On Friday, it was revealed by Seattle Times reporter Adam Jude that Adams broke his left middle finger on one of the final plays of Wednesday’s practice when the finger got stuck in a teammate’s facemask. That finger being injured is notable as that’s one of two fingers Adams’ had offseason fusion surgery on.
Per Jude’s report, the injury was described as a “freak” accident and that Adams will not miss any games because of it. The regular season is still over a month away, as Seattle’s Week 1 game is Monday, Sept. 12 against the Denver Broncos and former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Additionally, Seattle’s first preseason game isn’t until Aug. 13 in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.
More details emerged regarding Adams’ injury later on Friday, with NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reporting that Adams is expected to return to practice soon and when he does, he will be wearing a club over that left hand and injured finger. Additionally, Adams will reportedly wear “a special cast” on his left hand for games. Adams will likely need surgery on that hand and finger once again, Rapoport said, but that any procedure won’t be planned for until next offseason.
Adams, 26, is a three-time All-Pro who is entering his third year in Seattle. He’s played 24 regular season games between 2020 and 2021 due to groin and shoulder injuries, and set a single-season record for sacks by a defensive back in 2020 with 9.5. Adams is signed through the 2025 after signing an extension last offseason.
The Seahawks acquired Adams and a 2022 fourth-round pick from the New York Jets in 2020 for safety Bradley McDougald, first-round picks in 2021 and 2022, as well as a 2021 third-round pick.
The deal has officially concluded as all picks from that trade have been made. All in all, the Seahawks acquired Adams – and gave him a record-setting four-year extension – and cornerback Coby Bryant while the Jets used their picks on guard Alijah Vera-Tucker and wide receiver Garrett Wilson. The Jets used both of their two 2021 picks from Seattle to trade up for Vera-Tucker.
