Jamal Adams of the Seattle Seahawks left the game in the second quarter due to a left knee injury.
Following the 17-16 victory over the Denver Broncos, head coach Pete Carroll described the injury as "serious."
On a third-and-12 from the Denver 45-yard line, Adams was on the verge of sacking Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson.
Adams blitzed from a linebacker position and slipped off Wilson as Wilson threw an incompletion.
Josh Jones took Adams' place at strong safety for the remainder of the game.
This offseason, Adams underwent shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum and fuse two fingers in his hand.
One of those fingers also re-broke during the first practise of training camp, necessitating a follow-up evaluation.
Adams was set to play through the injury again, as he had the previous two seasons.
Jamal Lee Adams is an American football strong safety for the National Football League's Seattle Seahawks.
