With Fitzgerald hurt, offense changing

SAN FRANCISCO -- This could be the dawn of the Beanie Wells-era in Arizona.

The Cardinals have lost Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald, at least temporarily, to a leg injury that was unpleasant to look at (team trainers appear to be testing his knee on the sideline).

Wells ran for gains of 5, 12, 9, 11 and 7 yards during the Cardinals' drive to open the second half. Tim Hightower lost a fumble earlier.

Arizona has wanted to become more of a running team. The team might be wise to move in that direction if Fitzgerald is out for any period of time.

Fitzgerald is limping toward the locker room.
