Wells rushed 17 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams. It was Wells' first game back from injured reserve after suffering a toe injury early in the season. Larod Stephens-Howling, who is Wells' primary backup, received only one carry on the afternoon. William Powell also got three carries.
