Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin, last season's offensive rookie of the year, underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday after tests found torn cartilage in his right knee.

Coach Dennis Green called the injury "a slight tear" and said Boldin should be able to return within weeks, suggesting he would be ready for the regular-season opener at St. Louis on Sept. 12. The Cardinals start their exhibition schedule Saturday at Minnesota.

"Very relieved," Green said. "I think Anquan is one of the top receivers in the game. He was a Pro Bowl player last year and a great competitor. Just not having him out here yesterday and today has made a difference in our football team, but we'll be happy when he gets back and we don't anticipate that being very far away."

Another wide receiver, Bryant Johnson, had a boot removed that he wore for more than a month to protect the stress fracture in his right foot. Last year's first-round draft pick, Johnson planned to return soon.
"As big a competitor as Anquan is, it's frustrating to him," quarterback Josh McCown said. "But he's ready to figure out what he needs to do to get back right and get going, so we'll be fine."

Boldin missed his junior year at Florida State because of reconstructive surgery on a tendon in his left knee.

This time, his knee was sore Monday and he sat out the always intense morning practice. On Tuesday, he was warming up for practice when his knee locked up. Boldin, whose 101 catches last year set an NFL rookie record, was carted from the field.

Grrr.... Had my draft the 9th and he was one of my recievers
I tried to tell the rest of the league it was too early for a fantasy draft! Oh well, it's not a killer at least. Too bad for him though, hope he recovers fully soon.

Don't worry, you'll get him back before the end of the season.
