Arrington returns to practice for Arizona

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Running back J.J. Arrington has returned to practice for the Arizona Cardinals after sitting out all of last week with a sore right knee.

Arrington said earlier Wednesday he was going to "give it a try" in an attempt to be ready for Sunday's Super Bowl.

The former Cal standout became an increasingly important part of Arizona's offense as the season progressed. He was injured late in the first half of the Cardinals' 32-25 victory over Philadelphia in the NFC championship game.

Arrington, linebacker Travis LaBoy and Antonio Smith were limited in practice.

Wide receiver Anquan Boldin showed no ill effects of the strained left hamstring that kept him out of Arizona's 33-13 divisional playoff victory over Carolina.
