It’s going to be awhile before Jamal Adams cuts his own strawberries again.
After showing up Tuesday with a ginormous wrap over his left hand and sitting out Wednesday’s scrimmage, we finally found out the culprit of Adams’ mystery injury: Strawberries.
When discussing the All-Pro safety’s “domestic accident” in the kitchen, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll divulged that Adams sliced his finger while cutting some strawberries and had to have some stitches.
“It’s a very minor situation,” Carroll said. “Easy for me to say... He almost cut his finger off.”
Carroll said the Seahawks kept Adams out of Wednesday’s mock game, so he wouldn’t “have to use that thing,” but didn’t deliver a timeline for the 24-year-old’s return.
Adams was in full pads for the scrimmage but wore a bulky wrap over his left hand. The Seahawks will likely have to wait for the stitches to be removed for Adams to return to the field in full capacity.

The good news is Adams’ injury hasn’t stopped him from tweeting. The two-time Pro Bowler was very vocal on social media Wednesday following the events of the NBA boycotts.
The outspoken safety continued using his platform on Thursday to urge white athletes to become allies in this transformational movement.
Seahawks players have a day off on Thursday but will return to the VMAC for practice on Friday.
