The Seahawks opened training camp Wednesday with six players, including safety Jamal Adams and linebacker Jordyn Brooks, on the physically unable to perform list.
With training camp opening Wednesday, the Seahawks placed six players on the active/physically unable to perform list: safety Jamal Adams, linebacker Jordyn Brooks, tight end Noah Fant, nose tackle Austin Faoliu, nose tackle Bryan Mone and cornerback Riq Woolen.
Additionally, nose tackle Jonah Tavai was placed on the active/non-football injury list.
Brooks, Adams and Mone are all coming back from significant surgeries following injuries that ended their 2022 seasons, Adams a torn quadriceps tendon and Brooks and Mone torn ACLs. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expressed optimism during the offseason that Brooks and Adams have a shot to be ready for the season opener, while Mone will likely miss time during the season. Woolen, meanwhile, had knee surgery during offseason workouts for a less serious injury and was expected to make a quick return—Carroll called it a four-to-six week recovery at the time—so his stay on the PUP list could be brief.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is scheduled to meet with the media following Wednesday's practice so more details on those and other injuries should be available then.
With players on the PUP list, it's worth remembering that prior to the start of the regular season, they can return to practice at any time, so teams tend to err on the side of caution at the start of camp. If, however, players remain on the PUP list after the cutdown to 53 players, they must miss at least the first four games of the season. Players on the active/PUP list do count towards the 90-man roster limit.
Seahawks players returned to the Virginia Mason Athletic Center on July 25, 2023 for the beginning of Training Camp.
