Beanie Wells Questionable?

Reports have surfaced that Chris 'Beanie' Wells is doubtful for Saturday night's tilt against the #1 ranked Trojans.

This from the article on NBCSports:
Ohio State coach Jim Tressel says it’s doubtful that starting tailback Chris “Beanie” Wells will play Saturday night against top-ranked Southern California.

Tressel said Thursday there was lingering soreness for Wells in his right foot after he worked out the night before. Wells did not practice with the team Thursday morning.

Is this gamesmanship? Is Tressel going to throw out some smoke and steam? Who knows - I don't think the SoCal Trojans are going to prepare any different than they did when they thought Wells was playing. Coach Carroll isn't stupid. He knows how the game is played. Tressel knows how the game is played.

We'll have to see the next two days. But there is apart of me that feels strongly we'll see Beanie Wells Saturday night.

A game this huge? Hard to believe he'll miss it.
