Surgery for a DB, but not Wilson

Posted by Darren Urban on August 7, 2011 – 4:54 pm

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 Jay Feely tweeted last night, “If anyone can come back from a serious injury it would be @adrian_wilson24. The man is a machine.”

Wilson himself tweeted out a message too. From yesterday, “Cardinal Fans just be patient and believe in the impossible.. #teamwilson I will never give up on this TEAM ever!!!”

    if rashad johnson can’t step up this year we’ll even be giving up 300 yard passing games to tavaris jackson, you know, the guy who couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with a football and a running start…

    RE: Ware

    I have not heard, but I would be surprised if he didn’t pass.

    I sure hope AW can come back, Adams too, he is a force on special teams. Although it would be nice to hear a sliver of truth about this injury but I am not holding my breath.

    I was at the red and white practice when it happened. i was at the field that they didnt use waiting for autographs with a man that somehow has connections with alot of players. he told me that patrick peterson told him, that hes out for 4-6 weeks. when peterson came to do autographs after the practice, he talked to the guy again and i was next to him listening…

    Glad to hear! I want A-dub back, but not if he isn’t healthy! Take whatever time you need. If surgery is the best option to get fully healed then so be it. Realistically this is a growing pains year anyway. Playoffs sure, superbowl…meh maybe in a few years.

    We all wish the very best recovery to both Adian and mike. They are both very much needed. Health first and football second. God Bless.

    Any early observations on Rashad thus far? I would rather see him in there than Ware, time to see if he can produce. He at least looks to be in noticeably better shape this year.

    RE: Rashad

    He’s going to get his chance, that’s for sure. He’s ahead of Ware certainly.

    I can honestly say the idea of going after Taylor Mays is laughable! If he is some huge diamond in the rough then why has no one tried to go after him and why are the 49ers in a hurry to unload him so they don’t have to cut a 2nd round pick. Also if it is worth taking a chance on him why not wait until he is cut after they can’t trade him and get him cheap without trading anything to our division rival. He came out a publicly blast his college coach because he didn’t draft him in the first round. Wow that sounds like a person that is as mentality strong as a 13 year old. That is clearly not the kind of person you can trust to lead or even contribute to a good team in the secondary. But I can see with his 31 career tackles and 2 pass defends why everyone wants him so bad.

    Well if its 4 -6 weeks then he only miss the first 3 games tops and those will not be the hard ones . If it looks like he is out all season . Then its time to see if 3 years invested in Rashad Johnson was worth it . That guy needs to step up . Lets see if he gots what it takes before we make any real moves . God speed A-Dub and god bless .

    Adrian we need you far more in january and beyond than we do at the start of the season. Don’t rush back at the expense of your career. We all know your a man’s man but sometimes its best to let yourself heal up and come back at 100%.

    Money Mike best of luck with your scope. Who is going to show peterson how to tackle while your out?

    The operative words being, “if everything goes well” regarding Adams. Breaston was never the same after his knee injury against Pittsburgh in a meaningless preseason game just to give the backup QBs some reps with the first team WRs in 2007.

    Personally, I think meniscus tears can be more devastating long-term than ACL or MCL tears as odd as that may seem. Doctors can sew together ligaments and many athletes actually come out of CL surgeries stronger than b4 the tear. However, you can’t replace the meniscus which is the cushion betwen the big knee bones. Once enough of it is eroded/removed, the only option is a knee replacemnt. Meniscal tears almost always guarantee a future career tied to nagging knee injuries that keep athletes operating at some fraction of 100% but never 100%.
