And so the truth begins to come out. Though most fans suspected that Chris "Beanie" Wells' bruised knee was more than was being leaked out, the Arizona Cardinals stuck to their story, until today.
The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers tweets that Wells was actually suffering from a torn meniscus and had undergone surgery to repair it.
"I had my knee scoped," Wells said. "I had to take some time off and I'm back from it. It was a torn meniscus."
The NFL is notoriously cloak-and-dagger when it comes to injury reports and this is yet another example of such tomfoolery.
