Jamal Adams leaves MNF vs. Giants due to concussion
Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams was ruled out of Monday night’s game against the New York Giants due to a concussion.
The 27-year-old suffered the ailment in the first quarter when Daniel Jones‘ knee hit him in the head during a low tackle. He left for the locker room to be evaluated and didn’t return.
Adams was frustrated on the sideline after being taken into the medical tent.
Jamal Adams was barking at the red hat (unaffiliated neuotrauma consultant) after being in the medical tent. Was going at him the whole time that play was happening just now. Now being taken to the #Seahawks’ locker room.

Head coach Pete Carroll said postgame that the three-time Pro Bowler should be OK to get back on the field following Seattle’s Week 5 bye, according to team reporter John Boyle.
This was Adams’ first game in 13 months after he tore his quad in Week 1 of the 2022 season. The LSU product has battled injuries throughout his career, including a pair of labrum tears.
Seattle acquired Adams from the Jets in a trade before the 2020 season. He signed a four-year, $70-million deal with the team in 2021.
