Seahawks Security Jamal Adams recovered in the offseason. Then, on the first day of practice, he broke his finger, stuck in a helmet.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Adams will return to practice with a stick in hand. He will play in a special cast.
Surgery after the season is “likely” according to the report.
Obviously, the device would make it more difficult for Adams to use his arm, reducing the chance of fumble interceptions and returns.
Adams has experience playing with injuries and playing at an intensity that results in more injuries. He missed five games in 2021 and four in 2020.
He only missed two games in his first three seasons. In 2018, he was named All Pro to the first team.
