Oh, the report day always turns into a whirlwind after hours of waiting. I tweeted this earlier (again, follow me on @cardschatter for the most immediate updates as I float around the NAU campus for camp), but RB Beanie Wells and TE Jeff King were placed on the active physically unable to perform list as camp opens.
What does this mean? Nothing urgent. To start with, players can come off at any time — players on the PUP list to start the regular season must miss the first six games, but up until then, it is flexible. In both players’ cases, coach Ken Whisenhunt said he doesn’t anticipate either being down long. It was a procedural thing, Whisenhunt said, and the players will be evaluated tomorrow and as the time goes on to see where they are.
Whisenhunt said he expected both would be on PUP, and reiterated Wells has made a lot of progress coming back from knee surgery. Of course, nothing is proven until Wells actually starts practicing, but the Cards were always going to bring Wells along slowly in the preseason, and if Wells’ current predicament is bothering Whisenhunt, he certainly doesn’t show it. The coach still sounds confident in Wells when it will mean something.
