Cardinals say rookie RB Wells has right ankle sprain

The Cardinals held their breath when first-round draft pick Chris “Beanie” Wells was injured during his first practice Saturday. Apparently, now they can exhale.

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt says the rookie running back should be OK.

“His MRI revealed a right ankle sprain, but at this point, it doesn’t appear serious, which is obviously good news,” Whisenhunt said of Wells in a statement released by the team. “In terms of missing time, it’s tough to say now, but we should have a better idea in the coming days.”

Wells, who rolled his left leg during a collision with a teammate, had a deep injury history during his time at Ohio State. He had a left ankle sprain, a right wrist sprain and a thumb fracture in 2007, and he suffered a right foot sprain, turf toe, a hamstring strain and a concussion last season. Still, Wells missed just three games.
