Seahawks S Jamal Adams has reported for the beginning of training camp. Whether he would do so was in question as the star safety and the team remain locked in negotiations on a long-term contract. But IDP fantasy players need not worry about Adams' status.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams played through a torn labrum in his left shoulder in Saturday night's win over the Rams and will now need offseason surgery, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Adams reportedly also might require surgery on his right shoulder and plans to have surgery on his left hand. We'll see whether any of these issues delay his start to 2021, but we'd bet on the star safety being ready.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams put in a full practice Friday and carries no injury designation into Sunday's game at Buffalo. That makes him ready to re-insert into IDP lineups. CB Shaq Griffin (hamstring) will miss his 2nd straight game. That keeps Tre Flowers in the starting lineup.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams (groin) and DE Benson Mayowa (ankle) are inactive for today's game against the 49ers. Adams' continued absence keeps Ryan Neal in the starting lineup. Neal is active after hitting the day questionable with a hamstring issue.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams returned to a limited practice Friday for the 1st time since suffering his groin injury back in Week 3. He's officially questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers and will reportedly be a game-time decision. A healthy Adams has showed a high fantasy ceiling, but it's tough to count on him here. Adams replacement Ryan Neal is also questionable after sustaining a hamstring injury during the practice week. He left Thursday's workout early but returned for another limited practice Friday. Also questionable is DE Benson Mayowa (ankle). We'll check the status of all 3 when inactives come out Sunday. Seattle has ruled out CB Shaq Griffin (concussion, hamstring), which will keep CB Tre Flowers in the lineup.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams (groin) will miss his 3rd straight game Sunday night against the Cardinals. Ryan Neal will start again in his place and looks like an IDP starter. He has defensed 4 passes including 2 INTs over 3 games: 2 starts and 35% of the snaps in the game Adams left early. Neal has also been a good bet for tackles, though he hasn't matched Adams' pass-rushing opportunities.

The Seahawks don't yet know whether S Jamal Adams will be ready to return for Sunday's game at Arizona. "It's a long season, and we'd love to have him back as soon as we can get him but we want him back when he's right and back for the long haul," HC Pete Carroll said Monday, according to Seahawks Wire. Adams missed the past 2 games with a groin injury, before Seattle's Week 6 bye. If he can't play in Week 7, then Ryan Neal would fill in once again. Neal has tallied 14 tackles (11 solo) over the past 2 games -- plus 3 passes defensed, including an INT. Neal would be in play for IDP lineups if Adams sits again.

HC Pete Carroll said Wednesday that S Jamal Adams will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday against Minnesota with the groin injury he suffered in Week 3. We'll see about the injuries affecting various other members of the secondary over the next couple of days.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters Monday that S Jamal Adams is not yet able to run following his groin injury late in the Week 3 win over Dallas, according to The Seattle Times. That doesn't necessarily mean Adams won't be ready by Sunday night. "I'm gonna hold out hope," Carroll added. "It's just too early in the week to know." We'll see about the safety's participation in practice this week. The Sunday night kickoff could further complicate the lineup decision for IDP owners, though, if Adams turns up questionable. It's also worth noting that Seattle has a Week 6 bye, which could factor into the decision on whether Adams plays in Week 5.

Seahawks CB Shaq Griffin is questionable (shoulder) for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He put in a full practice Friday after being limited the first 2 days. That suggests we should expect Griffin to play. We'll check his status Sunday morning to confirm. As expected, Seattle also officially ruled out S Jamal Adams (groin) and CB Quinton Dunbar (knee).

Seahawks S Jamal Adams left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Cowboys with a strained groin, NBC's Mike Florio reports. We'll see how serious that injury this is this week.

The Seahawks on Saturday acquired S Jamal Adams from the Jets. Seattle sent 1st-round picks in each of the next 2 drafts, a 3rd-round pick in 2021 and S Bradley McDougald for Adams and a 4th-rounder in 2022. That's a pretty shocking package for a safety, one of football's most fungible positions according to league salary averages. Adams, of course, ranks among the top players at the position. And he should continue to star in Seattle. Playing behind a stronger LB corps figures to ding his tackle upside, though. And the Seahawks aren't likely to have him rush the passer anywhere near as much as the Jets did last season. Adams garnered 101 pass-rushing chances in just 14 games, 2nd most among all safeties. Baltimore's Chuck Clark (106) was the only other safety to top 74 in that category. Seattle's entire safety group totaled 31 pass rushes. So don't expect Adams to come anywhere close to last season's 6 sacks. On the other side, S Bradley McDougald gains upside with the opportunity to take over Adams' spot. McDougald tallied top-20 fantasy finishes with the Bucs in 2016 and the Seahawks in 2018. He certainly carries that potential into 2020. We'll watch to make sure he wins the SS job with his new team. As for the team defenses, we're not adjusting the numbers on either unit for this trade.

Jets S Jamal Adams (ankle) is active for today's game against the Bills. He entered the day questionable, but played through last week's questionable tag to return from his 2-game injury. Put Adams into your Week 17 IDP lineups.

Jets S Jamal Adams (ankle) is active for today's game against the Steelers, as he said he would be. Go ahead and return him to IDP lineups in most cases. Adams' return likely pushes Darryl Roberts back to reserve status.

Jets S Jamal Adams tweeted Saturday, "I'm back." Adams is officially questionable with the ankle injury that cost him the past 2 games. It sounds like you can expect to use him in your IDP lineups, though. We'll confirm that status Sunday morning when the early-game inactives come out.
