Seahawks S Jamal Adams Suffers Quadriceps Injury

12:06pm: Carroll indicated that Adams will need to “get some work done” as a result of the injury (Twitter link via NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero). Carroll also said, “I know it’s serious and it just breaks your heart,” pointing to a lengthy (if not season-ending) absence for the safety.

11:11am: The Seahawks’ surprise victory last night appears to have come at a significant cost. Safety Jamal Adams suffered a quadriceps injury in the second quarter which led to him being carted off the field. 

“His quadricep tendon I think got damaged some tonight,” head coach Pete Carroll said after the game, via ESPN’s Brady Henderson“He got hurt. So it’s a serious injury.”

Adams has yet to play a full season since being traded to Seattle by the Jets in the 2020 offseason. A groin injury limited him to 12 games played in his first Seahawks season, one in which he earned a third straight Pro Bowl nod with 9.5 sacks. That performance was an encouraging sign for himself and the team, after Adams signed a four-year, $70MM deal which was a record for safeties at the time upon his arrival in the Emerald City.

The 2021 campaign was much different in terms of production, though. Adams failed to record a sack for the first time in his career, as his defensive responsibilities were altered. He did manage a pair of interceptions, but was once again sidelined by an injury. The second shoulder injury Adams suffered in the span of less than one calendar year ended his campaign in December.

Between that point and the beginning of the 2022 regular season, the former sixth overall pick also underwent finger surgeries, adding to his total number of ailments. If this latest injury is indeed serious, it would represent another blow to his Seahawks tenure, and leave the team without its highest-paid defender. Adams and Quandre Diggs – who inked a three-year, $40MM contract this offseason – were in line to operate as the anchors of Seattle’s secondary, one which includes a number of new faces at cornerback.

Josh Jones took over for Adams following the injury, and made seven total tackles during last night’s game. The 27-year-old journeyman was a second-round pick of the Packers, but also spent time with the Cowboys, Jaguars and Colts before joining the Seahawks last season. He has 26 starts to his name, a total which could stand to increase if Adams misses significant time.

Colts Place C Ryan Kelly On COVID-19 List

One of the Colts’ cornerstone players will be sidelined for their Week 13 game against the Texans. Ryan Kelly is now on Indianapolis’ reserve/COVID-19 list.

The Colts had previously seen every other offensive line starter miss time this season, with injuries intervening at various points for the acclaimed group. Kelly, however, had been Indy’s rock here. The former first-round pick had started each of the Colts’ 12 contests this season.

The rest of the Colts’ offensive front is currently healthy, and the Colts’ Week 14 bye points to Kelly missing just one game because of this development. While Kelly missed time in 2017 and ’18, he has only missed one game over the past three seasons. During that time, the Colts’ O-line has become one of the NFL’s best. Kelly made the Pro Bowl in 2019 and last season. This year, Jonathan Taylor has amassed a significant lead in rushing yards behind that group. Taylor’s 1,205 yards lead the league; Derrick Henry still sits second at 937.

Additionally, the Colts activated Khari Willis off IR and waived safety Josh Jones. A second-year safety starter, Willis has missed the past four games. The Colts had played without both safety starters in November, with Julian Blackmon having torn his Achilles early this season.

Colts Activate DL Dayo Odeyingbo From NFI List, Waive RB Jordan Wilkins

Dayo Odeyingbo suffered a torn Achilles in January but still managed to become a second-round pick. The Colts rookie appears set to make his NFL debut less than eight months later.

The Colts activated Odeyingbo from their non-football injury list Saturday, introducing the prospect of its top two draft picks playing together on the defensive line early. A Vanderbilt product viewed as a player who can line up at both defensive end and D-tackle, Odeyingbo went down while training for the draft. Like Titans defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons in 2019, Odeyingbo is set to see rookie-year action after suffering a major injury during the winter.

Indianapolis selected defensive end Kwity Paye in the first round and followed that up by selecting Odeyingbo in Round 2. The team let Denico Autry defect to Tennessee in free agency and did not re-sign Justin Houston. The Paye-Odeyingbo pair represents the Colts’ hopeful replacements. Odeyingbo, who goes 6-foot-6 and 276 pounds, recorded 12 tackles for loss as a junior with the Commodores and added 5.5 sacks as a senior. Paye has yet to record a sack in four-plus games played this season but has recovered two fumbles.

Among the other roster moves the Colts made before this afternoon’s Week 8 deadline, the team cut running back Jordan Wilkins. A 2018 draftee, Wilkins has backed up Marlon Mack and then Jonathan Taylor for more than three seasons. But fellow 2018 pick Nyheim Hines‘ passing-down and special teams ability won out, moving Hines higher on the depth chart and leading to an extension. Wilkins still saw sporadic time in the backfield from 2018-20 and resides as an interesting waiver option.

Wilkins averaged 5.6 yards per carry as a rookie and 6.0 per tote in 2019, seeing increased time when Mack missed games with injuries. The former fifth-round pick was not as efficient last season (3.7 per carry on a career-high 84 handoffs) and has not received a carry this year. Still, with the Colts previously placing Mack on the trade block, this Wilkins cut is an interesting decision.

The Colts promoted running back Deon Jackson and safety Josh Jones to their active roster and activated linebacker Jordan Glasgow from IR. Indianapolis also waived defensive tackle Khalil Davis.
