Cardinals vs. Panthers Injury Update: Adrian Wilson Fully Practicing

Adrian Wilson suffered a bicep tear early in camp and didn't play much through the preseason; he spent most of the offseason rehabbing it instead of having to get surgery that would have kept him out of football for a more prolonged period. But it looks like he's back and ready for the season as he was in full practice mode on Wednesday. Seth Pollack relayed this quote from defensive coordinator Ray Horton about what Wilson's status will be for the opening game.

"Is he going to be a little rusty? Yeah, I expect him to. But we'll try and cater the defense to him and make sure he's not asked to something he hasn't done in practice...One thing that kid does is he comes downhill very hard so you can expect him to come downhill very hard."

Pretty amazing recovery to come back from an injury this quickly. You have to wonder if Wilson is fully healthy, but he will play.
