Beanie Wells Injury Update: Neck Stinger And Nagging Knee Injury Hamper Wells In Week 9

Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells has been playing a lot of this season with one ailment or another. The major story of the last few weeks with regard to Wells has of course been his nagging knee injury, but a whole new wrinkle popped up in Sunday's win against the St. Louis Rams.

After a largely uneventful game for Wells, he exited in the third quarter after suffering a neck stinger. Although he returned to the game on the next possession, there is no telling how this new injury will effect Wells in the near future. The stinger could indeed have been nothing serious at all, just a momentary issue that caused concern and then went away. Given that Wells is currently playing with a knee injury that is limiting his ability, the stinger might raise a few more eyebrows than it normally would.

Wells is clearly having issues turning the corner and kicking things into high gear due to his sketchy knee. He managed to pick his game up a bit after returning from the neck stinger, and finished the game with 20 yards on 10 carries and an additional 13 yards on two receptions. It will be interesting to see if his knee improves at all over the next week or if he gets some rest next Sunday. (Via Rotoworld)
