Despite losing Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to the Eagles via the Kevin Kolb trade, the Cardinals still have a pretty stout secondary for 2011. So the report Monday that Pro Bowl safety (and High Point, North Carolina native!) Adrian Wilson has a torn muscle in his bicep is pretty disturbing.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Wilson "is determined to try and play with" the tear in the muscle and is going to get a second opinion on the injury.
Wilson also told, per Kyndra de St Aubin of 620 KTAR, Patrick Peterson that he would be back in time to play for Week 1.
Paul Calvisi of KTAR cites sources who tell him that a "non-surgical option exists" that would allow Wilson to "rehab [and] play most of the season."
Don't expect to see Wilson play in the preseason, and there's a very good reason why the Cardinals re-signed free agent safety Matt Ware, who played 14 games for Arizona last year.
