Beanie Wells Injury: Cardinals RB Leaves With Knee Injury, Returns To Top 200 Yards

Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells was in the midst of a career day. With about ten minutes left in the fourth quarter, St. Louis Rams linebacker Brady Poppinga brought Wells down behind the line of scrimmage. More than tackle him, he stripped the ball, forcing a fumble and seriously injured Wells in the process. Wells left the game, and his status for return is unknown.

The Rams recovered the ball, and scored a touchdown to tie the game on the ensuing possession. When the Cardinals offense returned to the field, Wells finally returned after a few plays. On his first play back in the game, Wells broke away for a 53-yard run that was nearly a touchdown. That run put Wells over 200 rushing yards for the day. He has 207 yards on 22 carries, including that 53-yard run and a 71-yard run earlier in the game. If the Cardinals win this game, many will look at Wells’ 53-yard scamper as a turning point.

Here's the video of Well's 53-yard run.
