The Pittsburgh Steelers had recently released running back Beanie Wells in for a free agent visit on Friday and that visit appears to have not gone so well.
The 24 year old Wells, who was recently let go by the Arizona Cardinals, partly because of a right knee problem, reportedly has a "bad wheel" according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Twitter.
Beanie Wells dealt with knee and toe issues last season while in Arizona. His physical with Pittsburgh seemed to confirm the obvious.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gary Dulac noted that Wells has a “BAD wheel.”
It may be some time before we hear Wells’ name again. Further physicals will only reveal the same thing. It may take the former Ohio State running back a few months...

The Cardinals continued their roster purge Monday by releasing running back Beanie Wells, the team's first-round pick in 2009 who started 23 games in his career but was slowed by numerous injuries.

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...

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.

Beanie Wells can be a solid fantasy football option, when healthy.
Once considered a can’t miss prospect, Beanie Wells has had his share of knee issues to make him a less than reliable fantasy option. He was downright nasty at times last year in posting his first 1,000 yard season in 2011. Beanie’s total last year was a little less than his total over his first two years...
