Receiver Anquan Boldin (ankle, knee) and inside linebacker Gerald Hayes (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday, but coach Ken Whisenhunt is hopeful both starters will be able to take part in Thursday's workout.
With the divisional playoff game against the Saints on Saturday, tomorrow's practice is the last major one of the week. If Boldin and Hayes are to play major roles in that game, I'm guessing coaches would like to see them in practice on Thursday.
Monty Beisel is the backup to Hayes, and Steve Breaston is Boldin's replacement.
