Jamal Adams diagnosed with “serious” knee injury that includes damage to his quad

Seahawks safety Jamal Adams can’t catch a break.

Adams was injured with 9:31 to play in the second quarter, and the Seahawks quickly ruled him as doubtful to return with a left knee injury. It sounds as if Adams won’t return for a while.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced postgame that Adams has a significant injury.

“He hurt his knee tonight. Not a typical knee injury,” Carroll said. “His quadricep tendon I think got damaged. He got hurt. So, it’s a serious injury.”

Adams injured his shoulder last season and missed the final five games. He required surgery for that and underwent surgery to fuse the two middle fingers on his left hand.

Adams missed time in training camp this summer with a broken finger.

Now, this, in his first game since Dec. 5, 2021. Adams was injured while hitting former teammate Russell Wilson on a blitz as the Broncos quarterback threw an incompletion.

Adams missed only two games in his first three NFL seasons with the Jets. He missed nine games in his first two seasons with the Seahawks and will miss more time this season.

  1. Never happy that a guy gets injured but the Seahawks made so many mistakes regarding Adams’ acquisition, his role/position, and subsequent contract, etc. The entire thing has been nothing short of a complete disaster. That being said, I hope he recovers and the injury doesn’t derail his career even more than it has been in Seattle. Can’t believe what I saw tonight, between Geno getting the W and Hackett’s disastrous end of game decision making. He must have been hanging out too much with Kingsbury and Zac Taylor where they decided they were going to just give games away this weekend.

  2. The guy just can’t stay out of the trainers room nowadays.

    Gregg Williams and that smash mouth system he runs really made Adams look better than he truly was… he just has never panned out at all since that trade.

  3. What a return this investment has panned out to be for the morons leading this sad sack franchise. Gifted with a likely hof QB they’ve driven the ship into the ground.

  4. As much hate as this guy gets this really sucks for him. It might just be that his body can’t hold up to football anymore. He looked great on the play he hurt himself on. Bad luck. Four picks in the first two rounds next year…might be time to draft another safety.

  5. Tough break he’s starting to remind me more and more of laron landry when he starting getting all those injuries piling up

  6. Adams is Richard Sherman lite….. all the mouth but half the talent.

    Jets absolutely fleeced the SeaGulls.

  7. Really tough, physical position. Guy hasn’t been able to stay healthy since the Seahawks traded for him. A fine player, but a warning to teams about how much to pay at certain positions. Almost the defensive equivalent of running back. Safeties often have a short shelf life so caveat emptor.

  8. Never want to see any player get hurt, but Adam’s has a hard time staying healthy. This wasn’t a surprise, hopefully he can return this year.

  9. Hate to see anyone hurt and wish him a speedy recovery.

    You have to wonder the way he plays if his body is just ready to call it quits.

    Not a smart acquisition by the Seahawks.

  10. Yet another reason that you NEVER go to far out with guaranteed contracts. They are almost guaranteed to get hurt and then produce nothing. Why would you pay full cost for non-producer? Ever?

  11. How unfortunate. There are players in this league that we expect this from. Nobody that checks PFT daily is that all surprised by this headline. A very solid player who is always one play away from injury. He’s made about $50 mil in his first six seasons and is guaranteed another $38 mil. Not bad for a guy that nobody expects to play every game. I hope this young man is wise with his money, because this very well may be his last contract.

  12. He should get his eyes checked too, should have had an interception but the ball hit him in his facemask!!!

    That is truly bad luck. Great player though.

    —————–

    He’s on one of the worst value contracts in NFL history. He’s also one of the most overrated in history.

    Adrian Phillips outperformed him 2 years in a row. Numerous Safeties have.

    If you can’t cover at all as a Safety, you shouldn’t be in the league or you need to play more of a spot/strategic/small role.

  14. What a return this investment has panned out to be for the morons leading this sad sack franchise. Gifted with a likely hof QB they’ve driven the ship into the ground.
    ==========

    Russ was paired with the #1 defense 4 years IN A ROW. Unheard of. No HOF QB in history had that luxury.

    1 Super Bowl to show for it.

  15. Adrian Phillips outperformed him 2 years in a row. Numerous Safeties have.
    ===========

    This guy is almost as bad as Pat Chung.

  16. Is Jamal a long lost Bosa or Watt brother? Seems like he is hurt as often as them. He is nearly as fragile as the Clown Clowney.

  17. Each injury that happens (major one to a highly paid player) makes the idea of guaranteeing all contracts sound crazier and crazier. Unless they are a max of maybe 3 years. Even that’s a gamble. That “guarantee” might well have to come at the expense of taking reduced salary (with some floor) when hurt, as teams need the relief. Don’t think the union would be receptive (ha ha) although the money would likely be put back into other players.
