Beanie Wells Status Update: Wells Should Play In A Limited Role

Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells has been dealing with a knee injury that has limited him all week in practice. He's officially listed as questionable on the injury report, but most expect him to be active on game day. If he's active, it's possible Wells will be used primarily for short yardage and goal line work. So far on the season, Wells is averaging 4.6 yards per carry with 6 touchdowns.

If Wells doesn't go, expect Alfonso Smith the get the majority of the work running the football. Ken Whisenhunt said it will be "by committee" running the ball if Wells doesn't play, but Smith should get the carries on first and second down with LaRod Stephens-Howling getting the looks on third downs.
