The Beanie Wells situation
For those of you who have been wondering what to do about Beanie Wells this weekend, we advise you to sit him and go with a different option.
Yes, the matchup vs. St. Louis looks very tasty indeed, but Wells was missed practice every day this week with a knee injury and is listed as “Questionable” on the injury report.
The official definition of “questionable” is: “50-50 chance player will not play.”
Now, while Wells could certainly see some action this weekend against a suspect St. Louis defense, you should expect to see the majority of the workload go to backup Tim Hightower. I highly doubt the Cardinals want to risk further injury to their 2009 first round pick by starting him in Week 1 against a bad Rams team.
Bottom line: Leave Wells on the bench.
