Jamal Adams will need season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum. The Seattle Seahawks safety was injured Sunday while facing the San Francisco 49ers. Seattle coach Pete Carroll initially identified the injury as a sprain after the game.
ESPN has reported that it’s much worse. Adams will need to undergo surgery that will sideline him for the rest of the year. He played through a similar labrum injury last season. Ian Rapoport shared the news on Good Morning Football and via Twitter.
“The #Seahawks lost star S Jamal Adams for the season, a significant blow to their defense.”
The 26-year-old safety has two interceptions and 87 tackles this year. He hasn’t recorded a sack. That’s unusual for Jamal Adams.
Last season, he earned a four-year $70 million extension. That was in the wake of a season where he logged a very impressive 9.5 sacks. The contract made him the highest paid safety in the NFL.
The Seahawks have struggled this season. They are currently in the cellar of the NFC West, with a record of 4-8. The division has been dominated by Kyler Murray and the 10-2 Arizona Cardinals.
