Jamal Adams shares two cents on perceived dirty hit on Seahawks teammate Chris Carson
Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams has come to the defense of fellow teammate and running back Chris Carson.
Carson was injured following a tackle by Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Trysten Hill. After completing the tackle, Hill evidently made a rolling maneuver on the turf with Carson’s leg locked, causing a first-degree knee sprain.
“Yeah, that was some BS I ain’t gonna lie, bro,” said Adams appearing on Uninterrupted’s 17 Weeks podcast. “I get a gator roll, but once you gator roll, he’s on the ground, let go. You don’t gotta keep on going. It just didn’t make sense and obviously I’m gonna fight for my teammate. Chris is a hell of a guy. I don’t know why [Hill] would do that, what he was thinking.
Carson was having a decent season prior to the skeptical injury. He’d rushed for 157 yards off of 37 carries through his first three games this season. Though he hadn’t rushed for any touchdowns, he’s proven useful in pass-catching with three touchdowns through Week 3 as well. He went down with the injury late in the fourth quarter of the Seahawks Week 3 bout against the Cowboys.
“I mean, he was down on the ground, then after he twisted his leg there was another guy that came and kinda jumped on him,” Adams continued. “It was just unnecessary, man. I’m all for playing hard and I’m all for trying to get these big hits or make a tackle. I’m a defensive player, I get it, but let’s keep it clean, man. I wonder how much he’s going to get fined for that, you know?
