Jets' Jamal Adams: Missing third straight practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Adams (ankle) won't practice Friday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

It's the third straight practice Adams will sit out, putting him on track to miss Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins. Blake Countess is listed as the next man up on the depth chart at strong safety for the Jets.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Won't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (ankle) will not participate in Thursday's practice, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

Adams is considered week-to-week due to an ankle issue suffered Week 13 against the Bengals, and he's now missed two straight practices. The star safety hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's divisional matchup with Miami, but he's trending in the wrong direction. If Adams is unable to up his level of activity during Friday''s practice, he'll be in danger of missing the first game of his career.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (ankle) will sit out Wednesday's practice, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Adams was initially considered week-to-week after suffering a knee injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Bengals, but it looks like he may miss the first game of his career. "I really think we have to be very smart with this. He's gotta feel really good to be put back out there," coach Adam Gase said, according to Rich Cimini of We'll have a better feeling for his status after Thursday and Friday's practices.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Adams (ankle) is "legit week-to-week" but didn't rule him out for the Week 14 matchup with the Dolphins, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Adams only missed one snap during this past Sunday's loss to the Bengals after admitting he was injured early in the game. The third-year safety was also spotted in a walking boot following the contest. Gase relayed that it's unlikely Adams practices Wednesday, so we'll monitor his status during Thursday and Friday's sessions. If he's unable to play this Sunday, either Blake Countess or Matthias Farley are expected to start in his place.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Sports walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was spotted in a walking boot following Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Bengals, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Adams had an uncharacteristically poor outing, as he logged a season-low one tackle. According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Adams said he was injured early in the contest and battled through it, which may have led to the letdown on the stat line. It'll be worth keeping an eye on Adams' practice status leading up to Week 14's matchup against the suddenly alive Dolphins.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Continues recent surge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded seven tackles (five solo), along with half a sack and three quarterback hits, in Sunday's 34-3 win over Oakland.

Adams has been a key contributor in New York's three-game winning streak, as 5.5 of his 6.5 sacks this season have come in this three-game stretch. The 24-year-old safety is living up to the billing of being selected sixth overall in the 2017 draft, serving as the emotional leader of New York's defense while leading by example on the field.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Dominant in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded four solo tackles and three sacks during Sunday's 34-17 win over the Redskins.

Adams notched a career-high three sacks at the expense of rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins on Sunday, showcasing his monstrous upside as a pass rusher yet again. The 24-year-old now has six sacks in the last three games. He'll look to keep up that momentum Week 12 against the Raiders.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Huge day includes TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams scored a 25-yard fumble return touchdown in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Giants. He also contributed nine tackles (eight solo), two sacks and a pass defensed to round out his best performance of the season.

Adams took the ball right out of Daniel Jones' hands on his touchdown, stripping the quarterback before outracing the entire Giants offense to the end zone. He also set a season high in tackles, and all three of Adams' sacks have come in the past two weeks.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Notches first sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded four solo tackles and one sack during Sunday's 26-18 loss to the Dolphins.

Adams had been held without a sack through the first seven games of the season, but he succeeded in bringing down quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick during Sunday's unfortunate loss. The star safety was evaluated for a concussion late in the fourth quarter, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, but he managed to pass the protocol without any complications. He'll look to bounce back against the Giants in Week 10.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Back to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (foot) returned to a full practice Friday and won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Adams left Thursday's practice early after his foot got stepped on by a teammate, but he was back out there in full Friday. The 24-year-old has yet to miss a game this year and has 39 tackles (31 solo) on the season.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Injures foot in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Friday that Adams had his foot stepped on late in Thursday's practice, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Adams was pulled from Thursday's practice due to the foot injury, resulting in his limited designation. It'll be worth monitoring whether Adams manages to practice in full Friday, but it currently appears that the star safety is on track to play Week 9.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Nursing foot issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was limited in Thursday's practice due to a foot injury.

Adams wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, so his foot injury appears to have been sustained during weekly practices. The 23-year-old safety will have one opportunity to upgrade his level of participation ahead of Sunday's divisional tilt against the Dolphins.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Records nine tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams finished Sunday's win over the Cowboys with nine tackles (seven solo).

The 23-year-old safety added one-and-a-half tackles for loss as part of his nine-tackle performance Sunday. Adams now has 29 tackles in five games and will continue to occupy a key role in the Jets' defense following an 82-snap outing in Week 6.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Takes back INT for TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams had a pick-six in Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Patriots.

The Jets struggled to contain Tom Brady and the Patriots, but Adams' defensive touchdown was a bright spot. This was Adams' first pick-six of his career, and he also had three solo tackles and a pass breakup in this contest. The Jets will head into their bye week at 0-3.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Should be ready Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (hip) was listed as a full participant on Friday's practice estimate and is thus on track to play Monday versus the Browns.

Adams will play a crucial role in the team's defense considering how many pass-catching weapons the Browns have, including former-LSU teammate Odell Beckham. He has solid turnover upside in this outing as well after QB Baker Mayfield threw three interceptions in the season opener.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Sitting out of practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (hip) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Coach Adam Gase said that Adams is dealing with hip soreness. That sounds optimistic for his chances to play Monday versus the Browns, but the team doesn't release its first injury report until Thursday. If Adams is unable to shake this injury in time, however, either Rontez Miles or Matthias Farley will start at strong safety.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Six tackles in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded six tackles (five solo), a pass defensed and a quarterback hit in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Bills.

This was an underwhelming performance by Adams' lofty standards, as New York's defense fell apart in the second half and blew a 16-0 lead. The 23-year-old safety should come out with plenty of fire in Week 2 against the Browns.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Racks up 115 tackles as sophomore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams racked up 11 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Patriots, finishing his season with 115 tackles (86 solo), 3.5 sacks and an interception.

Adams has already evolved into one of the league's surest tacklers at the safety position in just his second season, making him an absolute stud in dynasty formats. Now if the Jets could just add some more talent around him, the team could actually start making some noise instead of toiling away near the bottom of the league standings.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Team-high 10 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded a team-high 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 44-38 loss to Green Bay.

He didn't add any other meaningful statistics besides making some contributions to New York's franchise-worst 172 penalty yards. The Jets have a lot of holes to fill on the roster, but strong safety isn't one of them. Adams now has four games with double-digit tackles this season.

Jets' Jamal Adams: Posts another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams had four tackles (three solo) and a sack in Saturday's 29-22 loss to the Texans.

Adams has been quiet the last two games with six total tackles, but was able to record a third-down sack of Deshaun Watson on Saturday. The 2017 first-round pick has 94 total tackles, 3.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception through 14 games, though his week-to-week production makes him an unreliable IDP play.
