Boldin has strained hamstring, status uncertain

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona wide receiver Anquan Boldin has a strained left hamstring and his status is uncertain for Saturday night's NFC divisional playoff game at Carolina.

Boldin was injured on a 71-yard touchdown pass from Kurt Warner in the second quarter of Arizona's 30-24 wild-card playoff victory over the Atlanta Falcons last Saturday.

He returned to play one more series, then limped off the field for good.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt says the team will just have to wait and see how it goes.

Boldin was voted to his third Pro Bowl this season despite missing four games with injuries.

Steve Breaston would move up to starting wide receiver along with Larry Fitzgerald if Boldin can't play. Jerheme Urban probably would be the No. 3 receiver, with rookie Early Doucet possibly seeing some playing time.

Whisenhunt says he thought the hamstring injury was related to Boldin's inability to practice at full speed for the final two weeks of the regular season because of a shoulder injury.
