Seahawks safety Jamal Adams will undergo surgery to repair a torn quad muscle. He tore the muscle in Week 1’s win against the Broncos, and was expected to miss time. The timetable is now set, as he cannot return from the surgery until 2023.
The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Thursday.
Adams was taken with the sixth overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Jets. After three seasons there, he was traded to Seattle for two first round picks, along with a third rounder and a player. He signed a four-year deal with the Seahawks in August of 2021.
He has earned First Team All-Pro honors once, and was selected to the Second Team All-Pro twice, along with three Pro Bowl selections. During his only 2021 appearance, Adams deflected a pass and had three combined tackles.
