Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin took one of the nastiest hits of the season -- a violent helmet-to-helmet collision at the end of a loss to the Jets -- less than two weeks ago.

Still, his coach said there's a chance Boldin, who was at practice on Thursday, could play against the Cowboys on Sunday.

"I've learned that you can't rule 'Q' out of anything," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "That's been my experience with him.

"We'll see how he feels tomorrow and Saturday. Obviously he's recovering quickly."

Boldin had surgery to repair a sinus fracture, the result of the hit from New York Jets safety Eric Smith. Smith was fined $50,000 and suspended for one game for the helmet-to-helmet hit.
