 TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -Anquan Boldin increased his workload in practice on Thursday, but Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt remained uncertain whether his standout wide receiver would play Sunday at Carolina.
``He's doing a lot in practice, which is good to see,'' Whisenhunt said. ``I think really it's about where he is tomorrow after practice and when we travel to Carolina how he feels.''
The team planned a light workout Friday before their cross-country flight later in the day.
Boldin has been sidelined for three weeks with a fractured sinus and other facial injuries following a fierce hit by the New York Jets' Eric Smith on Sept. 28. He underwent surgery to repair the damage and began practicing this week.
Whisenhunt said the strong play of Steve Breaston in Boldin's absence makes it easier for coaches to keep Boldin's playing time down.
he won't come out.''
Tight ends Leonard Pope (ankle) and Ben Patrick (knee) did not practice. That leaves Jerame Tuman the only healthy tight end on Arizona's roster. The Cardinals have another, Alex Shor, on the practice squad.
``We've gone into most games with just two tight ends on the roster anyway,'' Whisenhunt said, ``so I think we've got a plan that we can carry out if we need to. We've been running a lot of three- and four-wide receiver sets anyway, so it's not really a huge concern.''
Starting defensive end Travis LaBoy missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a groin strain.
