Todd Heap continues to play through injuries
Heap told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo he had difficulty running in the open field and turning on an extra gear he is used to, but he was able to do shorter movements like blocking at the line of scrimmage.
Running back Beanie Wells probably didn't notice anything wrong with Heap's play on the line, as he ran for a Cardinals single-game record 228 rushing yards.
"It was a lot of fun," Heap said. "We haven't had that much success running the ball this year."
Heap said the team set a goal for at least 125 yards in the ground game against the Rams.
Still, Heap has been known as a receiving tight end, but the injuries have held him back all season long.
"I'm not 100 percent yet, that's the most frustrating thing," Heap said. "I've seen guys go through it before and I've never been through one quite like this."
The hardest part for Heap has been being able to know what he can and cannot do.
"And that's the most frustrating part is you don't know how far to take it where you're not going to re-injure it, you're not going to set yourself back another three weeks."
