Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reported today that Cardinals' running back Beanie Wells isn't out of the woods yet when it comes to complete recovery from his offseason knee surgery. There was indication that things were "coming along," but the Cardinals' leading rusher from 2011 is still not ready to take the field.
"I'm rehabbing, just trying to get back," Wells said. He said he doesn't know his timetable for his return to the field. Wells has been at the facility, and on days where the veterans have gone out as an offense to work on passing routes, Wells has joined them outside even though he can't take part. His ability to take part in organized team activities and/or minicamp is to be announced. "I am hopeful, but it's offseason stuff," Wells said. "Being ready for training camp is the most important thing."
The Cardinals will likely ease Wells back in to avoid causing more issues with a knee that bothered him most of the year in 2011.
Also rehabbing and looking to take the field for Arizona is backfield mate Ryan Williams, who tore his patella tendon and missed all of last season. The team still has some time to get both Wells and Williams healthy before camps start in a few months.
