Beanie Wells vs Ryan Williams

Postby stomperrob » Thu Jun 14, 2012 12:51 pm

...and let's not forget LaRod Stevens-Howling. Ryan Williams still isn't 100% but hopes to be by the time the season starts - I'm hoping for big things from him this year as I have him on a couple of dynasty teams, he will def eat into Wells workload.

Arizona Cardinals confident in running back corps

.

His starting running back has spent more time with an athletic trainer than teammates in practice. And until Wednesday night, the backup hadn't participated in full-squad drills this off-season.

So it's no wonder Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt preferred to tiptoe around a question about how his young running backs might complement each other this season. "I'm not going to talk a lot about it," Whisenhunt said, "because when I start telling you about how excited I am, then something is going to happen."

If the group is healthy, here's what the Cardinals think they have.

A powerful, punishing runner -- Beanie Wells, the starter.

An instinctive one who can change direction quickly -- Ryan Williams.

And a dynamic, game-breaking threat in specialty packages -- LaRod Stephens-Howling.

I like Williams in the 9th much more than Beanie in the 4th/5th

Only question with Williams is his durability...

Arizona Cardinals' Beanie Wells, Jeff King placed on Physically Unable to Perform list
Both players failed physicals; coach expects neither to miss much practice

FLAGSTAFF - Running back Beanie Wells and tight end Jeff King, both starters, were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

They will not practice until they are moved from the list, which can happen at any time.

Wells is recovering from knee surgery, and King suffered a partially torn quadriceps tendon in off-season workouts.

Both players failed their physicals, Whisenhunt said, but the coach expects neither player to miss much practice time.

"It's a way for us to assess where they are physically, and then we'll get them out there," Whisenhunt said.

The critical time for players on PUP is players remaining on PUP at the end of the preseason then must miss the first six weeks of the season. "That won't be the case with either of these guys," Whisenhunt said.

Wells missed all off-season practices and faces a challenge in training camp from Ryan Williams, a second-round pick in 2011.

While it is never a good thing to see a player injured, my main dynasty where I have Williams certainly makes me hope that Williams can step in and hold the job steady.

I've had a partial quad repair. That is no fun and is on par with an ACL in terms of rehab, if his is anything like mine. I remember the Williams hype last year, bought low on Wells and it worked out pretty well. THis season Williams seems like the best low cost/high upside player in the Cards' backfield. Price is too high for Wells, considering he's a guy who has been nagged by injuries for his whole NFL career. The guy wore a questionable tag all season last year, and it was tough to play him even without Williams in the picture. This is Williams' year, iMO.

Beanie Wells, Ryan Williams bring thunder and lightning pop to backfield
Running backs with contrasting styles healthy for camp
by Kent Somers - Jul. 26, 2012 05:35 PM
The Republic | azcentral.com

FLAGSTAFF -- It takes a certain amount of imagination or faith to envision just how much of a threat the Cardinals running backs could be this fall.

Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams are expected to share duties but have never played together. Wells remains out while recovering from knee surgery, while Williams missed all of last year, his rookie season, with a torn patellar tendon.

The plan is for both to be healthy when the regular season starts. If so, they could form a productive duo, with styles that contrast, yet complement each other.

"You've got Beanie's power, he's explosive," offensive coordinator Mike Miller said. "When he gets rolling, he's a punishing guy. Then you've got Ryan, who can also be punishing in his own way, but also a slasher and shows flashes of finishing speed."

LaRod Stephens-Howling's skills in the passing game and on draw plays give Miller lots of room for creativity in deciding how to use his running backs.

The hitch in this grand plan, however, is that Wells and Williams are coming off serious knee problems. The Cardinals are confident the two will be ready for the season, based on the opinion of the team's medical staff.

Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells' 1st practice a cautious debut
by Kent Somers - Aug. 7, 2012 10:30 PM
The Republic | azcentral.com.


ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - Running back Beanie Wells practiced for the first time this year on Tuesday, the same day he turned 24 for the first time. But Wells is unlikely to play in the preseason game Friday against the Chiefs.

Wells, who had surgery on his right knee this off-season, was activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list on Tuesday.

But with four preseason games remaining, the Cardinals don't feel the need to rush Wells back on the field.

"We're going to be conservative with working him back in," coach Ken Whisenhunt said.

Tuesday morning's walkthrough was the first time since 2011 that Wells joined his teammates on the practice field. He did not practice during minicamp or voluntary practices and missed the first two weeks of training camp.

Wells' preseason debut is more likely to come next week against the Raiders than Friday against the Chiefs.

Arizona Cardinals running backs Ryan Williams, Beanie Wells set to tag-team in preseason
by Kent Somers - Aug. 21, 2012 05:02 PM
azcentral sports


FLAGSTAFF - Running backs Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams are scheduled to play in the same game on Thursday for the first time in more than a year.

Williams, who missed all of last season with a knee injury, made his preseason debut last week, gaining 25 yards on five carries, including a touchdown.

Wells, who underwent knee surgery in January, is expected to participate in a handful of plays on Thursday against the Titans in Nashville.

Wells has increased his participation in practice the past two weeks, although at times he appeared to have a slight limp. It's tough to tell when Wells is limping, however, because he has never looked smooth when not at full speed.

"When he gets going, you don't see a limp," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "It will be interesting to see when he gets the adrenalin flowing in a game. There are no concerns about anything from a health standpoint with his knee. It looks stable and he looks good when he's running."

It appears to me like these guys are going to split 50/50 with the one who starts performing better gaining more carries along the way. Which one who knows which is why they are to be had in Tandem.
