Beanie Wells Active For Cardinals, Todd Heap Out Versus Ravens

The Arizona Cardinals got some good news headed into their road game against the Baltimore Ravens. Feature back Beanie Wells is active and should play. Wells hurt his knee in the second quarter of last week's game and was questionable headed into this Sunday. The Cardinals desperately need Wells running game to take pressure off Kevin Kolb.

Not active for the Cardinals is TE Todd Heap who will miss his second game due to a hamstring issue. Look for Kolb to finally connect with rookie TE Rob Housler after missing him for wide open touchdowns in the last two games. 

Veteran OLB Joey Porter (knee) is also inactive which moves rookie Sam Acho into the starting spot. Porter has been ineffective more of the season and with the Cardinals at 1-5 on the season, it's time to start seeing what Acho can do and giving him more opportunities to play. We would also expect to see the other OLB, O'Brien Schofield getting more reps behind Clark Haggans and don't be surprised to see ILB Stewart Bradley play more in place of Paris Lenon.
