NFL Players OF Week 1
Chris “Beanie” Wells Will Play Against USC
Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said Tuesday that running back Chris “Beanie” Wells will play in Saturday’s game against top-ranked USC after missing last week’s game with an injury to his right big toe.
How much Wells plays largely depends on his progress in practices Tuesday and Wednesday. Wells will run and go through individual drills Tuesday before participating fully in Wednesday’s workout.
“He probably ran better than I thought he might [on Monday],” Tressel said.
Wells has been testing the foot/toe on a stationary bike and in the pool. He’s listed as the starter on this week’s depth chart ahead of Dan “Boom” Herron, who received the bulk of the carries last week.
