Running back Beanie Wells has yet to participate in training camp workouts because of a recovering knee. He had an offseason scope of his knee and has not participated in any practices. He has not said what exactly what the procedure was other than a "scope".
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt spoke to the media after morning practice on Monday and gave some news that will be optimistic.
"He will probably start doing some work next week," Whisenhunt said. "We'd like to get him involved in preseason games, probably a little bit later. We'll see how it goes."
Wells knows he needs to get his legs under him, but he doesn't want to do too much in the preseason and in practice.
Until he is back, there will be doubts, but is he can come back effective, it will be a huge boost to the offense and it will be his opportunity to show fans that he is ready to go.
