Adrian Wilson Injury: Non-Surgery Rehab Option A Possibility

While the results of Adrian Wilson's elbow MRI have not yet been revealed, there is some hope inside the Arizona Cardinals' organization that the safety will be able to play this season. According to KTAR's Paul Calvisi, there is some train of thought that Wilson may not require surgery and just undergo rehab.

If that were the case, Wilson could "still play most of season," but that is still vague. Is that a game or two, maybe three? Wilson is a leader on the defense and a mentor to many of the younger players on the team. Missing more than the first few games of the season could cause issues for a team that will look to get off to a hot start. New quarterback Kevin Kolb alone won't win games for the Cards if the defense founders early on.

But results of Wilson's MRI are likely to come out on Monday, which will help determine the future course of Wilson's recovery. Cardinals fans who are holding their breath right now will hopefully let out a sigh of relief on Monday.
