Seattle Seahawks S Jamal Adams out for the season

 | September 16, 2022

In unfortunate news, the safety suffered a significant injury in Week 1.


Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams is anticipated to miss the rest of the 2022-23 NFL season after suffering an injury to his quadriceps tendon.

He was placed on the injured reserve (IR) yesterday and the team signed defensive back Teez Tabor off the Atlanta Falcons' practice squad to take his place on their 53-man roster.

During the postgame press conference, Coach Pete Carroll called it a “serious” injury and said on his weekly radio show on Seattle Sports 710 AM on Tuesday morning that Adams would “have to get some work on that.”

NFL Network was the first group to report that Adams would need season-ending surgery.

On the radio show, Carrol added: “The fact that he is such a heartthrob about the game of football, he loves playing and he just can't deal with it right now about 'how could this keep happening?’

“It was good he had his mom and dad in the locker room really during the game when he was in there to kind of help him through it and all that, but it was really tough. So I hope everybody sends the love to him.”

Adams had three tackles and defended a pass before leaving the game and being replaced by Josh Jones.

Seattle also has Ryan Neal as an option at the safety postion. Neal made four starts in 2020 while Adams was sidelined by a groin injury.

Shortly before Week 1, Adams commented: “I’m back in my element, man. I feel like I'm back playing defense.”
