More injury woes in 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-01

Adams (knee) posted 48 tackles (34 solo) and two pass breakups across nine games during the 2023 season.

Adams has played just 34 games over four seasons with the Seahawks, including just 10 games over the last two years. The 29-year-old safety has been a consistent starter when healthy, typically stacking up high tackle counts despite showing some lapses in coverage. His current knee injury shouldn't keep him out to start the 2024 season. Adams is signed through the 2025 season, although his contract has outs in each of the next two seasons.

Heads to IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-30

The Seahawks placed Adams (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Adams had missed Seattle's last two games with this knee injury and he was already ruled out for the team's Week 17 affair, but it now seems as if this issue will force him to miss the remainder of the year. The 28-year-old appeared in nine games for the Seahawks this season, tallying 48 total tackles, including seven tackles for loss. Julian Love is expected to see even more work in Seattle's secondary with Adams missing the team's last two games.

Missing another week

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Adams (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Steelers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The 28-year-old safety began Seattle's week of practice with two limited sessions, but after a DNP on Friday, he'll miss his third consecutive game Sunday. Head coach Pete Carroll told reporters Friday that Adams is "doing everything he can" to get back on the field, and it's "just really really frustrating that he can't quite get over the hump," per Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle. With Adams missing more time, expect Julian Love to see increased work in the Seahawks' secondary.

Limited at walkthrough

Adams (knee) was considered to be limited participant at Seattle's walkthrough Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Adams has missed the team's last two contests due to a knee injury, but head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that the safety was "bouncing around" at walkthrough and that he's "pumped to be back out there". It's unclear if the 28-year-old will be able to return to the field Sunday versus the Steelers, but Wednesday's session was a step in the right direction.

Missing Week 16

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-22

Adams (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Titans, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Adams recorded consecutive DNPs to open Seattle's week of practice, so it's no surprise that the All-Pro safety won't suit up Sunday. The 28-year-old has struggled to stay on the field recently, appearing in just 10 games over the past two seasons, and with him missing Week 16's contest, expect Julian Love to see increased work in the Seahawks' secondary.

Estimated as DNP on Wednesday

Adams (knee) was deemed a non-participant in Wednesday's walkthrough practice session, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports..

A nagging knee injury resulted in Adams sitting out his second game over the past five weeks Monday against Philadelphia, though Julian Love stepped in and had a big game with nine tackles and two pickoffs. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Adams is "still in recovery mode" and that the team has "acknowledged" the possibility of shutting the safety down for the season to let his knee get healthy, though Carroll also suggested that Adams wants to try to continue to play. That casts considerable uncertainly about his chance of suiting up Sunday in Tennessee, and Adams' practice participation during the remainder of Week 16 prep could shed more light on his outlook moving forward.

Out Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Adams (knee) is listed as inactive for Monday's game versus the Eagles, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official website reports.

Adams drew a questionable designation due to a knee injury heading into the evening, and he will ultimately sit out as a result. In his absence, Julian Love is a prime candidate to replace him at strong safety.

Questionable for Week 15

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-16

Adamas (knee) has been deemed questionable to face Philadelphia on Monday Night Football, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Adams has been dealing with a knee injury since late October, but it's cost him just one contest thus far. He didn't practice at all this week, though head coach Pete Carroll indicated that the team opted to rest the safety's knee, per Brady Henderson of That said, Carroll didn't give any indication about whether he expects Adams to play Monday, so he could be a true game-time call.

Sidelined to begin week

Adams (knee) did not practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Adams has been on the injury report with a knee issue for the better part of the last two months. He was able to play in all but one game since, so it's likely that he'll be ready to suit up Monday against the Eagles. Nevertheless, it would be reassuring to see Adams practice in some capacity either Friday or Saturday.
