Since exiting the Seahawks’ Week 3 win over the Cowboys, both first-round pick Jordyn Brooks and Jamal Adams appeared unlikely to make it back in time for Seattle’s trip to play the Dolphins in Week 4.
The status of the two newcomers to the Seahawks’ defense seemed further in doubt on Wednesday, with Pete Carroll admitting Adams was “pretty sore,” while he nursed a groin strain. Brooks, meanwhile, faced a “real challenge” to play in Miami.
Now, it is confirmed what we suspected: Seattle will be without both Adams and Brooks in Week 4. Carroll, appearing on KIRO 97.3, said that the two defenders would not make it back for Sunday.

Much better update for RB Chris Carson (knee), who “had an excellent week” and bounced right back
Thankfully, it is better news for Chris Carson, who appears in line to retain his starting role after a scary looking injury against Dallas.
Looking ahead to Week 5 and the Seahawks’ game against the Vikings, Adams is the more likely bet to make it back compared to Brooks, who could miss multiple weeks with his sprained MCL.
While Adams and Brooks have already been declared out, we can expect further health updates on Friday afternoon when Seattle releases their final Week 4 injury report before heading to Miami.
