It is the first Friday, which means the first official injury report of the season is here, and with it all the glorious designations like doubtful, questionable, and probable that even NFL teams can’t seem to keep straight.
(One team explained in their email that probable means there is a 75% chance a player will suit up. Even though that’s not true; it means “virtual certainty” to play.)
In Arizona, we were curious to see what tag running back Beanie Wells was slapped with. ESPN’s Adam Schefter casted doubt on Wells’ status early Friday, and Ken Whisenhunt declared him “questionable” after Wells missed his third straight practice.
Whiz isn’t givng up though: “Even if he is in a spot role, that is something I think Beanie could
do. As far as starting, I’d have concerns about that but getting in for
a couple carries here and there or just contributing, that’s not as big
of a factor with where he has been.”
Tim Hightower should get the start for the Cardinals, who also listed running back Jason Wright as questionable with a toe injury.
The Rams are healthy, with only one probable player. (Safety James Butler.)
