Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson to have MRI on right elbow

Uh oh.

The Arizona Cardinals are frantically trying to cram a full off-season into just a few short weeks and could now be faced with replacing a key defensive player.

Whiz-AW w/ some kind of elbow/bicep injury. Having MRI. From my pt of view…looked like he was in pain-crouched in corner away from field.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

If Wilson managed to tear something in his elbow, the Cardinals defense will be left with a gaping hole. Wilson has been the backbone of the defense and has not missed a game in the last two seasons.

While Wilson has been known to play through injury, like a hip abductor injury that was repaired by surgery after last season, a torn tendon or two could greatly affect his ability to make a play.

The young players have something to lose as well, should Wilson be injured. He’s been seen mentoring several younger players during this year’s camp.

If Wilson is out for a while, the Cardinals will be hard-pressed to replace his leadership and ability.
