Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams is set to miss the remainder of the current NFL season after incurring an injury to his quadriceps tendon, ESPN confirmed on Friday.
Adams’ injury came during Seattle’s 17-16 victory in their season opener against the Denver Broncos on Monday. He went down in pain during the second quarter after blitzing former teammate Russell Wilson.
Following the Seahawks’ narrow win, coach Pete Carroll revealed Jamal Adams’ injury to be a severe one during a postgame conference as well as on his weekly radio show on Seattle Sports 710 AM.
While 2021 was a disappointing campaign for the 26-year-old, the team held high hopes for 2022 being the year that the three-time Pro Bowl selection would mark his comeback. Prior to being carted off the field, the star safety made three tackles and defended a pass.
During his first three seasons of NFL with the New York Jets, Adams missed just two games. It was in 2020 that Adams’ injury struggles began, missing four games due to a groin injury and five games at the end of last season as a result of a torn shoulder labrum that required surgery.
