Cardinals Not Optimistic For Boldin, Campbell Undergoes Surgery

Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals are not optimistic that Boldin will play this Sunday against the Packers in the wild card round of the playoffs. Boldin injured his ankle in the Cardinals 33-7 loss this past weekend. Anquan originally stated that he was ok, and that he would play this week. We know that he's certainly capable of playing through injury, but he's nowhere near as effective as when he's at 100%. From Schefter:

Cardinals not optimistic Anquan Boldin will play Sunday - ankle injury. But if anyone has a chance, it's Boldin. He's as tough as they come.

Calais Campbell suffered a fractured thumb in the loss and was a bit more questionable on the injury report. He underwent surgery Monday as Darren Urban reports.

Defensive end Calais Campbell had a surgical procedure done on his fractured left thumb, KTVK (Ch. 3) reported, and had video of Campbell in a sling and cast. Campbell told Ch. 3’s Brad Cesmat he still had a chance to play this week but nothing is certain; coach Ken Whisenhunt said earlier in the day he hoped Campbell could play with a cast.

If neither is able to go, it was be a huge blow to the offense and defense and the Cardinals would be considerably short-handed on Sunday.
