Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt says Boldin felt a problem with the hamstring late in practice Tuesday, but an MRI showed no serious injury.

The Cardinals also might be without wide receiver Steve Breaston, who has been sidelined with a bruised knee. If both miss the game, Jerheme Urban would move up to No. 2 receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald.

Arizona is expected to have the services of rookie running back Beanie Wells, who missed the first two preseason games with a sprained ankle.
