Ware's absence could put Cards in bind

By Mike Sando

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Cardinals do not expect Matt Ware to return after the backup safety suffered a knee injury.

Ware's absence hurt the Cardinals previously this season, including against the 49ers in Week 1.

With Ware out of the game, strong safety Adrian Wilson failed to adjust properly, and allowed Frank Gore to escape uncovered for a touchdown reception.
