Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams was apparently playing at less than 100 percent for his playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams earlier this month.
Adams could not extend his left arm to his normal range a week before the team’s regular season finale against the San Francisco 49ers due to a torn ligament in his shoulder. Adams was the only injury away this season and he underwent surgery last week to address two areas of concern from the year’s wear and tear.
Adams posted on her Instagram account about injuries suffered in her first season in Seattle.
“I didn’t complain at all (season) because it was bigger than me, “Adams wrote on a photo of himself from surgery via Brady Henderson of ESPN.com.
Adams said he hyper-extended his elbow Week 1 against Atlanta. The following week when he injured his middle and ring finger, including at least one fracture that lasted all year. A serious injury in Week 3 against Dallas forced him to lose the next four matches. He dislocated his right shoulder in the first meeting against the Rams and patted Labrum in his left shoulder against the 49ers.
“Last week I had two surgeries at the same time,” he continued. “All I say is to say this, keep the same F-energy for the next F when I’m healthy. All of you are on my list.”
Despite injuries and missing four games, Adams still holds the record for the most sacks by a defensive back with 9.5 and was named a Pro Bowl and a second-team All-Pro.
