(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer The Arizona Cardinals have a drastic shortage of running backs, just when they are about to meet a Buffalo defense that has been highly susceptible to the run. Beanie Wells is long gone with a turf toe, with his earliest return Nov. 25. Now Ryan Williams is out for the season with a left shoulder injury that required surgery. Enter LaRod Stephens-Howling, the diminutive situational back who has been in this situation before. Replacing the injured Wells in last season's finale against Seattle, the 5-foot-7, 2009 seventh-round draft pick gained 93 yards in 17 carries in Arizona's 23-20 overtime victory. Behind Stephens-Howling are William Powell and Alfonso Smith, a depth chart that does not breed optimism for the Cardinal faithful.
