Cardinals RB Beanie Wells, who’s been out with a knee injury, is listed as questionable on the official NFL injury list. According to the team’s official website, Wells will be a gametime decision, but it doesn't sound real promising,
Writes Darren Urban: “Like the last two weeks, he has done so little, it’s hard to believe he would be much help even if he would be able to play. Now that Jason Wright had all week to practice, however – added in with Tim Hightower and LaRod Stephens-Howling – I would think the Cards can deal with it if Beanie is a no-or-little-go.”
I watched much of last week’s Cardinals-Rams game, and Stephens-Howling (seven carries, 49 yards plus a 27.3 kickoff return average) looked pretty impressive to me. Hightower was OK, minus the two fumbles he lost, though coach Ken Whisenhunt said he wasn’t in danger of losing playing time (of course Whisenhunt also thought Wells would be OK by Game 2, and that doesn’t look like it’ll happen).
And while we're talking about Hightower, here's an interesting story from the Arizona Republic regarding his thoughts on his fumbles.
Said Hightower: "My job is to hold on (to) that football. My job is to make plays. My job is to run the football and be successful at it ... You can try to analyze it, try to break it down, slow it down, rewind it, pause it and do all that stuff. But at the end of the day you've got to find a way to get it done."
