The Arizona Cardinals held their final practice before their preseason finale against the Denver Broncos and as expected they ruled Anquan Boldin, Brian St. Pierre and Early Doucet out of action. Boldin is still hampered by a gimpy hamstring and St. Pierre's back is still giving him problems. Doucet's ribs will likely keep him out for at least a couple of weeks. LaRod Stephens-Howling is doubtful for Thursday's game and is still experiencing from symptoms from his concussion, althouh he has passed the neurological tests in order to return to action. Matt Leinart is still experiencing some shoulder soreness but he is expected to play through the pain, although Tyler Palko is expected to see quite a bit of action.
Ken Whisenhunt still hasn't decided exactly how much his starters will play but they will at least take the field. It's doubtful that Palko will be able to jump St. Pierre on the depth chart but it will be interesting to him in his first action since the preseason opener. With Boldin and Doucet out and Breaston most likely limited, it'll be another chance for Lance Long and Orea Jones to showcase themselves.
