Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin tweaked his hamstring during practice on Friday, putting his status for yesterday’s game against the Jets into some doubt. In retrospect, he probably wishes that he did sit that one out. If he remembers that he had a hamstring injury, or is even aware that he did play yesterday.
That’s because he had his brain scrambled from a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jets’ safety Eric Smith (who also suffered a concussion on the play). It was a scary scene as Boldin was taped to a backboard and removed from the stadium. The good news is that the EAST VALLEY TRIBUNE reports that Boldin had been released from the hospital and had flown back to Arizona on a charted plane with Cardinals’ owner Bill Bidwell and his son Michael.
