8-8-11: Bird Droppings - Wilson Injury Update

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

For today, a little update on Adrian Wilson's injury. It looks like he wants to play through the injury this season like he did with the injury he had last year.

Also a little note, I will be going up to Flagstaff today to watch a day of Training Camp. I'm not going to do any live tweets, but I'll have some impressions along with some pictures from the practice up sometime after I get back to Mesa later tonight.

I won't be there in time for the walk through they just added for this morning, but from what I've heard those really aren't worth watching anyway.

Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl safety Adrian Wilson has a torn muscle in his biceps, according to sources, but he is determined to try to play with it.

Cardinals' rookie free agents work with disadvantage
After a summer of uncertainty and trying to work out on their own, 21 rookie free agents signed with the Cardinals, received their playbooks and started practice. "Man, it's bigger than the Bible," rookie tackle Eric Mensik said of the playbook. "I just looked around at the other rookies, and we were just like, 'What did we get ourselves into?'

No one but Adrian Wilson knew how badly the Pro Bowl safety was injured last season. Everyone knows how badly he's hurting in 2011.

Word From the Birds Blog - Surgery for a DB, but not Wilson
While the final news of what is happening with safety Adrian Wilson is TBA, cornerback Michael Adams announced via Twitter that was going to have knee surgery Monday and that it would be an arthroscopic procedure. Adams sat out Saturday with the sore knee. Last year, both Beanie Wells and Steve Breaston ended up having scope jobs, and, as long as everything goes well, it’s a short-term deal — a few weeks. That would be good news for Adams. As for Wilson, no official word has been announced yet. That is expected Monday, when coach Ken Whisenhunt addresses the media at lunchtime. KTAR’s Paul Calvisi reported on Twitter that Wilson might have an option of trying to rehab and then playing most of the season. Again, we will see. Kicker Kay Feely tweeted last night, "If anyone can come back from a serious injury it would be @adrian_wilson24. The man is a machine."

Word From the Birds Blog - Any name better than no name
Undrafted rookie outside linebacker Duke Lemmens, a Florida product, may have an uphill battle making the team given his position on the depth chart — "There are a lot of good players and not too many spots," he said — but it’s safe to say he won’t be forgotten. Well, kind of.
