Arizona wide receiver Anquan Boldin's injured hamstring is improving, coach Ken Whisenhunt said after practice.
“He looked better," Whisenhunt said. "The biggest thing with Anquan is just seeing how he can continue doing that on a day-to-day basis. It looks to me like it is improving and he is doing better. Hopefully that will be the case tomorrow. That will be another critical day for us.”
Whisenhunt also again pushed the premise of the Cardinals as underdogs who are making their first NFC Championship Game appearance.
“I think that one of the benefits of not having been here before is that we are just working," he said. "Everybody understands the magnitude of this game as far as it being one game away from going to the Super Bowl. We have kind of been a team that nobody gave a chance to. We have just been working and getting ready for our first two games, and that has carried over to this game, so hopefully that will help us.”
The Cardinals had all their players on the field for practice, at least in a limited fashion. Boldin, defensive end Travis LaBoy (ankle) and tight end Ben Patrick were listed as limited.
