The Cardinals had a banged-up crew out for Wednesday’s practice. Running back Beanie Wells sat because of ongoing swelling issues. Linebackers Clark Haggans (groin) and Paris Lenon (ankle) also sat out, and it wasn’t a great day for the defense, since linebackers Joey Porter (knee) and Will Davis (knee), defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (shoulder) and safety Kerry Rhodes (hand) were also limited.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt attributed most of it to an overtime game on turf, accounting for some extra plays and less rest. I’m not sure about Lenon, but I’d expect the limited guys to be OK this week.
On Wells, we will have to see. Whisenhunt said he hoped Wells could practice more as the week goes on, and Beanie sounded somewhat optimistic on that too. But I’m probably done trying to predict on the running back. This is still the reaction to the injection — I don’t think it’s more than that — of last week.
