Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams to have season-ending surgery on torn quad tendon


Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams is expected to have season-ending surgery to repair his torn quad tendon. Adams suffered the injury in Seattle’s 17-16 win over the Denver Broncos on Monday and will be placed on injured reserve. Adams recorded three tackles and one pass defensed before exiting in the first game of this season due to the aforementioned injury. Seattle signed cornerback Teez Tabor off the Falcons’ practice squad to fill Adams’ roster spot.

Adams began his career as a first-round pick of the New York Jets in 2017, but he has spent the last two seasons in Seattle. The Seahawks signed Adams to a four-year deal worth $72 million one year after acquiring him from the Jets. A three-time All-Pro, Adams reached the Pro Bowl in his first season in Seattle. Since then, however, Adams has struggled with injuries, missing five games in 2021.
