The Cardinals, unfortunately, had to update their injury report to including Beanie Wells after he hurt his hamstring in Friday’s practice. He is listed as questionable and will probably be a game time decision. Wells certainly has an injury history and missed most of this offseason with knee problems, so this is not a good sign as he tries to hold off the now healthy 2011 2nd round pick Ryan Williams, who outplayed him in the preseason, for the starting running back job.

If Wells can’t go, Williams will see the bulk of the carries against Seattle and he’s probably the superior back so they might not miss Wells much. If Williams were to get the start, he’d be fantasy startable, even with a tough matchup. The problem is that this game is a 4 o’clock start and since it’s a game time decision, owners of Wells and Williams probably won’t know until many of the alternatives have already started. If you start Wells and he doesn’t play, your options to replace him will be limited, and vice versa if you start Williams and Wells does play. The Seahawks have a very stout run defense, 4th in the league last year, so it’s advisable to stay away from Arizona’s backfield this week.
