Beanie Wells questionable, may have "spot role"

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.)

    Please Beanies Nephew could go in there and run it against the Rams, Beanie just use your walker and run past their DB’s. Rams are garbage and maybe go up one spot from last like they did last year.

    I’m tempted to activate Hightower for Sunday although it would mean waiving Gerhart and ours is a dynasty league….

    Card’s going to lose. They do have Hightower who has outplayed Wells in every possible way this preseason.

    Rams are healthy, but are they any good?
    Cardinals win 31-2 (Anderson trips in the end zone).

    Us card fans are not worried…if you have seen what hightower does when he plays the rams, and you FF nuts out there may want to pick him up this week!

    Beanie Wells was already #2 on the depth chart anyway. So this isn’t earth shattering news.
    Rams 27-21
