Beanie Wells will be back in the Arizona Cardinals backfield on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. The Rams remember him all too well. The last time Wells faced them, almost exactly a year ago, he rushed for a franchise-record 228 yards in a 23-20 Arizona victory in St. Louis. With Wells coming back from an injury and the Rams defense greatly improved, no one is expecting anything close to that this time around. But the presence of a healthy Wells is a welcome addition to a team looking to end a six-game losing streak.
