“He’s got to to work himself back into being ready, and Ithink that’s an important thing,” head coach KenWhisenhuntsaid Thursday. “We’ve done the right thing with Beanie,asfar as the offseason about making sure he’s healthy andtrying to get him ready.“He’s gotta bust his tail over the next few weeks to beready for training camp because we’ve had some guys lookgood there.”One of those guys is second-year back Ryan Williams, whohas been limited himself as he is returning from agruesome knee injury suffered during a preseason game lastAugust. Williams got three carries during 11-on-11 drillsduring Wednesday night’s Fan Fest at University of PhoenixStadium in what was his first full-speed work since theinjury.“That was a big hurdle (Thursday) night, so I expect himto be ready to go in training camp,” Whisenhunt said.“We’re not going to throw him in there and give him everyrep.
