The Seahawks host the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, and it sounds like the status of safety Jamal Adams likely won't be known until gameday.
Adams left Sunday's win over the 49ers with a shoulder injury—he did return for two plays in the fourth quarter—and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said nothing has been decided yet on the Pro-Bowl safety.
"He's going to work through the week and see what he can get done and see if he's OK," Carroll said. "We'll have to wait all the way up to gameday to figure that out."
Carroll was more optimistic on defensive tackle Jarran Reed, who left Sunday's game with an oblique injury, though as of now Reed's status has not yet be determined either.
"We're going to be real careful with him during the week and see how he goes day-to-day," Carroll said. "He's much better than he was on the weekend, so there's cause for optimism there."
Carroll also said the right tackle Brandon Shell, who was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, shouldn't be dealing with the ankle injury that kept him out of four of the previous five games prior to going on the COVID-19 list late last week.
"He looks great, he should be full speed and ready," Carroll said. "We love having him back out there."
Also back and ready to go this week is running back Carlos Hyde, who missed last week's game with a non-COVID-related illness.
"He's ready go," Carroll said. "Fresh legs, he's cranking and ready."
Lastly, Carroll announced at the end of his press conference that rookie defensive end Darrell Taylor will practice Tuesday. Taylor, a second-round pick out of Tennessee, has spent the entire season on the non-football injury list due to a leg injury from college, so this will be his first practice of the season. It would seem highly unlikely that Taylor would play this week, but perhaps if the Seahawks go on a deep run, he could help the pass rush rotation somewhere down the road, or at the very least it would give him a bit of NFL practice experience heading into the offseason.
The year 2020 was challenging in so many ways, but it still provided some incredible moments and memories that will stick with us forever. Take a look back at some of our favorite photos from the past year.
