Beanie Wells Status Update: Cardinals' RB 'Likely To Play'

Arizona Cardinals starting running back Beanie Wells is likely to play with a knee injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, but how much action he gets remains to be seen.

The Cardinals are facing the Baltimore Ravens this week, who are allowing the third-fewest rushing yards in the league, so even if Wells were at full strength, this would be a tough matchup. The guy who will get the carries Wells can't handle will likely be speedster LaRod Stephens-Howling. In other weeks, he'd be a starting option, but against the Ravens, you should really consider other options.

If Wells is a full go, he might get a touchdown. He's been, shockingly, a very reliable fantasy performer when healthy, but his recent streak of game-time decision injuries has been frustrating for owners and fantasy writers alike. We feel your pain.
