The Seattle Seahawks training camp is well underway as the team prepares for its first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, Aug. 13. Unfortunately, some Seahawks players have gotten banged up at practice, including safety Jamal Adams and wideout Dee Eskridge.

Head coach Pete Carroll shared injury updates on both players Friday night, shedding some light on when Seahawks fans could expect to see Adams and Eskridge this preseason.

Jamal Adams Injury Update

Adams suffered a broken finger during practice last week, which was alarming considering that he has a history of significant finger-related injuries. He's had to wear a cast on his finger but has still been able to participate at training camp since Monday.

Carroll told reporters that the team is unsure about how long Adams must wear the cast, citing that the three-time Pro-Bowl safety is "frustrated" by the situation. Nevertheless, he's doing fine and is expected to make a full recovery barring any unforeseen setbacks.

The 2021 season was the first time since he was a rookie that Adams wasn't named to the Pro Bowl or either All-Pro team. He suited up in 12 games for the Seahawks, recording 87 total tackles, five broken-up passes and a pair of interceptions.

Dee Eskridge Injury Update

Meanwhile, Eskridge has been hampered by a hamstring injury since June's organized team activities. Though he hasn't participated much in training camp, Carroll said that the sophomore pass-catcher is "really getting close" to handling a bigger workload.

However, Carroll added that it might be an unrealistic goal for Eskridge to play in the preseason opener. If anything, it's more likely that he potentially suits up against the Chicago Bears on Thursday, Aug. 18.

A former 2021 second-round pick, Eskridge failed to meet expectations as a rookie. He only caught 10 balls for 64 yards and a touchdown over 10 games. Hopefully, he's able to be the player that the Seahawks thought he could be once he finally puts his hamstring woes behind him.
