Anquan Boldin did some very light work on Friday, but his status for Sunday won’t be known probably until Sunday, both he and coach Ken Whisenhunt said. He’s feeling better and he did run full speed for the first time on the side. But he knows it’s better to miss this game than take a chance and miss four or five later.
“You don’t want to be stupid,” Boldin said about pushing it too hard.
“There’s improvement every day,” Boldin said, but he admitted he didn’t step it up Friday to do more. He said it “kills him” not to be able to do more in practice, “but you have to be smart about it.”
Rarely do players play when missing all week of practice — “Usually it’s hard to do that,” Whisenhunt said — and Boldin said he never has. But it’s been done. Whisenhunt used safety Adrian Wilson in the Buffalo game after missing all week last year and Wilson did make the big play when he knocked out Bills quarterback Trent Edwards. But Wilson was also very limited in that game, playing about six plays total.
