Once again, healthy does not mean ready to play.
Agreed...why rush him back if AJ/Patton/Lockette show "anything" opposite Boldin? Based on our own history, we just don't rush players back...at all! And we don't run many 3 (or 3+) WR formations. The mass majority will be 2 WR's with multiple back sets (esp. from the Q formation) and with McDonald, I expect to see even more two-TE sets.
In short, the WR opposite of Boldin isn't going to get much action and the slot (esp. if VD lines up out wide as well in various formations), may even had less than him. That said, given Roman's propensity to create space underneath, despite being on the field less, it's "possible" the slot WR ends up with more yards than the X WR.
