Cardinals stars put in extra practice time

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Quarterback Kurt Warner and star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald put in extra time Wednesday at the Arizona Cardinals pre-Super Bowl practice in Tampa, Fla.

The fast-paced session lasted two hours, 15 minutes, with all of Arizona's injured players, including linebacker Travis LaBoy and defensive end Antonio Smith, practicing on a limited basis.

"A lot of those guys have been doing that all year and it's helped us, too," Arizona Coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "It was much better than our normal Wednesday practices because we installed much of our offense and defense last week in Arizona."

Whisenhunt said wide receiver Anquan Boldin participated fully and showed no effects of a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the NFC divisional playoff game against Carolina.

"We took a little easier on him early last week just to be safe."

The Cardinals head into Super Bowl XLIII Sunday as seven-point underdogs against the five-time NFL champion Pittsburgh Steelers.
