With the Cardinals set to fly out to Atlanta soon, RB Beanie Wells will end up as a game-day decision again this week. He had some swelling on his knee after Thursday, coach Ken Whisenhunt said, and that left him fairly limited Friday. But the Cards will work him out Sunday and see where he is. “He really wants to play,” Whisenhunt said, although I would think the Cards would want to be careful with him.
The Fieldturf in the Georgia Dome does make a difference in the decision as well. It does seem to affect the players. “Yeah it does, I think, at least that’s the feedback I get from the players, whether it is real or imagined,” Whisenhunt said. “But you stand on it and you do feel it.”
As for WR Early Doucet, he had his hernia surgery Friday morning. Whisenhunt always knew a hernia was possible after Doucet first got hurt in preseason. “We were trying to hold it off as long as possible, hoping he could make it through the season,” Whisenhunt said. Then Doucet took that big shot in St. Louis after a catch. “It got to the point where lets get it done get it back and have 11 games with him,” Whisenhunt added.
