Adams does not need surgery on his right shoulder according to head coach Pete Carroll, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. While Adams is slated to undergo surgery for a torn left labrum, it is confirmed that surgery for his right shoulder isn't necessary. The safety played through multiple injuries this season that he'll spend the majority of his offseason healing from. Adams, who posted 83 tackles (59 solo), 9.5 sacks and a forced fumble in his first Seahawks season, will be healthy by the start of the 2021 season.
Adams will undergo surgeries on his shoulder and finger after the Seahawks were eliminated from the playoffs by the Rams on Saturday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. The 25-year-old has been banged up throughout the season, and he also suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder Week 17 against the 49ers, per Joe Fann of NBC Sports Northwest. Adams had 83 tackles (59 solo), 9.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 12 games this season and is entering the final year of his contract in 2021.
Adams (shoulder/hand) does not carry an injury designation into Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Rams after being listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Adams will fight through pain if he has to, stating Wednesday that he's willing to do "whatever it takes" to suit up against the Rams in what will be the first playoff appearance of his career, per Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. Not only is the three-time Pro Bowl safety contending with a right shoulder injury, according to Henderson, but he is also playing through two broken fingers on his left hand. The 106.3 passer rating Adams has surrendered over 46 targets in coverage this season is far from ideal. However, his 9.5 sacks in 12 appearances are three more than any other Seahawk defender this year.
Adams (shoulder/hand) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Despite a limited tag Wednesday and being called a game-time decision by head coach Pete Carroll, Adams relayed to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle that he's "full-go" and will play in Saturday's wild-card game against the Rams. Adams led the Seahawks with 9.5 sacks over just 12 games this year, adding 83 tackles and three pass breakups as well.
Coach Pete Carroll said Adams (shoulder/hand) is expected to be a game-time decision for Saturday's playoff game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. According to Boyle, the 25-year-old was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report. Carroll initially indicated he expected Adams to be able to play against Los Angeles, but his availability appears to be in question.
