Late last week, less than a week into training camp, Arizona Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson picked up an undetermined injury that forced him off the practice field. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, that injury has turned out to be a torn muscle in his biceps, and Wilson would like to play through the injury without sitting out or having surgery. The initial diagnosis indicates that this should be possible, but Wilson is seeking a second opinion to make sure that the damage is not worse than initially believed.
A 10-year NFL veteran, Wilson is a four-time Pro Bowler who has played in all 16 games seven times in his career. Over the last two seasons, he has started every single game for the Cardinals. The NFC West is believed to be a wide-open division with no team looking like a playoff lock, so one big event like a serious injury to a Pro Bowl player from any team could seriously change the divisional standings.
