'Serious' knee injury suffered by Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams to require 'some work,' coach Pete Carroll says

Adams was carted off the field in the second quarter of Seattle's season opening 17-16 victory over the Denver Broncos after he was hurt while blitzing former teammate Russell Wilson.

Adams limped off the field in obvious pain, heavily favoring his left  leg, after delivering pressure and a hit on Wilson that helped force a  third-down incompletion.

Adams had three tackles and defended a pass before his injury. Josh Jones replaced him for the rest of the game.

Adams missed time early in training camp this summer after rebreaking  the middle finger on his left hand, another injury he has dealt with in  the past.

Adams and the Seahawks were hoping that Seattle's new defense -- with  its emphasis on split-safety looks -- would put him in position for a  bounce-back

The Seahawks acquired Adams from the Jets in 2020 for a package that included first-round picks in 2021 and 2022
