Hyphen's gift and few injuries

Well, coach Ken Whisenhunt said the Cards were pretty healthy Monday and, technically, he's right -- the Cards have just four guys on the injury report. Sure, it's an important four, and two are receivers that are out, but ...

Aside from WRs Steve Breaston (knee) and Early Doucet (hernia) out with surgeries, RB Beanie Wells (knee) and G Alan Faneca (back) each were limited Wednesday, although I suspect both will be able to play Sunday just fine. Making up for the missing Breaston and Doucet might be more difficult. I will have a story on the homepage later.

There was good news after practice, though, with LaRod Stephens-Howling meeting the guy for whom the Hyphen won a house. Stephens-Howling ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown, and Dave Johnson (pictured below with Hyphen and Johnson's wife, Darci Mimz) got a free new home from Lennar Homes. Johnson clearly was grateful, saying of the Hyphen, "He's got a place to stay forever." Stephens-Howling, meanwhile, seems to have a little trouble at home. Asked if he had yet to get his own mother a house, LSH smiled. "Naw," he said. "She's kind of mad at me now."
