Beanie reinjures his ankle

Cardinals rookie running back Chris “Beanie” Wells, the 31st overall pick in the 2009 draft, injured his ankle on the same day he signed his rookie contract.

Wells recently returned to practice. On Tuesday night, however, Wells reinjured the ankle.

Per Mike Jurecki of XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix, Wells said he was “OK” -- but his status for the team’s next preseason game, on Saturday night against the Chargers, remains undecided.

Wells missed the preseason opener last week against the Steelers.

According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Wells had seemed to be favoring the ankle since returning to practice.

Wells faced durability questions, and his current status is doing nothing to provide an answer other than, “Maybe he isn’t.”
