Arizona coach says Wells to be game-time decision

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Beanie Wells was limited in practice again on Friday and Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt says the running back's participation against Atlanta on Sunday will be a game-time decision.

Wells has been limited in practice all week because of a bruised right knee. He gave the knee a strong test on Thursday and insisted afterward that he would "definitely" go through a full practice on Friday. But Whisenhunt said the knee swelled up a bit overnight so Wells was limited again.

The second-year pro from Ohio State, Arizona's leading rusher last season, sat out last week's season-opening victory at St. Louis. He was injured against the Washington Redskins in the final preseason game on Sept. 2.

Wells was listed as questionable for Atlanta, as were teammates defensive end Kenny Iwebema (knee) and safety Hamza Abdullah (groin).
