Updates On Jamal Adams, Jordyn Brooks & Other Injuries From Day 1 Of Seahawks Training Camp

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll provided some injury updates following the first day of training camp.


The Seahawks opened camp with several key players on the physically unable to perform list, including safety Jamal Adams , linebacker Jordyn Brooks, cornerback Riq Woolen and tight end Noah Fant. The good news, however, is that the updates from Pete Carroll were positive on all of those players following the first day of camp.

Adams, who tore his quadriceps tendon in Week 1 last season, and Brooks, who tore his ACL late in the year, are both running and making good progress, but the team is being careful with how they bring them back to practice action.

"They've got their own unique situations, but both guys come in really really good shape," Carroll said. "They're close to being ready. None of us, our side of it, the player side of it, we don't want to push it. We'll get more information here, take our time, judge our way through this thing and make sure we really take care of them, so that's what we're doing… Both of those guys had big recoveries and they both had to work really hard to get here, and they did very well in their physicals and their testing. They're working out, they worked really hard today. They'll be working hard and we'll just take it one day at a time and look after them… They're going to make it back."

Asked if making it back meant the season opener, Carroll said it's too soon to place timelines on it: "It's possible. I'm not counting on that, I'm not even thinking about that now, I just want to get them back and get them right, so whenever that happens, it happens."

Woolen, meanwhile, is coming back from a minor knee surgery performed earlier this offseason and isn't expected to be out long.

"He did very well in all his testing also," Carroll said. "He can run, he can explode, he can change direction, he can do all that stuff. All of those guys can, they all can, but not yet where we know they can keep up the tempo of day-after-day practicing until we get them in shape for that. That's really what we're doing, we're going to make sure to guarantee they're in shape to practice, then we'll know we're ready to move forward."

Fant, who took part in offseason workouts, "had a little work done" on his knee, Carroll said.

"He's in really good shape, he can run full speed, he can do all of this stuff, but we don't want to push him yet," Carroll said. "Just like the other guys, make sure and guarantee that he's back and fully equipped to take on the load and all of that. He's frustrated by not being out there."

In non-injury news, No. 5 overall pick Devon Witherspoon, who is Seattle's only 2023 draft pick not yet under contract, was not present at practice. Carroll said he expects the cornerback's absence to be a brief one, however.

"He knows everything he needs to know, I can't imagine he won't be here very soon," Carroll said.

Football is back! The Seahawks held their first practice of Training Camp on Wednesday, July 26 at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
