Wide receiver Steve Breaston (knee) was back at practice on a limited basis today, which is a good sign as the Cards move toward the Jacksonville game. Of course, Breaston practiced all last week and didn’t play, so he’s probably a guy who will — no matter what — be someone that has to see game day how his injury responds. At least Early Doucet was back practicing full with his rib injury, so the Cards will have that piece. WR Anquan Boldin continues to be limited, but he’ll probably stay that way until he feels fully healed. He knows he’s not there yet.
More troubling is the fact LB Chike Okeafor sat again with a bad shoulder. Whisenhunt said he anticipated Okeafor doing some things tomorrow, so that could change the complexion, but if Okeafor can’t go tomorrow, it’ll be rough. Bertrand Berry is the starter if Okeafor can’t go.
Speaking of the Jacksonville game, Whisenhunt said the Cardinals have invested in a unit that allows players to attach small, extremely light pieces to their shoulder pads that — during a game — they can hook up to a machine so cool air will blow on the player’s body. The idea is to battle the humidity of Jacksonville. The Jaguars already have a system, and the Cards made sure they will have one too.
