Beanie Wells not shedding much light on knee issue

The Arizona Cardinals are not providing much in the way of answers when it comes to Beanie Wells and his return from what the running back says was arthroscopic knee surgery.

Right now, it looks like Wells will not be doing much other than rehabilitation during the offseason workouts. The hope is the back, who played through knee issues last season, is ready to roll for training camp.

"It's coming along pretty good," Wells said, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. "No setbacks at all, I'm feeling confident about being ready when the time is right.

"I knew early on (last) season that at the end of the year this is the route we were going to have to take."

According to Somers, Wells said it was “just a scope, cleaned things up.” When pressed for more information, the big back said it was more than work on the meniscus, “it was a little more complicated.”

Next, the reporter asked Wells if he had microfracture surgery, which can be difficult to return from in quick order. Wells smiled at Somers as he walked to the locker room.
