Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that safety Jamal Adams is prepared for his season debut in Week 4 against the Recent York Giants.
The previous LSU Tiger went down with a season-ending torn quadriceps in Week 1 of the 2022 campaign against the Denver Broncos. Adams was activated off of the physically unable to perform (PUP) list late in the summertime, so was eligible to return any time before Week 4.
The 27-year-old will get one extra day of preparation before his comeback, as Seattle will tackle Recent York on the road at 8:15 p.m. ET on “Monday Night Football.”
Following three seasons (including two Pro Bowls and one first-team All-Pro honor) with the Recent York Jets to start his profession, Adams was traded to the Seahawks in July 2020. The previous sixth overall pick was limited to 12 games in each of his first two campaigns in Seattle, before playing just one contest last yr.
Even with the missed time, Adams has shown how dominant he will be. He set the single-season sack record for a defensive back (9.5) during his first yr with the NFC West club and added a pair of interceptions in 2021.
Carroll described just how eager Adams was to return to the sector.
“He’s so ready,” the 72-year-old coach said, per a report by Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic. “As jacked up, as excited a player as he’s, we’ve just got to maintain him calmed down. I’ve already began talking to him about that in order that he doesn’t lose his brains because he’s so fired as much as play.”
