Default Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin moving his extremities after scary collision



Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin carted off field
44 minutes ago

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Arizona wide receiver Anquan Boldin was carted off the field after a scary helmet-to-helmet collision in the end zone with 27 seconds remaining in the Cardinals' 56-35 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Boldin was alert and was moving his extremities. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York for what Whisenhunt said were precautionary reasons.

Boldin tried to catch a pass from Kurt Warner, but was hit in the back and then took a shot to his helmet from Eric Smith. Both Boldin and Smith fell to the turf, and Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald immediately waved to the sideline for help.
Trainers ran out to check on Boldin, and soon the entire Cardinals team surrounded their teammate as the Giants Stadium crowd fell silent. Smith, also injured on the play, was able to get up after a few moments.

After being working on for several minutes, Boldin was immobilized and placed on a stretcher before he was carted off the field.

Boldin was talking to his teammates coming off the field and going into the locker room.

"He asked to get up and the doctors won't let him," Whisenhunt said.

Warner, who threw for 472 yards but had five turnovers in the game, said he went to Boldin's side and told him he loved him.

"It's a scary, scary part of the business," Warner said. "No matter how badly you play, you want to come out healthy."

Boldin has movement in all extremities
Posted: News | NFL.com Staff | Tags: Anquan Boldin, Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets

Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin was taken off the field on a stretcher after a scary collision, but was moving all his extremities on the field.

Boldin was talking to his teammates coming off the field and going into the locker room. He was being taken to a hospital for precautionary reasons.

“He’s alert,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “He’s talking and moving all his extremities. He asked to get up and the doctors won’t let him.”

Late in the fourth quarter, Boldin went airborne attempting to catch a touchdown pass, but was hit from behind from Jets FS Kerry Rhodes, causing his head to snap forward, and then — almost simultaneously — was hit in the front by SS Eric Smith and Boldin’s head snapped backwards.

Both Boldin and Smith were on the ground for a while. Smith eventually got up, but Boldin stayed down not moving, as both teams gathered in a circle close by. Boldin eventually had his head immobilized, was put on a stretcher and taken off the field.

I always hate seeing incidents like that. It was nice to see Kurt Warner leading the prayer huddle. My prayers go out to Boldlin for a speedy recovery.

I didn't even realize this happened.

I think I saw someone being carted off in a stabilizer in the Den/KC game, too.

Glad he's showing promising signs.

The hit was helmet to helmet, but it was the first hit from behind that redirected Boldin downward toward Smith. I don't see how it could have been avoided, given the way that the play unfolded. I'm glad he's moving and hope he's OK.

I really dont think the hit was meant to be helmet to helmet. The way the play played out he was kind of coming down and the last guy to hit him hit him with his helmet.. but I dont think it was on purpose.

Just remember mr. Boldin in your prayers..
