game,pass all day long,that wont win this game,Warner will take a severe beating Sunday,as will the Cards,better get the backup qb ready early.Packers by 23.

    So when the packers lose in AZ I bet all packer fans, well whoever is left after jumping off the bandwagon, will cheer for any team playing the Vikings. Why?

  33. Pervy_Harvin says: Jan 9, 2010 10:24 AM

    Update from Arizona: Warner and Fitzy practiced all morning on sneaky timing routes that should give the Packers fits. Also in the game plan is a secret scheme intended just for Mr. Woodcock to render him basically useless on the field.A shadow on Mathews also to keep Warner clean.Darnell Docket also had a few choice words.” Remember our inspired D play vs. MN where we chased Favre all night? Expect that and more coming at Rodgers. It’s playoff time baby,and we know how to turn up the heat!”
    Stay tuned for further updates!

    Pervy – 10 year old ex boxer. He was also his forth grade class president. Won the balloon popping game at Billys 11th birthday party. Oh yeah, dont forget he is going to start his own football web sight for all friends.

    Who cares if the queens are afraid of us, they really shouldnt be, they have kicked our butts twice. All the pack can do is play who is put in front of them. Lets try to beat the cardinals first, then lets see what happens.

    Contra said: …all packer fans…will cheer for any team playing the Vikings. Why?
    Because the Minnesota Vikings winning the Super Bowl would be a sure sign of the apocalypse, that’s why! Some believe the ancient Mayans foresaw them winning in 2012, and that’s why they believed the world would end then. Packer fans – doing their best to preserve the future of our planet!

    Update from Arizona : “I know one thing,” Cardinals nose tackle Bryan Robinson said. “They’re a rhythm offense and we’re going to have to figure out some type of way to disrupt that rhythm.”
    Getting to Rodgers is the quickest way to create
    a diversion. Green Bay’s offensive line is healthier now and playing with more consistency, but the Packers still allowed the most sacks in the league this season (51).
    When Rodgers is harassed and surrounded, bad things usually happen to the Packers’ offense. That’s why the Cardinals are sure to have plenty of tricks up their sleeve in Sunday’s NFC wild-card showdown when they unleash a defense that was pure vanilla a week ago during a 33-7 loss.
    “Oh, you bet we will,” Robinson said, “and if you guys tune in on Sunday, we’ll show you some of those tricks.”

    Pervy has a homemade gas mask made of jared allens jock strap.
    He’ll be adding a hose to his arse so he can smell his own farts mingled with a hint a allen’s nut sack.
