Of the many awful things about the Seattle Seahawks’ wild card exit versus the Los Angeles Rams, Jamal Adams didn’t look anywhere near the outstanding All-Pro level safety we saw in the Week 16 win, and we know why.
Adams was a question mark throughout the week due to a left shoulder injury he suffered against the San Francisco 49ers. He’d already been dealing with two broken fingers, and now it’s been revealed that Adams actually had a torn labrum.
Jamal Adams will need surgery to repair the torn labrum that he played through on Saturday. He'll also have surgery on his two broken fingers.— Joe Fann (@Joe_Fann) January 10, 2021
Talk about playing through pain. He gutted it out and I know he didn’t want to miss his first playoff game, but you could tell he was not his usual self and Seattle’s defense was certainly damaged from a schematic standpoint as a result. Adams had some missed tackles and wasn’t blitzed as often as we’ve seen in previous weeks.
Ryan Neal really should’ve gotten a lot of his snaps, in my opinion. This became the Quinton Dunbar vs. Buffalo Bills situation all over again and it was awful to see.
Here’s to Adams making a full recovery for both surgeries as the Seahawks enter the offseason early once more.
