Stop me if you have heard this one before — RB Beanie Wells expects to play on Sunday. Of course he does. Even coach Ken Whisenhunt is getting tired of repeating the same refrain over the past couple of weeks.
So it appears we are getting closer. Maybe. Darren Urban wrote on the team’s official site that Wells was not even close to playing last week. But Wells went through a rigorous workout on Wednesday, and the team will wait to see how his knee responds.
RB Tim Hightower is still a great start against the Raiders this week, no matter what Wells does because the Cardinals will be very guarded with the young runner when he returns.
