Seahawks Get More Bad News on Jamal Adams Injury Update
By Max Staley
The Seattle Seahawks shipped a boatload of assets to the New York Jets in exchange for star safety Jamal Adams. When he's been on the field, he's been worth every penny. Looking at his first two games (he only played 65 percent of the snaps in Week 3), Adams racked up 2.0 sacks, 21 tackles, 4 QB hits and 3 tackles for loss.
Unfortunately, Adams hasn't seen the field since that Week 3 game due to a lingering groin issue. Heading into Week 8, it doesn't look like he's a surefire bet to play after he missed the team's Wednesday practice.
It's looking like Adams is in real danger of missing his fourth straight game. That's a tough break for the Seahawks, because they could really use his services in Week 8.
Adams would present a difficult matchup for San Francisco 49ers' star tight end George Kittle, and he'd be a huge asset in stopping Kyle Shanahan's YAC-based offense. He'd also give this pass-rushing unit a much-needed boost.
Astoundingly, the safety's 2.0 sacks are still tied for the team-high.
Having Adams back for this one would help shore up the Seahawks' struggling defense in a must-win game against the division-rival 49ers.
Seattle is currently a slim 2.5-point home favorite over San Francisco on FanDuel Sportsbook.
