The Seattle Seahawks beat Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos on Monday night, but it came at a cost. Veteran safety Jamal Adams left the game with an injury. Unfortunately, it sounds like he may miss the rest of the season, as a result.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll announced this Tuesday morning that Adams' injury is "serious" and that he's heartbroken over it. It's still unclear what the exact injury is, but it doesn't sound too promising.
Seattle may need to hit the free-agent market to find some depth for the secondary this week.
"#Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says on @SeattleSports that safety Jamal Adams will need 'to get some work done' after injuring his knee Monday night," said Carroll, via Tom Pelissero. "'I know it's serious and it just breaks your heart.'"
As noted by NFL insider Mike Garafolo, Pete Carroll is making it sounds like Jamal Adams' season is over.
"My understanding is the #Seahawks are still waiting on final imaging of the injury but the tone of what Carroll has said last night and today indicates Jamal Adams’ season is likely over," said Garafolo.
This certainly casts a dark cloud over what was a triumphant season-opening win for the Seahawks. Believe it or not, they sit atop the NFC West standings at 1-0.
The Seahawks have a quick turnaround with a game vs. the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday.
