Not too many news nuggets came out of Ken Whisenhunt’s presser today, which is probably a good thing. Other than running back Beanie Wells, whom Whiz said was “sore” and had a “little swelling” with his knee, the Cards came out fairly unscathed. It’ll be wait and see how much Wells can do at practice Wednesday, but there didn’t sound like any concern he would be ready for Dallas.
“When he got his knee bent back, it looked horrible,” Whisenhunt said. “I’m sure at that point most of us thought that was it and he was done, because he was already fighting the knee. But to his credit, he fought it and came back in and had some big runs. Kudos to Beanie. When you talk about trying to get players to understand the mentality of what it takes, it’s great to see a young guy like Beanie make that progress.”
As for quarterback Kevin Kolb, it sure sounds like he will finally be able to make his return this game.
“I think we are certainly a lot more optimistic about him being able to go this week,” Whisenhunt said. “It will depend on where he is Wednesday, but he made enough progress last week that you feel good about him being able to do it.”
