Shark Bites

ESPN's Brady Henderson reports that Seahawks S Jamal Adams will miss the rest of the season with what Henderson calls an injury to the quadriceps tendon in Adams' left leg. The veteran is set for surgery. We'll see about further details of the injury and the expected return timeline. Josh Jones is the next man up at safety for Seattle.

Recent Shark Bites

Seahawks S Jamal Adams (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. That should mean starter-level playing time for S Julian Love. We've dumped Adams from the Week 11 DB rankings and given Love a big boost.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams left just a few plays into his return game against the Giants on Monday night with a concussion. It was Adams' first action since he suffered a quad tear in Week 1 of last season. Frankly, it was his own fault. Adams went stupidly low with a tackle attempt on a running Daniel Jones and took a knee to the top of his head. That will likely keep Adams out for Week 5, but we'll watch his progress through the league protocol.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that S Jamal Adams will return to limited practice participation this week for the first time since tearing a quad muscle in last year's opener. “Let’s take it one day at a time,” Carroll said, per Pro Football Talk. “He’s going to have a limited amount of plays as he gets back and re-enters, but he’ll get individual work and start getting some of the basic stuff just to get him back out there.” It's too early to say when Adams will be ready for game action. But Seattle elected to activate him from the PUP before the season started. That indicates they expect him back by at least Week 4. Julian Love started in Adams' place against the Rams and remains an IDP option until Adams is ready. We'll see about Love's role beyond that.

It's no surprise that Seahawks S Jamal Adams and LB Jordyn Brooks have not participated in OTAs. Each is coming off a 2022 leg injury, and HC Pete Carroll said Thursday that it'll be a while before we know when to expect either player back. "We don't have time frames," he said, according to The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar. "We won't really know for another good six weeks, eight weeks or something like that. ... They've got their eyes set on getting back and getting ready to go for the season. Whether they can make it, we'll find out." You can tell by our 2023 IDP rankings that we're not betting on Brooks being ready early in the season. He tore his right ACL in Week 17 and doesn't seem like a good bet to return to full strength at any point in 2023. Adams sustained a far less common quad tendon injury in Week 1. That timeline would seem to indicate he has a much better shot than Brooks at being ready by September. But the fact that Carroll is addressing their returns similarly says you should be cautious with your Adams expectations. He sits conservatively in DB3 territory of our IDP rankings.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams will need surgery on his left knee after suffering an injury in Monday night's opener that reportedly included quad damage. HC Pete Carroll confirmed that Tuesday, though the extent of Adams' injury and expected return timeline is not yet clear. S Josh Jones will fill in and should present some tackle upside for deeper IDP leagues. Jones flashed in the past as a tackle collector with the Packers but didn't play well enough in coverage to keep a starting gig anywhere.
