Arizona Cardinals Training Camp: Beanie Wells Returns to Practice, Breaston Injures Knee

The Arizona Cardinals were back on the practice field this weekend and today marks the final week of their time in Flagstaff (yea, that's right just four more days of training camp). The biggest news of the weekend was that Chris Wells rejoined his team mates on the field, although his practice reps were limited. He joked with reporters after the practice that he'd talk to Whiz about getting more reps but the bottom line is that his ankle feels close to 100%. The only time that the ankle gave him any problems was at the end of sprints while he was slowing down, but attributed that to not being warm after standing on the sidelines for a bit. As long as he doesn't miss any more practice time (five practices in the next four days) or have any other setbacks, Beanie should suit up against the Chargers. Wells wasn't the only player who returned to the practice though as tight end Anthony Becht finally returned. Unfortunately though the law of averages was in full effect because the Cardinals had to add two new names to the injury report, Steve Breaston and Dennis Keyes.

  • Breaston sprained his PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) and had a bone bruise on his right knee, but his official status is day-to-day. Coach Whiz did add that he wouldn't rule him out of playing Saturday against San Diego and that the amount of swelling will be key.
  • Keyes' has some sort of right calf strain that Whiz is calling an injury that keep him out a week or two.
  • The rest of the injury report is pretty much the same with Keilen Dykes (quad strain) and Elliot Vallejo (dislocated knee) still at least a couple of weeks away from returning. Early Doucet also has not returned to practice yet but he's hopeful that his return is eminent. He's still saying that he expects to play this Saturday.

The team has just one afternoon practice today.
