Jamal Adams in but Kenny McIntosh still out
Kenny McIntosh, please come back! After a brilliant training camp and just ahead of preseason Week 1, McIntosh hurt his leg in the team's mock game. He hasn't been heard from since. According to Pete Carroll this week, McIntosh won't practice or (obviously) play this week. The shame is that McIntosh was showing explosiveness in practice and proved he could be a three-down back if given the chance as he can run and catch.
But McIntosh seems more likely to miss the entire season than play. Seattle is so far fairly deep at running back and as long as Kenneth Walker and Zach Charbonnet stay healthy then McIntosh isn't needed. Perhaps he could sit out this year, get healthy, see what happens with DeeJay Dallas after the season (Dallas will be a free agent in 2024), and then make his case to be RB3.
Of course, in better news, Jamal Adams seems ready to come back once again. After making a brief appearance in Week 4 before he suffered a concussion, Adams is expected to be fully healthy for Week 6. He did have 2 tackles and a QB hurry in just nine snaps against the New York Giants and that's while Adams was having to shake off some rust.
Once Jamal Adams gets his full bearings he is going to disrupt opposing teams. That's just what he does and what the Seahawks need him to do. He is very likely to help Seattle's pass rush and keep them more consistently aggressive. But that might just be with Adams being a hybrid linebacker/safety and that's OK.
