WR Boldin, DT Dockett sit out Cardinals' practice with injuries

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin and defensive tackle Darnell Dockett sat out practice Wednesday but say they expect to play in Sunday's game at Chicago.

Boldin's sprained right ankle took a shot in last Sunday's 34-21 loss to the Carolina Panthers. The three-time Pro Bowler first injured the ankle against the Houston Texans on Oct. 11. He didn't practice last week until Friday and said he expected the same thing this week.

Dockett has been bothered by a sore ankle and neck. Linebacker Gerald Hayes also didn't practice Wednesday because of back spasms.

Boldin says that he'll never be 100 percent healthy this season, but as long as he can move around and run, he's going to play. Dockett says the only way he would sit out the game is if he can't walk.
