TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona’s Anquan Boldin is doing everything he can to be healthy enough to play in the Cardinals’ wild-card game against the Green Bay Packers.

The three-time Pro Bowl receiver didn’t practice again on Friday because of a left high ankle sprain, a condition compounded by a sprained left knee. He was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt says Boldin’s participation will be a game-time decision.

Boldin says he’s had doctors at his house at night “poking and prodding” and has had acupuncture.

He was injured in Sunday’s 33-7 loss to the Packers. Although Whisenhunt pulled most of his starters early, he left Boldin in the game in the third quarter to help struggling backup quarterback Matt Leinart.
