Beanie Wells to be limited in practice

A quick update on Arizona RB Beanie Wells, who hurt his ribs Monday after taking a well-placed hit from Cardinals S Hamza Abdullah. Though there were no fractures, Wells is experiencing swelling and he’s likely to be limited in practice today.

At this point, it’s unclear whether Wells will play in the preseason opener Saturday against the Texans.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt explained what happened, and the Arizona Republic was taking notes:

Whisenhunt had no problem with Wells being hit on the play, he said.

"I don't blame Hamza because earlier in practice Beanie had come through and lowered his shoulder and knocked the (inappropriate term) out of a DB," Whisenhunt said. "And Hamza obviously wasn't going to let that happen to himself. It was a good football play; there was nothing cheap or unnecessary about it."

Wells was carrying the ball through the hole and was stepping over another player. "He was a little bit high," Whisenhunt said. "He could have dropped his shoulder and there would have been a collision but that (bruised ribs) wouldn't have happened. But that's part of practice and you have to understand that when you're in pads, that's what can happen."


Tim Hightower remains the starter at RB, but Wells was looking to take more carries this year after a decent, but not great rookie season. LaRod Stephens-Howling and Jason Wright also will take more reps if Wells is out for a while.
