Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin hopes to play against the Giants on Sunday despite being told initially that his ankle injury could sideline him for several weeks.

"They were originally telling me 3-4 weeks with a high ankle sprain and I've seen guys be out about that long with it," Boldin told Mike Jurecki of XTRA910 radio in Phoenix, "but I've got a lot of people praying for me, so hopefully I get back out there Sunday."

Listen to the interview here.

"I'm feeling real good right now," Boldin said.

His comments suggest he did suffer a high sprain, which is more serious than a lateral one.
