Even though Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells is just coming off injured reserve, he believes it won’t take a long time before he’ll be able to carry the full load. Cardinals RB Beanie Wells doesn’t believe it will take long before he can resume a full workload after missing seven games with a turf-toe injury and a sore knee. “Not at all,” Wells said. “I think I’m capable of a full workload. The thing is, I always look at it like I’ve been playing football since I was six years old and that’s one thing I don’t forget how to do. I just take it for what it is. I’ve been practicing for two weeks, I’m feeling good and getting a lot of reps.” LaRod Stephens-Howling has done a decent job in relief of both Wells and Ryan Williams, but having Wells back will be nice.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
