Beanie Wells Injury Update: Cardinals RB Battles Through Stinger, Knee Issues

Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells has put together a solid 2011 campaign, but he has had to deal with a variety of ailments that have slowed his fantasy production. He found himself banged up once against Sunday afternoon against the St. Louis Rams. Wells has been dealing with a season-long knee issue and added a stinger to his medical report in the third quarter of the Cardinals 19-13 overtime victory.

Wells finished the game with 20 rushing yards on ten carries and another 13 receiving yards. He suffered the stinger in the third quarter, but it is the knee issue that is causing the real problems. He had surgery on the knee a year ago and is still struggling with it. He has acknowledged it will likely bother him all season long, so fantasy owners will have to live with it the rest of the season.

The Cardinals schedule the rest of the way provides a mix of good and bad matchups. They head east to Philadelphia where the Eagles have struggled against the run. They follow that up with a road trip to San Francisco to face one of the top rushing defenses in the league. They wrap up the three-game road trip at St. Louis. Wells should stay in your lineup for now, but he will be worth monitoring each week.

Larry Fitzgerald Fantasy Stats: Cardinals Started John Skelton, But Fitzgerald Still Scored

Larry Fitzgerald was dealing with John Skelton as his quarterback on Sunday as regular starter Kevin Kolb was out due to injury, but the Arizona Cardinals running back was able to deliver regardless in an overtime win over the St. Louis Rams. Fitzgerald scored his team's only offensive touchdown, despite catching just four passes for 43 yards, as he continues to be a a solidly unspectacular option in fantasy football.

Fitzgerald had 603 receiving yard on the season with 2 receiving touchdowns entering Week 9. Fitzgerald was averaging 86 yards receiving per game. Fitzgerald's receiving yards per game were up nearly 15 yards per game from last season.

Fitzgerald was ranked as the 9th ranked wide receiver according to Yahoo! heading into his match up with the St. Louis Rams who rank 15th against the pass, giving up 227 passing yards per game.

NFL Scores Week 9, Rams Vs. Cardinals: Patrick Peterson Lifts Arizona In Overtime, 19-13

After Arizona sent its game with St. Louis to overtime, Patrick Peterson made one of the best bad decisions in NFL history on a game-winning return.


VIDEO: Patrick Peterson Scores Overtime Game-Winning 99-Yard Punt Return Touchdown

No, that headline is not a typo. In overtime of the NFC West matchup between the St. Louis Rams and the Arizona Cardinals, rookie cornerback Patrick Peterson fielded a punt on the one yard line. He then proceeded to take that punt 99 yards to the house for the Cardinals, ending the sudden death game with a great return for a touchdown. I'm not sure if Ken Wisenhunt is going to be elated or absolutely furious with his rookie star. Who fields a punt on the one yard line? Kids, don't try this at home.


Because the San Fransisco 49ers keep winning games, this probably isn't terribly relevant, but Arizona have another win! Winning is good!

VIDEO: Rams Safeties Add To Lead

The St. Louis Rams offense has been able to move the ball today against the Arizona Cardinals. Unfortunately, they have not been able to put the ball into the end zone. The Rams' defense on the other hand, is having no problem finding the end zone. The defensive line has sacked Cardinals quarterback John Skelton TWICE in the end zone for two safeties in the third quarter, giving the Rams a 13-6 lead in the third quarter. 

Check out the video of each safety. First, here's James Hall's:

And here is C.J. Ah You's safety just a few minutes later:

Unfortunately for Ah You, the officials took away the sack, ruling it intentional grounding on Skelton. The Rams still get the safety, but nothing else in the stat sheet.

Through three quarters of play, neither team has actually scored a touchdown, despite combining for 415 yards of offense. A combine 11 penalties isn't helping the speed of a game between two team battling their way out of the NFC West cellar. 


VIDEO: Sam Bradford Picked Off On Flea-Flicker

One of these days, quarterbacks are going to learn that just because the coach calls a trick play, they don't have to throw it deep. Sam Bradford once again showed us why damning the torpedoes is not such a hot idea. The St. Louis Rams quarterback basically threw a ball up for grabs on a flea-flicker and it was, predictably, intercepted.

The annoying part of it was Bradford was under zero pressure and his man wasn't open. In fact, he didn't even have total single coverage, as another defensive back was still underneath the throw. Live and learn maybe.


Sam Bradford Injury: Rams Likely To Start Bradford Against Arizona

The St. Louis Rams are all but officially ready to start quarterback Sam Bradford today. According to a tweet from the team moments ago, Bradford looks like he will be the man for the Rams against the Cardinals.

Signs pointing to QB Sam Bradford making the start today. Will have more when official decision is made.

Bradford has missed the Rams’ last two games because of a high ankle sprain suffered in a loss to Green Bay in week 6.

While Bradford may be on the field for the Rams, the Cardinals will likely be without their starter, Kevin Kolb. He is not expected to play because of a turf toe injury.


Sam Bradford Injury Update: Rams QB Is A Game-Time Decision

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is still dealing with an ankle injury and is officially listed as questionable on the Rams injury report. Bradford will be the dreaded game-time decision on Sunday, but most do not expect Bradford to be able to play against the Arizona Cardinals. Bradford has missed the past two games. If Bradford is on your roster, it's best to leave him on your bench regardless, as the Rams offense has been dreadful.

Filling in for Bradford once again will likely be A.J. Feeley, who led the Rams to their first victory of the season over the New Orleans Saints. He threw for 175 yards and connected with Brandon Lloyd for a touchdown. If you need an emergency start at quarterback, Feeley may get you some points going up against a bad Cardinals secondary.
