Seahawks safety Jamal Adams has not played since the 2022 season opener. He tore his quadriceps tendon on the 15th play of the Sept. 12, 2022, game against the Broncos.

More than a year later, Adams is ready to return.

Adams is off the injury report and will make his 2023 debut Monday night against the Giants.

The Seahawks also will see the return of cornerback Riq Woolen, who played only 11 plays in Week 2 and missed last week’s game with a chest injury. He also is off the injury report.

It means for the first time, the Seahawks will have Adams, Woolen and first-round pick Devon Witherspoon on the field together.

“We’ve had this image of what it could be and how we could play,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said this week. “I’m not setting expectations off the charts here. I want our guys to get out there and play and come back and help their team. That’s all I’m asking of them. It is exciting.’’

The Seahawks ruled out cornerback Artie Burns (hamstring) and cornerback Tre Brown (concussion). Offensive tackle Charles Cross (toe) and cornerback Cody Bryant (toe) are doubtful.

Defensive end Dre’Mont Jones (hip), linebacker Derick Hall (knee), tight end Noah Fant (knee), center Evan Brown (quadriceps) and tight end Will Dissly (shoulder) are questionable.

Earlier in the day, Giants coach Brian Daboll said that running back Saquon Barkley likely would be a game-time decision with a high-ankle sprain. The official injury designation is less optimistic.

The Giants have made Barkley doubtful for the Monday night game against the Seahawks.

Usually, a player who is listed as doubtful doesn’t play, even though the door remains open.

Barkley suffered the injury in a Week 2 win over the Cardinals. He missed the short-week Thursday night game against the 49ers.

Left tackle Andrew Thomas (hamstring) is officially out for the Giants. No other Giants players have an injury designation.

Giants running back Saquon Barkley has a high-ankle sprain. There’s a chance he’ll be back in action only 15 days after suffering it.

Coach Brian Daboll told reporters on Saturday that Barkley likely will be a game-time decision for Monday night’s visit from the Seahawks, via Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports.

Barkley missed the Thursday night loss to the 49ers to start Week 3. He had 51 rushing yards in the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys, and 92 yards from scrimmage (63 rushing) in Week 2 against the Cardinals.

Daboll announced that left tackle Andrew Thomas will miss the Week 4 game with a hamstring injury. He has not played since the opener.

Seahawks safety Jamal Adams plans to play for the first time in more than a year on Monday night. He once questioned whether he would ever play again.

Adams told reporters that he cried when he found out how serious his torn quadriceps tendon was last year, and seriously considered quitting football entirely.

I thought about retiring,” Adams said, via ESPN. “I thought about a lot of things. Is this going to be it for me? I didn’t know. But I knew eventually, after I got that MRI, I told myself I’m going to be back. I didn’t know when or how, but I was going to figure it out.”

Adams is only 27 years old and was 26 when he suffered the injury last year, but he has had so many injuries since being traded to the Seahawks that he has missed more games than he’s played. Adams said that weighs on him mentally.

“I was having all types of thoughts running through my mind, but at the time when I did tear my knee, that was definitely something I was considering,” Adams said. “I was considering everything at the moment. I was in a dark place. Not on anything suicidal, but definitely in a lot of dark times as far as getting away from the game of football, getting away from people. At the time I wasn’t really talking to many people, wasn’t answering my phone. So you go through real life situations in this game of football.”

Adams is eager to get on the field on Monday night.

“I haven’t hit anybody in a long time,” he said. “I’m looking forward to it, man, I’ll tell you that. I won’t take a play for granted. I won’t take a moment or a second for granted.”

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll returns to New York on Monday night. It’s a place where he has some bad memories, along with one very good one.

Carroll was the head coach of the Jets for one year, in 1994. In February 2014, he won the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium.

“We had a nice night there,” Carroll told reporters on Thursday. “That’s something that these guys don’t know. There’s only a couple of guys that would even relate to that. Just the staff, we’ve been there before and it’s fun to go back kind of coming off last week with our guys all around and all of that.”

He’s referring to the 10-year anniversary of the Super Bowl victory. The 2013 team was recognized at halftime of Sunday’s game against the Panthers.

And he seems to have no hard feelings about his short stint as the man in charge of the Jets.

“Like anyone that’s ever coached there or worked there in New York, and you’ve been there long enough where you’ve got the feeling of what it’s all about, it’s an extraordinary place,” Carroll said. “It’s an extraordinary memory to be part of that. To have had a chance to be on top of it for a short while, a matter of months, it’s significant to represent that town. It’s an amazing place. It’s fun to go back and see it again.”

The flight home will be a lot more fun if they win and move to 3-1. With the 49ers looking elite, the Seahawks need to rack up wins against other wild-card contenders, like the Giants.

Geno Smith’s success as the Seahawks starting quarterback was a heartwarming storyline last season given how long Smith had been waiting for his second chance to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.

The first chance went up in smoke in August 2015 when Smith got punched in the face by IK Enemkpali in the Jets locker room because he owed the defensive player money. Smith broke his jaw, which allowed Ryan Fitzpatrick to take over as the Jets quarterback and sent Smith down the path of being a backup quarterback until he got his opportunity in Seattle last year.

Smith will be back at MetLife Stadium on Monday to face the Giants and one of the players tasked with stopping him was in the locker room on that fateful day in 2015. Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams said that he’s happy to see Smith looking “comfortable and confident” leading the Seahawks given what happened when they were teammates.

“It’s awesome to see,” Williams said, via Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post. “Because when I first came in the league he was the starting quarterback for the Jets, and it was a crazy eye-opener for me to see he got punched by a linebacker in the locker room and I was just like a rookie seeing this and was just like, ‘Whoa.’ . . . Since that moment, he kind of got his opportunity taken away from him and he was trying to climb back. It’s really cool to see him in a system that’s working well for him.”

The Giants defense has gotten off to a rocky start this season, so seeing Williams and company knock Smith out of his comfort zone would be a good development for them if not for the quarterback’s story arc.

Giants head coach Brian Daboll said before Thursday’s practice that running back Saquon Barkley would do individual drills as he works to get back from an ankle injury and the team’s injruy report shows that he did exactly that.

Barkley is listed as a limited participant on the team’s first report ahead of Monday’s home game against the Seahawks. He was injured in Week Two and did not play in last Thursday’s loss to the 49ers.

Left tackle Andrew Thomas missed both of those games with a hamstring injury, but he was able to join Barkley in the limited category. Tight end Daniel Bellinger (neck), defensive lineman D.J. Davidson (elbow), and edge rusher Azeez Ojulari (hamstring) were also limited on Thursday.

Left guard Ben Bredeson (concussion) was a full participant and appears on track to play after missing last Thursday.

Linebacker Jon Rhattigan joined the Seahawks on a temporary basis for each of their first three games this season and they’re making a more lasting arrangement with him this week.

The Seahawks announced that they have signed Rhattigan off of their practice squad on Thursday. He fills the roster spot the team opened by waiving wide receiver Cody Thompson on Wednesday.

Rhattigan has been a regular on special teams the first three weeks of the season, but has not played a defensive snap. That was also the case during Rhattigan’s 19 appearances for Seattle over the last two seasons.

Rhattigan has 16 tackles and a fumble recovery in those appearances.

Saquon Barkley is getting back on the field.

Via multiple reporters, head coach Brian Daboll said in his Thursday press conference that Barkley will do individual drills in the day’s practice and the team will see how he feels.

Barkley suffered an ankle sprain against the Cardinals in Week 2 and did not play last week in the Giants’ loss to the 49ers on Thursday night. While New York conducted walk-throughs during the short week, Barkley was listed as a non-participant on all three practice reports.

The Giants have even more extra time than normal coming off last Thursday’s game as they’ll host the Seahawks on Monday night.

Barkley has rushed for 114 yards on 29 carries with a touchdown and caught nine passes for 41 yards with a TD in two games so far this year.
