Adrian Wilson expected to play in season opener

Bad news for Cam Newton: Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson is expected to play in Arizona’s season opener, a little more than a month after Wilson partially tore his biceps.

Wilson chose to rehab the injury instead of getting surgery and re-joined the team in practice a few weeks ago.

“Unless there is any kind of setback, yeah, I feel pretty good about [Wilson playing,” Ken Whisenhunt said Friday via the Cardinals’ official website.

Whisenhunt has to be thrilled his defensive leader will try to gut it out all season.  Whiz needs seven wins this year to become the Cardinals’ franchise leader wins.

Get eight or nine wins, and you may just win the NFC West.

    Well he is no shut down corner!!!! But if he was, it seems Cam likes his TE anyways!!!!!

    This is really good news. A-Dub is one of the top three safeties in the league!

    He is a freak physically. Tough as heck also. Hope he can make it thru the season. Gonna be tough but great to see him try!

    What sucks for Cam is that A.Wilson gets a lot of sacks for a safety and i’m pretty sure Cam isn’t used to a safety of that caliber chasing him in the backfield

    Hopefully he won’t be risking further injury. I’d hate to see his career derailed all because he didn’t want to miss the season.

    You know a guy is tough when an entire fan goes. ” Oh, thank God it was Wilson who tore his biceps. He’ll be fine.”

    “Whiz needs seven wins this year to become the Cardinals’ franchise leader wins.”

    Seriously? That’s crazy. He’s only got 32 career wins. That can’t be right. No franchise can be that bad for all those decades.
