Cardinals RB Beanie Wells did more at practice Thursday, even “opening it up” a little to test his bad left hamstring, but he was still limited. Saying he has never had a hamstring injury before, Wells is expecting to be able to play Sunday.
“It sucks, but it’s a hamstring – what are you going to do about it,” Wells said. “I couldn’t have avoided it in any type of way.
“I sat out last week to make sure I’d be safe for this week.”
Whisenhunt said he was “optimistic” Wells would be able to play.
The Giants bottled up both Tim Hightower and Carnell Williams before getting worked over by LeSean McCoy to the tune of 128 yards on 24 carries. It's not a great matchup for Wells, though he deserves RB2/flex consideration if he is a full go.
