On a glorious, sunny day in Northern Arizona, the Cardinals might have lost one of those most important players for a significant amount of time.
Strong safety Adrian Wilson suffered an injury to his right bicep/elbow area during a full-team period early in practice. Wilson walked off the field with the elbow wrapped in ice and was going to undergo an MRI late today.
There is some fear that the muscle might be torn, which would require surgery.
It's too early to tell how much time Wilson might miss, but all the Cardinals weren't completely off the practice field when someone from the front office called safety Matt Ware, an unrestricted free agent. Ware will sign, pending a physical.
The loss of Wilson for any amount of time is a huge blow, even though Wilson is coming off a down season. He is expected to thrive in the new scheme installed by coordinator Ray Horton.
