Jamal Adams says he's a 'full go' on Saturday vs. Rams despite shoulder injury


Jamal Adams delivered good news to Seahawks fans on Wednesday, confirming that he will be on the field on Saturday against the Rams in the Wild Card Round of the NFL playoffs.

"No question in my mind, I'm playing," Adams said emphatically. "As long as these legs are moving, as long as my faith is with the man upstairs, which is very strong, imma be out there. There wasn't a doubt in my mind. Let's get that out there, I'm full go."

Adams injured his shoulder in the fourth quarter last weekend against the 49ers on a blitz. Jerick McKinnon chipped Adams in pass protection and clearly caught the safety's shoulder awkwardly.

Seattle's superstar safety will play on Saturday with a harness on the injured shoulder. That makes two injured shoulders and two broken fingers that Adams will be playing through.

"It's just another challenge," Adams said. "I'm a savage, bro, I'm a warrior. It doesn't matter."

Adams was visibly emotional on the Seahawks sideline in the final moments of Seattle's win against San Francisco. Pete Carroll shared on Monday that Adams remained emotional after the game. The safety explained that his frustration stemmed from not being able to finish the game with his teammates.

The injury bug bit Adams early and often this season as he previously missed four games due to a groin strain. He still managed to set the NFL's single-season sack record by a defensive back with 9.5 in just 12 games.

"I'm not going to be limited to anything," Adams said. "I'm full go, full energy. I'm going to be me. I'm going out there to continue to make plays and continue to help the team win."


Saturday will be Adams' first-career playoff game. For Seattle, the game serves as a rubber match against their division rival as the teams split the two regular season contests.

"We know them and they know us," Adams said. "That's what makes this matchup very special. There's going to be trash talking, a lot of hard-hitting, a lot of big plays and hopefully it's more on our side."
