The Arizona Cardinals announced today that running back Beanie Wells and tight end Jeff King have been placed on the physically unable to perform list. Both have been expected for quite some time now.
Whisenhunt said RB Beanie Wells and TE Jeff King are on PUP but both were expected. Not concerned with Beanie. Neither expected down long.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) July 25, 2012
Wells is recovering from knee surgery he had last January, and the team expects him back on the practice field relatively soon. His timetable for return has been a bit vague since his surgery and the Cardinals are just playing it safe by keeping him out of organized team activities.
King tore one of his quads while working out over the offseason, and like Wells, it was expected that the team would place him on the PUP list. King is obviously not quite ready for training camp, but the team is anticipating that barring any setback the back-up tight end will be ready in time for the start of the season.
