The good news is that RB Beanie Wells (knee) was doing some work today — limited — but coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wells will be “really tested” Thursday and, assuming no setbacks, Wells will be back Friday. Wells himself said he was excited to get a chance to practice, so in this case, limited optimism.
It’s not as good for WR Early Doucet. Doucet was sent to a specialist today in fear he may have a sports hernia. Whisenhunt said if that’s true, he’ll have surgery and be out “a couple weeks” but the coach stressed Doucet will return. That leaves a lot of pressure on the young receivers Max Komar and Stephen Williams (and Andre Roberts, who will apparently end up active by default).
DE Kenny Iwebema (knee) and S Hamza Abdullah (hamstring) each sat out practice too.
