The Seattle Seahawks found themselves in the news after their Monday Night Football win over the New York Giants.
However, this type of publicity wasn’t necessarily what they had hoped.
Jamal Adams was seen yelling at someone on their sideline, which was later revealed to be an independent concussion doctor.
He received significant criticism for this outburst, and many believed he would be fined for his actions.

While a fine hasn’t yet been issued, Adams took to Twitter to apologize for what happened.

In this note, Adams applauded the doctor’s patience, recognizing that “I wasn’t myself in that moment.”
He added, “Prioitizing player’s health is essential,” and, “Much respect to you!”
Adams is one of the Seahawks’ top defenders, and he, like his NFL counterparts, hates when he has to miss games due to injury.
His immediate response was seen as over the top, but he has tried to rectify the situation with this apology.
Concussions can cause people to act differently than they normally are.
While many were quick to call out Adams’ actions, others have been more understanding and patient with him, knowing the effects of concussions.
He is still in the concussion protocol and has not yet been cleared to return to action, a potentially difficult pill for Adams to swallow.
Thankfully for Adams and the Seahawks, Week 5 is a bye week for the team.
He has an extra week to get the proper treatment and rest, hoping to be active for the Seahawks’ next game against the Cincinnati Bengals.NEXT: Pete Carroll Gives An Injury Update On Jamal Adams
