The Arizona Cardinals have been on a winning streak, but luck often runs out- and it may have during Sunday's game.
Darren Urban of tweeted "Beanie Wells said he could have turf toe. He and Darnell Dockett will be checked out tomorrow." Starting running back Beanie Wells has a dreaded turf toe injury, an injury he sustained in the third quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles. As we've blogged about recently, a turf toe injury can mean a long recovery.
Wells, who has been relatively ineffective these first few games of the 2012 season, who had been listed as probable with a knee issue entering the Week 3 game at home. By the time Wells had left the game on Sunday, he had rushed just 18 yards on eight carries. Cardinals fans have been disappointed with the former first round pick this season. Overall, he has run just 76 yards on 29 carries and hasn't scored a touchdown yet.
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt has been taking the committee approach in the running game, but that hasn't worked thus far this season.
Substitute Ryan Williams came into the game and averaged 6.4 yards per carry, with 83 yards on 13 carries.
