Safety Jamal Adams made his season debut for the Seattle Seahawks on Monday evening against the New York Giants, but it was short-lived.

Early in the first quarter, Adams was inadvertently kneed in the head by Giants quarterback Daniel Jones as Jones was attempting to elude a tackle.

The independent concussion spotter called down from the booth and had Adams taken to the locker room with signs of a concussion, a decision Adams was none too pleased about.

After going to the locker room for testing, Adams was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

It’s been a frustrating couple of years for Adams, as he tore his quadriceps in the first week of the 2022 season, costing him the entire year. Adams’ 2021 season also ended prematurely after a torn labrum in Week 13.

Originally drafted sixth overall by the Jets in the 2017 draft, Adams played in New York for three seasons, being named to the All-Pro first team in 2019, before requesting a trade and being dealt to Seattle for a pair of first-round picks. Adams’ first year in Seattle was remarkable, as he set the NFL single-season sack record for defensive backs with 9.5

Adams’ injury comes at a time when Seattle is already without multiple other players in the secondary, as cornerbacks Artie Burns, Coby Bryant, and Tre Brown all missed the game with injuries.
