Beanie Wells says he just needed a little rest
Beanie Wells does not want you to worry.
The running back missed practice Thursday due to a hamstring problem, prompting fans to worry about his availability for Sunday’s big game in Seattle.
Thursday on the Big Red Rage, Wells said there is nothing to worry about.
“I just needed a little bit of rest,” he told host Paul Calvisi. “It’s nothing major at all.”
Wells is off to a great start this season, picking up 183 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team’s first two games, but has a history of injury troubles so the latest news was a bit concerning.
However, if he says he’s good to go then we should probably believe him, though there will probably be some worry every time he’s a little slow to get up after a run.
