Coach Ken Whisenhunt said RB Beanie Wells was indeed able to do more work on his sore knee Friday, and with both he and TE Todd Heap (hamstring) “progressing,” they will be part of the group of players that will be game-day decisions for the Cardinals. Included in that will be LB Joey Porter, who is dealing with a chronic knee issue. They are among six players — WR Early Doucet (quadricep), WR DeMarco Sampson (hamstring) and TE Jim Dray (pectoral) as well — who are officially questionable for Sunday’s game in Baltimore.
S Kerry Rhodes (foot) is obviously out. CB Michael Adams (hand) is probable.
The hope is that Heap and Beanie get better, but Porter’s problem is something that isn’t going away. “It’s something it depends how he responds week-to-week,” Whisenhunt said of Porter. “We’ve been giving him time off at practice. It depends on whether he takes a shot in the game or what happens gamedays. It’s indicative of a lot of older players around the league.”
