Coach Ken Whisenhunt is hoping Anquan Boldin’s ankle injury, now that he had a game off, will be all but healed now. But as for Boldin’s postgame remarks about his anger from not playing, well, Whisenhunt didn’t mind.
“You know what, that doesn’t concern me at all,” Whisenhunt said. “In fact, that’s kind of what you like to see, because he wants to play. I think we all know how tough and competitive Anquan is, and the fact he was upset he didn’t play is what you would expect. I certainly have no issues with that whatsoever.”
Players were given a “Victory Monday” and the day off, although many still are in lifting weights and having injuries treated, and Boldin was down working out as always this morning. For the future, events like this may not make things worse, but it does put into context Boldin’s thought process. Still, I don’t expect to be a problem going forward. Whisenhunt doesn’t see it as one, and when the team is winning, it’s tough for these distractions to gain any real traction.
P.S. Whisenhunt said the Cards were relatively healthy after the game, although he noted TE Ben Patrick did tweak his knee. Patrick went back into the game after that happened.
