The Cardinals’ Red and White practice was exactly how coach Ken Whisenhunt predicted — ups and downs for both sides of the ball. Quarterback Kevin Kolb made some nice throws, but he was also picked off three times.
Regardless, the biggest news happened when safety Adrian Wilson hurt either his bicep or elbow early on. He left, and Whisenhunt said Wilson will have an MRI. Whenever you are talking about biceps and MRIs, there has to be a fear there is a tear. Kent Somers already reported the Cards will bring back Matt Ware — which certainly doesn’t sound like the Cards expect Wilson back right away, anyway. Cornerback Patrick Peterson just tweeted out that people should keep Wilson “in their prayers.”
That’d be a blow to a defense that, again, made some strides Saturday. Certainly it’d be a blow because of Wilson’s leadership. Rashad Johnson was running at safety with Kerry Rhodes after Wilson went out.
– Defensive coordinator Ray Horton said nose tackle Dan Williams is “not in shape right now. He’s one of the guys we are counting on so he is doing what he needs to do to help us.”
– Local law enforcement estimated the crowd at 13,000, and by my eyes, it was the largest Red-White crowd ever, including the camp right after the Super Bowl in 2009.
– CB Michael Adams sat out with a sore knee.
– Asked about the biggest challenge of camp, Kolb said “That we’re on the 12th installation and it’s my third day (of practice).”
– Beanie scores a touchdown in the goal line drill:
