Cardinals WR Boldin participates in full practice

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Anquan Boldin participated in a full practice Sunday with the Arizona Cardinals for the first time in more than two weeks.

Afterward Boldin said he expects to play in next weekend's pre-season game.

The two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver has been sidelined since July 26th, when he strained his right hamstring.

The sixth-year pro showed no ill effects in his return, running crisp routes and catching everything thrown his way.

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt says he's pleased with Boldin's progress and said the 6-foot-1, 217-pound receiver should be ready to play Saturday against Kansas City.

Boldin missed four games because of injuries last season but still tallied 71 receptions for 853 yards and a career-high nine touchdowns.
