The Cardinals are done with their practice for the week and for a third straight day, running back Beanie Wells did not practice with his bad knee. He will be officially listed as questionable for the game.
“Like I said, we do have three (other) backs we feel good about,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “So even if he is in a spot role, that is something I think Beanie could do. As far as starting, I’d have concerns about that but getting in for a couple carries here and there or just contributing, that’s not as big of a factor with where he has been.”
One of those other backs is Jason Wright, who was limited again with his sore toe. He too is listed as questionable. Everyone else on the injury report practiced fully and is listed as probable. Given the fact Beanie hasn’t practiced at all, I would be surprised if he plays Sunday. Very rarely does a guy miss all three practices and play — the only one to do it in the Whisenhunt era that I can recall was Adrian Wilson, who did so against the Bills back in 2008. He did make the play of the game, knocking out Bills QB Trent Edwards, but the bottom line was Wilson still only played six snaps that day.
And so, it’s time for the Rams.
