William Powell Emerges For The Arizona Cardinals
With running backs Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells injured, the Cardinals needed a new running back to step up, at least until Thanksgiving. Powell answered the call on Sunday. Powell rushed for 70 yards on 13 carries (5.4 average yards per rush). Powell also caught an eight yard pass out of the backfield. Powell was used in all situations, normal sets, no-huddle, 3rd downs, etc. He seized the most of his opportunity on Sunday while splitting time with LaRod Stephens-Howling.
The 24-year-old led the entire NFL in rushing during the preseason and earned himself a roster spot in the process. Powell saw his first action in week 4 against the Miami Dolphins where he had a two yard run as well as two catches. He also had four touches (1 rush and 3 receptions) against the St. Louis Rams on Thursday Night Football, two weeks ago. Powell has 22 total touches and 113 total yards on the season.
Powell is expected to be a major factor in the Cardinals running game until starting running back Wells returns at the end of November. With Wells’ injury history, Powell might need to be ready for a steady diet of touches throughout the remainder of the season.
The Cardinals will travel to play the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday. The kickoff is set for 10 A.M. Arizona time.
