Running back Beanie Wells indeed did more work Friday and said after practice, “I’m playing” as he gets through the swelling on his right knee brought on by an injection of lubricant earlier this week. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said barring any further swelling tomorrow — which is not expected — Wells should be fine to play Sunday. At this point, the only player I don’t think will be available is linebacker Clark Haggans (groin).
— Sometimes, it’s good to keep things light. Darnell Dockett has a speaker in his locker that he can attach to his iPod or iPhone or whatever he has. Today, as guys ate some lunch after practice, suddenly Denny Green’s voice popped up. First Dockett played a music remix of Denny saying over and over, “They were who we thought they were!” Then Dockett managed to find the entire rant on-line, playing it for the room while he chuckled.
— Interesting that there are only seven players left on the roster from that ’06 team that endured Denny’s meltdown (and, in fact, the Cards’ last trip to Minnesota): Dockett, Deuce Lutui, Gerald Hayes, Adrian Wilson, Gabe Watson, Matt Ware and Larry Fitzgerald.
