Cardinals running back Beanie Wells expressed frustration today at his limited role in Sunday’s 41-10 loss to the Chargers. Wells told Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic that he wasn’t happy with only 5 carries for 19 yards.
“I didn’t get into the game until there were four minutes left in the second quarter (Sunday against the Chargers) and I have no clue as to why. I’d like to think I’m a big part of this thing, but right now, I don’t feel it.” Wells, who had just five carries for 19 yards in Arizona’s 41-10 loss, said he planned to meet privately with coach Ken Whisenhunt to discuss his displeasure. “Oh, we’re definitely going to have a talk,” Wells told The Republic.
Later, as other reporters gathered around his locker, Wells vented his frustration even further. “No discredit to Tim,” he said of fellow running back and designated starter, Tim Hightower, “… but I hate to sit on the sideline watching. I’d rather be out there contributing to the team and that’s something I’m not pleased about. It’s crazy. I have no clue what they’re thinking upstairs. I would like to know, but hey, I’m definitely not pleased about it.”
