Thursday was the first day running back Beanie Wells really
“opened it up” and tested his hamstring since injuring it at
the end of the game two weeks ago, and Arizona coach Ken
Whisenhunt is pleased with the running back’s progress.
“Beanie’s better,” he said. “I expect Beanie to participate
a lot more in practice tomorrow and get him some actual
reps. Provided it goes well, we’re optimistic that he’ll
have a chance to play Sunday.”
When Beanie opened it up Thursday he had no setbacks and
doesn’t seem to be worried about the injury getting into his
head on Sunday.
“Once the game comes on and it’s time, it’s a different
mindset you don’t think about anything and I think it will
probably help for the better, once the game has started your
adrenaline is going so much, pumping and flowing, you don’t
think about anything,” he said.
Beanie also said it’s his left hamstring that’s bothering
him and thinks it happened at the end of the game against
the Redskins. He also said this is the first hamstring
injury of his career and he’s ready to go for Sunday.
