Seattle is expected to sign Teez Tabor to fill the vacancy on the 53-man roster, sources told ESPN.
The safety of the Seattle Seahawks Jamal Adamswill miss the remainder of the season after sustaining a quadriceps tendon injury during the team’s season-opening game, a source confirmed to ESPN.
The Seahawks they plan to place adams on injured reserve Thursday, and will sign defensive back Teez Tabor from the practice squad Atlanta Falconsto take his place in the 53-man squad, the source confirmed.
adams and the Seahawks they believed that the three-time selected Pro Bowl he was about to enjoy a comeback season after a disappointing 2021 in which he was limited to no sack in 12 games. But, any possibility of it was ruled out in the second period of the victory of Seattle by 17-16 on the Denver Broncos in “monday night football“, when adams was carried off the field after being injured in a charge on his former teammate, Russell Wilson.
the head coach Peter Carroll described it as a “serious” injury at the end of the game, saying on his weekly radio show Tuesday that adams he would need “some work done there,” though he paused before declaring, then, that the Adams campaign was over.
The NFL Network first reported Tuesday that adams will undergo a surgery that will put an end to his campaign, and that Seattle will sign to Tabor.
“Yes, he’s hurt,” he said. Carroll to Seattle Sports 710-AM on Tuesday. “He hurt his knee and he’s going to need to get some work done there. I don’t know the extent of it, but I know it’s serious. It breaks your heart. He loves the game so much. He’s going to be sorely missed.”
adams he limped off the field of play in obvious pain, favoring his left leg, after pressing and hitting Wilson to help force an incomplete pass on third down. After being examined in the medical tent, he was helped aboard the aid cart. adams he looked visibly upset, at some point apparently bursting with frustration, as he was led into the locker room.
Carroll has said that the injury is to the quadriceps tendon of adamswhich joins the quadriceps muscle to the top of the patella.
“The fact that he’s so in love with the game of football, he loves playing football and he just can’t deal right now with ‘How can this keep happening?'” Carroll on his radio show. “It was nice that he had his mom and dad in the locker room during the game, really, when he was there to help with all of that, but it was really tough. So, I hope everyone sends their love to him.”
adams he had three tackles and one pass defensed before the injury. josh jones he replaced him for the rest of the game. Seattle also has Ryan Neal as an option at safety. Neal started four games in 2020, while adams He was sidelined with a groin injury.
Tabor26, played safety last year with the Chicago Bears under defensive coordinator Sean Desaiwho is now part of the group of assistants in Seattle.
He missed only two games through his first three seasons with the New York Jetsbut then missed nine games through his first two seasons with the Seahawksfour in 2020 and the final five last year after suffering another labral tear that required surgery. adams he missed time at the start of training camp over the summer after re-fracturing the middle finger on his left hand, another injury he has dealt with in the past. He had finger surgeries in each of the past two offseasons.
adams and the Seahawks they expected the new defense of Seattle — emphasizing his lineups with two safeties spreading the field deep — will leave him in position for a rebounding season. During his stellar debut campaign with Seattle in 2020, adams set the mark of NFL for a defensive back with 9.5 sacks, earning him his third invitation in a row at Pro Bowl. But then he was limited without a sack in 12 games last year before the shoulder injury ended his season.
Speaking last week for the first time since his most recent finger injury, adams said the new defense of Seattle it puts him “in position to make plays.”
“I’m back in my element, man,” he declared. “I feel like I’m back, playing defense.”
The Seahawks they acquired adams of the jets in 2020 for a package that included first-round picks in 2021 and 2022. He was signed to a four-year, $70 million contract extension last summer, which made him the highest-paid safety in the league at the time. NFL.
