Beanie Wells: Injury not as severe as Cardinals feared
"I think it's good because at one point yesterday, we thought he might be done for the year," Whisenhunt said. "Now it certainly doesn't appear that way."
There is no timetable for the return of Wells, who has 423 rushing yards and six touchdowns this season.
"I don't want to set the young man up for failure, if he gets out there Wednesday [in practice] and it's a struggle," said Whisenhunt, who offered no further details on the injury other than to say that the knee is "stable."
"I don't really remember when it happened," Wells said. "I know I took a [hit] early in the first quarter and the second quarter I kind of felt something in there and took another shot."
Wells was seen wearing a T-shirt with the words "Marked Man" on it at the Cardinals' practice facility Monday.
