Seahawks star Jamal Adams out for the season with torn labrum

The Seattle Seahawks finally got back into the win column in Week 13 action after edging out NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers.

However, the win came at a steep cost as star safety Jamal Adams suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder that will require season-ending surgery, according to ESPN.

Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams needs season-ending surgery for a torn labrum in his left shoulder, a source confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday.

Adams suffered the injury in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Head coach Pete Carroll initially classified the injury as a “sprain.” The 26-year-old played through a left labrum injury last season before undergoing offseason surgery.

He struggled to find his footing in the 2021 campaign, failing to register a sack after setting the NFL record for a defensive back with 9.5 in 12 games last season. Through Week 13, Adams recorded 87 total tackles with four tackles for a loss.

Although Adams provided consistent production, his play has yet to match up to the hefty trade that the Seahawks took to acquire him. Seattle needed to part ways with two first-round draft picks to acquire him.

LSU product previously inked a four-year, $70 million extension that runs through the 2025 season. The Seahawks can out from the deal after the 2023 campaign as he holds only an $8 million dead-cap hit. The final year of the contract possesses only a $4 million dead-cap hit.

With Adams out, Ryan Neal will assume his spot in the starting lineup.
