Last weekend, the Seattle Seahawks were able to get a satisfying victory over the Denver Broncos, who were led by former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, but it appears that they lost a huge part of their defense in the process.
Star safety Jamal Adams was injured in the second quarter of Monday’s game when attempting to sack Wilson in the second quarter. Right away it looked like a very serious injury. He was able to limp off the field initially but was later carted back to the locker room with what Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll suspected was a “serious knee injury” to his quad.
We now know that those suspicions were correct, and Adams is set to have season-ending surgery to repair his torn quadricep tendon, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Injuries have become an unfortunate trend in Adams’ career, causing him to miss significant time over each of the past two seasons now.
Many around the NFL world are wishing him a full recovery while he is sidelined for the Seahawks this season.
Jamal Adams missed just two games in three seasons with the Jets.
After this year is over, he'll have missed 25 games in three seasons with the Seahawks.
Brutal injury luck. I feel awful for him. https://t.co/nNMxvXBgm1

Seattle will surely miss his production on the field considering the veteran safety has made the Pro Bowl in three out of the six NFL seasons so far. Game-planning for their second matchup of the season against the San Francisco 49ers will now be even more difficult for the Seahawks and the 49ers will likely be coming out swinging after a shocking loss to the Chicago Bears in their first game.
