Seahawks safety Jamal Adams has been ruled out for the team’s season opener against the visiting Los Angeles Rams, coach Pete Carroll announced Friday on 93.3 KJR in Seattle.

Adams, 27, is recovering from a quad injury sustained during Week 1 of last season. He will not be ready to join his teammates on the field for the game with the Rams on Sept. 10, Carroll said.

“It’s gonna be after the start of the season; we’re not gonna push him,” Carroll said of Adams, who was named a first-team All-Pro in 2019.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Adams has recorded 446 tackles, 21.5 sacks, four interceptions and seven forced fumbles in 71 career games with the New York Jets (2017-19) and Seahawks.
