During a second-down scramble, Jamal Adams was falling on Giants quarterback Daniel Jones when Jones’ knee struck the safety’s helmet, causing Adams to get hit with a concussion early in Seattle’s 24-3 victory.
Adams should return after the team’s next bye in time to play the Bengals in Week 6, according to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.
Carroll assured herself,
“He’s going to be OK.” The reason he is missing this game is that, as you witnessed, he was kicked in the head. Nevertheless, he will be alright, I’m sure, and he’ll be back out there after the preparation to bring him to this point and the weeks off. For now, it’s simply a minor mishap.”
What prepares him for the next time around, though, is all the work he puts in to get here. A significant portion of our work will include him.
Following his evaluation in Seattle’s blue tent and a visit to the locker room, the 27-year-old was noticeably disoriented and took some time to stand up. A little while later, Seattle declared him out for the remainder of the match.
Within the NFL network When Adams was in the medical tent before being escorted to the locker room, Mike Garafolo said that he was fighting with the red hat (an independent neurotrauma consultant).
Carroll claimed that the player “had a concussion and couldn’t play.” I couldn’t watch him play by the time all the assessments were over. An untrue statement was made by someone. Could he have responded to someone else who was present? To be honest, I’m not sure!”
Unfortunately, since the Seahawks acquired Adams in July 2020 in exchange for many picks, including two first-round selections, injuries have stolen playing time from the three-time Pro Bowler.
Although Adams made it to the Pro Bowl that season, he missed five games the following season due to a ruptured labrum. In Week 1 of 2022, a torn quadriceps sidelined him for the whole tournament.
That ailment prevented him from playing until tonight.
By recording two tackles and a quarterback pressure, he left a lasting (if brief) impression, but anything more will now have to wait.
