Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells returned to practice on Wednesday and vowed to ready to play on Nov. 25 against the St. Louis Rams. The veteran running back said (via The Arizona Republic) that everyone would see "the vintage Beanie Wells" once he gets back on the field.
Wells has missed six weeks with a severe turf toe injury and was placed on the injured/designated-to-return list. He can't play in a game until the one against the Rams. LaRod Stephens-Howling has been the primary running back in place of Wells for the Cardinals, who have a bye in Week 10.
Fantasy Impact: Getting Wells back later this month may be too late for some fantasy owners but he's a name to consider for those still in the hunt for the playoffs. Wells hasn't been the most reliable fantasy player but he did finish with more than 1,000 yards rushing last season.
His return will hurt the value of Stephens-Howling, who has been a No. 3 fantasy running back/flex play.
