Seahawks' Jamal Adams sustains broken finger, will wear special cast for games

Jamal Adams is on the mend again, but the Seahawks’ star safety is doing his best not to miss a game in 2022.

Adams broke his finger after getting stuck in a helmet during a recent practice, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday, according to a source. Rapoport added that Adams is still expected to train with a club and will wear a special roster for matches.

If Adams needs surgery, which Rapoport noted as likely, the plan is for Adams to wait until after the 2022 season to have the surgery.

The news continues what has been an injury-laden tenure in Seattle for Adams, who has yet to complete a full season with the Seahawks. The former All-Pro suffered season-ending shoulder surgery after week 13 of last season, limiting his availability to 12 games in consecutive years.

When healthy, Adams is one of the most exciting safeties in the NFL. Known for his sure tackle and big threat in the middle, the 26-year-old also has a knack for rushing the quarterback, evidenced by the 9.5 sacks he produced in his first season with the Seahawks in 2020. .

Seattle negotiated two first-round picks to the Jets to acquire Adams ahead of the 2020 season, and handed the five-year veteran a $70 million extension over four years before 2021, making him the highest-paid safety in the league at the time of the deal.
