Pete Carroll’s Wednesday press conference brought about more good news, after the Seahawks acquired Carlos Dunlap earlier in the day. Per Carroll, superstar safety Jamal Adams was set to return to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday.
Seattle’s initial injury report for Week 8, issued after Wednesday’s practice, listed Adams as a non-participant. In addition to a groin injury, which has kept Adams out since Week 3, he was also listed with an illness.

Though Carroll did not provide an explanation for Adams’ absence when he met with media for a second time later on Wednesday, the hope must be that it was a result of the illness rather than his groin injury.
Earlier in the week, Carroll had said Adams was progressing well and getting close enough to a return that the team would know late in the week whether he could play on Sunday against the 49ers or not. While Adams’ week began without practicing, Thursday could see a return for the safety—even if it’s on a limited basis.
