The fun lasted less than a week for fans of the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks, of course, opened the 2022 NFL season with an exhilarating win over the Russell Wilson-led Denver Broncos.

Wilson’s replacement, Geno Smith, dazzled Seattle fans and stole the show before Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett took the spotlight right back with a mind-numbing decision to kick a 64-yard field goal with 20 seconds left on the clock.

Hackett has since walked back that decision. But the Seahawks won’t be giving back the victory, especially not head coach Pete Carroll.

But not everything went Seattle’s way during the game. Seahawks Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams limped off the field late in the first quarter after trying to track down Wilson on a blitz.

Adams did not return to the ball game and was later to revealed to have suffered a quadriceps injury. Carroll said Wednesday that Adams would seek additional opinions on the injury before making any decision.

Those opinions don’t appear to have been positive.

Jamal Adams To Have Surgery On Torn Quad, Miss Entire 2022 Season

NFL Network reporter Ian Rappaport announced Thursday afternoon that Adams would undergo season-ending surgery on his torn quadriceps.

The injury is a devastating blow to both the 26-year-old three-time Pro Bowler and the Seahawks. Adams appeared in just 12 games in 2021, but he racked up 87 tackles to go along with a pair of interceptions.

He’s a huge part of a defense that allowed just 21.5 points per game, which ranked ninth in the NFL. Adams’ 87 tackles ranked fourth on the team.

Seahawks fans were devastated by the news.

Seattle acquired Adams from the Jets via a blockbuster trade in 2020 that sent two first-round picks and a third-round pick back to New York. Adams missed just two games in three seasons with the Jets. But after the latest injury, he’s set to have missed 25 games in three seasons with the Seahawks.
