The Seahawks placed Pro-Bowl safety Jamal Adams on injured reserve Thursday, a move that seemed likely from the moment that Pete Carroll said Adams had a serious knee injury following Monday night's win over Denver.
To fill the open spot on the roster, the Seahawks signed safety Teez Tabor off Atlanta's practice squad.
Adams injured his quadriceps tendon early in Seattle's season-opening win, marking the third straight season with the Seahawks he has dealt with injuries, including two shoulder injuries that required surgery, and multiple dislocated fingers that led to offseason surgery to get two fingers fused. Adams missed just two games in his first three seasons with the Jets prior to the trade to Seattle, making his current injury luck all the more frustrating for such a passionate player.
"It means so much to him," Carroll said. "The frustration of having to go through not being healthy just jumped at him again. He's questioning and wondering because he wants to be out here so much. He wants to be with the guys and doing what we do in every way you could possibly want to do that. It's really frustrating for him."
Tabor, a second-round pick out of Florida in 2017, has appeared in 28 games with six career starts for the Lions and Bears, including six games and one start last year in Chicago where he worked with then defensive coordinator and current Seahawks associate head coach-defense Sean Desai. Tabor also spent time on San Francisco's practice squad in 2019, and with the Falcons this year.
