Cardinals-Saints Preview

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- With their playoff hopes in the balance, the Arizona Cardinals kept hobbled wide receiver Anquan Boldin active for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Boldin sat out Arizona's previous game, a loss to Seattle, with a dislocated toe and was limited in practice throughout the past week.

The Saints deactivated safety Josh Bullocks for the second straight game.

Bullocks practiced this week after missing a Monday night victory at Atlanta with a strained quadriceps. But he had a setback late in the week.

Kevin Kaesviharn started at free safety in Bullocks' place.

Also out, as expected, was running back Reggie Bush, missing his second consecutive game with a partially torn left knee ligament.

Bush said he continues to hold out hope of coming back this season, but likely needs at least a month to rehabilitate his posterior cruciate ligament injury, meaning he probably would not return unless the Saints (6-7) rallied to earn an NFC playoff berth.
