Running back Beanie Wells was limited in practice Wednesday after suffered some swelling on the right knee within which he had had his meniscus surgically repaired. We will know more tomorrow on whether it impacts Wells’ status for Sunday but Whisenhunt said “I don’t anticipate it being an issue.” His back, which he hurt against the Bucs, is not a problem.
Linebacker Clark Haggans (groin) also sat out. Haggans will be day-to-day again, but I wouldn’t be shocked if he has to miss another game.
— As for coach Ken Whisenhunt’s decision to start Derek Anderson, a lot has to do with playing on the road this week in Minnesota (and, looking forward, at Kansas City in a couple weeks). Whisenhunt said he hasn’t soured on Max Hall. And when he was asked about possibly making another in-game change, Whisenhunt didn’t rule it out.
“We’re going to go into each game doing what we think gives us the best chance to win,” Whisenhunt said. “I’m not going to have a quick hook, if that’s what you are asking me. I told the quarterbacks I don’t think you can play the game worrying about that. But we will definitely do what we think gives us the best chance to win.”
— Also limited in practice were DL Alan Branch (back), WR Steve Breaston (knee), LB Will Davis (knee), WR Early Doucet (groin) and DE Kenny Iwebema (knee).
— The Cardinals’ players are holding an NFLPA meeting this after noon to vote on player reps and on decertification. Teams across the league are doing such voting — voting to decertify — in preparation of potential legal strategies in the event of a lockout.
