The Arizona Cardinals look like a team that is going to need something to fire them up into any win that they get this season. Seeing their star running back play with an injured hamstring grinding for every yard would be the empowered type of play to get the Cardinals up and running in week 3.

The Arizona Cardinals are coming up against another struggling team in the form of the Seattle Seahawks. This game is set up for the Cardinals to capitalize and get their second win if they can get Beanie Wells on the field.

The Seahawks have let over a 100 yards on average each game this season. Beanie Wells would be able to make the Seahawks average go up.

The Cardinals after the first two weeks look like they are connecting offensively and Beanie Wells feels confident that his hamstring is okay.

Wells sprinted out to practice on Friday and then when asked on ESPN if he would be able to play he said, "Yeah, definitely."

This statement shows the confidence that the Cardinals need to get a kick start.

Wells has run for 183 yards and two touchdowns in the first two weeks of the season.

If Wells can get back on the field, he will only add to these numbers. Wells is looking for a break out game to start his campaign and this would be the one.

The timing may be off due to his hamstring injury but it is a game that is begging for him to have a break out game where he rushes for nearly a 100 yards.

This is something that Wells is capable of. It will not be needed for the Cardinals to win the match up but Beanie Wells seeing the field is.
