Well, coach Ken Whisenhunt said the Cards were pretty healthy Monday and, technically, he’s right — the Cards have just four guys on the injury report. Sure, it’s an important four, and two are receivers that are out, but …
Aside from WRs Steve Breaston (knee) and Early Doucet (hernia) out with surgeries, RB Beanie Wells (knee) and G Alan Faneca (back) each were limited Wednesday, although I suspect both will be able to play Sunday just fine. Making up for the missing Breaston and Doucet might be more difficult. I will have a story on the homepage later.
There was good news after practice, though, with LaRod Stephens-Howling meeting the guy for whom the Hyphen won a house. Stephens-Howling ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown, and Dave Johnson (pictured below with Hyphen and Johnson’s wife, Darci Mimz) got a free new home from Lennar Homes. Johnson clearly was grateful, saying of the Hyphen, “He’s got a place to stay forever.” Stephens-Howling, meanwhile, seems to have a little trouble at home. Asked if he had yet to get his own mother a house, LSH smiled. “Naw,” he said. “She’s kind of mad at me now.”
