After Monday night’s game against the Denver Broncos, coach Pete Carroll announced that star safety Jamal Adams had been seriously injured on his quad.

After stumbling to the medical tent in apparent distress, Adams was taken to the locker room in a medical car and did not return.

Bystanders noted that Adams was visibly upset and at one point burst into frustration when he was herded into the locker room.

Some speculated that Carroll’s comments meant that Adams had torn his quadriceps, which would take at least four to six weeks to recover.

Carroll instead told Seattle Sports 710-AM that it was basically a left knee injury that would keep Adams out of action for an extended period of time as he provided an update on Tuesday.

“Yeah, he’s hurt,” Carroll said. “He hurt his knee and he will have to work on that. I don’t know the extent of it yet, but I know it’s serious. It just breaks your heart. He loves the game so much. We’re going to miss him so much.’

Adams has battled injuries during his three years in Seattle, but has remained one of the team’s heartbeats when he was actually on the field.

“The fact that he’s such a heartthrob in football, he loves to play and he just can’t handle it right now about ‘how could this keep happening?'” Carroll said on his radio show.

“It was good that he had his mum and dad in the dressing room during the game when he was there to help him through it a bit and stuff, but it was really hard. So I hope everyone sends him love.’

While it has not yet been announced what the exact injury is or how long Adams will be out, Carroll had insisted it was “serious.”

This latest injury will also be a long way from Adams’ debut season in Seattle, where he set the NFL record for a defensive back with 9.5 sacks, earning him his third Pro Bowl nod in a row.
