The Arizona Cardinals have released running back Beanie Wells after four injury-plagued seasons.

A first-round pick in 2009, Wells showed flashes of the brilliance he had at Ohio State, but has only played one full season -- his rookie year.

Wells eclipsed 1,000 yards and scored 10 touchdowns in 2011, but was limited to eight games last season due to a turf toe injury. He ran for 234 yards and eight touchdowns.

Wells has 2,471 yards and 24 touchdowns rushing, with 28 catches for 293 yards in 51 career games.

Arizona also released running back Fozzy Whittaker off its practice squad.
