Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams may have escaped the worst-case scenario because of his broken finger injury.
According to Gregg Bell of the News Tribune, despite breaking the middle finger of his left hand during training, Adams will not need surgery for the injury.
“A federation source with knowledge of the situation told The News Tribune on Saturday, Adams returned this weekend from seeing a hand specialist in Dallas,” Bell said on Saturday. , July 30. “He is expected to rejoin the team in training camp when Seattle practices again on Monday, after a day off for the players. “
Like Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times noted on Monday, August 1, that Adams was fully engaged in the practice.
“Adams seems to be a full participant today,” said Condotta. “So in the end only missed two practices.”
Adams has a deep history of finger injuries
Adams broke his middle finger during practice last Wednesday. As reported by Adam Jude of The Seattle Times, the former All-Pro safe suffered a “strange accident” injury when he accidentally got his finger caught in a teammate’s mask during practice.
“Just a weird accident,” the source said. “It will be fine.”
The 26-year-old safety player has a history of injury problems with his hand, having fused his fingers this season.
“I will never be able to bend them completely. But that’s what it is. It’s for the love of the game,” Adams said in June. “I’ve been through that for two years now. The first year I came here, I dislocated my ring finger maybe about 10 times and the other maybe about 12 times, so I had to deal with that. “
Adams has faced severe injuries since he was bought for the first two draft picks plus Bradley McDougald started safely from the New York Jets in the 2020 season. The safety veteran missed out. four games in 2020 because of a groin injury. He also missed four games at the end of the 2021 season due to a holster tear.
The fact that the Seahawks signed Adams to a safety record deal with $38 million guaranteed in 2021 didn’t help either.
Considering the Seahawks could move in from Adams after the 2023 season – he could be cut with just $14.2 million in cap money – the next two seasons will likely determine his future with the team. .

Seahawks don’t care about Adams pick system
With the Seahawks switching to a 3-4 defense with new defensive coordinator Clint Hurtt in the mix, some expect a learning opportunity. For Adams – who missed out on some boot camp practice – there could be an even steeper learning curve.
However, Hurtt revealed on Saturday that he is not in the least concerned about whether Adams can continue the defense after his most recent injury defeat.
“No, it doesn’t matter,” Hurtt said. “He studied very, very well. When he came back here in his youth, he picked it up, like that. So there is no problem at all.”
