Seahawks safety Jamal Adams got healthy in the offseason. Then, on the first day of practice, he broke a finger after getting it stuck in a helmet.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Adams will return to practice with a club on his hand. He’ll play while wearing a special cast.

Surgery after the season, per the report, is “likely.”

Obviously, the apparatus will make it harder for Adams to use the hand, reducing the likelihood of interceptions and fumble recoveries.

Adams has a history of playing through injuries, and of playing with with the kind of intensity that results in more injuries. He missed five games in 2021, and four in 2020.

He missed only two total games in his first three seasons. In 2018, he was named a first-team All Pro.

  1. Credit to the Stadium neighbors here. They sure made out like thieves in the night.

  2. It was rainy enough in Seattle before this dude arrived with the dark clouds hovering over him 24/7.

  3. He’ll be even more sure handed with a splint! The only way he’ll ever get another int is if the football gets stuck in his face mask.

  4. Oh, he’s special alright.

    He and Metcalf now take up 40 million per year together. Two overrated, self absorbed lunk heads taking up that amount under the cap.

    Yikes!

  5. So I’m guessing we’re expecting another ground breaking year with…. zero sacks.

  6. Shaquem griffen or Jamal adams both only play with one hand at least griffen cost the minimum…

  7. So why isnt he having surgery now if he is going to have to wear a club either way?

  8. That was fast. Surprised how fast of a decision was made. Financially driven decision?

  9. I remember when this guy was going to make the hall of fame off intercepting josh allen. His own words.

    He might be the most over rated player in history.

  10. Time to move on from Pete. It was silly to think he could chase the glory days of the Legion of Boom by trading for this guy. The myopia of thinking he was a safety away from having a stellar defense is similar to the Raiders thinking they were a punter away from having a SB team.

  11. They really gave up two firsts and a third for this guy knowing they were going to have to break the bank to re-sign him? The Jets deserve credit for the deal although I’m sure they’ll mess it up because that’s what they do.

    Ronnie Lott said this dude is soft.

    —-

    Ronnie was a special breed of crazy.

  13. Smells like the Seahawks FO is covering up it’s own mistakes with a built in excuse.

  14. He and Metcalf now take up 40 million per year together. Two overrated, self absorbed lunk heads taking up that amount under the cap.
