Following his introductory press conference last week, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was asked about the team's running game.
I know that Ryan (Williams) can flat run the football, Arians said. Im a Hokie. I know all about Ryan and I love him.
Arians attended and played college football at Virginia Tech. Maybe thats why he never mentioned the guy at the top of the Cardinals depth chart: Beanie Wells. Or maybe it was just an oversight.
Wells certainly hopes so, because hes looking at this coaching change as a chance for a fresh start. Wells finished with career lows in carries (88) and yards (234) this season after spending the first half of the year on IR to heal his surgically repaired knee and, to a lesser extent, a severe case of turf toe.
This was a difficult season for me, personally, said Wells, who arrived back in the Valley on Wednesday after spending some time with family and friends back home in Ohio. There were a lot of challenges that Ive never really faced before.
