The Arizona Cardinals have activated Beanie Wells from the NFL's new injured/designated to return list, clearing the way for the running back to play Sunday against St. Louis. Wells has been sidelined since sustaining a severe turf toe injury against Philadelphia in Week 3. The league's new injured/designated to return list required Wells to be inactive for eight weeks, which meant that he missed seven games. He returned to practice last week. Wells' return will be a boost to a running game that ranks 30th out of 32 NFL teams. The time off also allowed Wells to rest his surgically repaired knee, which was still bothering him at the time of the toe injury. To make room on the roster, the Cardinals released linebacker Jamaal Westerman.
