NFL won’t punish Seahawks’ Jamal Adams for sideline interaction with concussion doctor

The NFL will not discipline Jamal Adams of the Seattle Seahawks for his interaction with a league-appointed independent concussion doctor during Monday night’s win over the New York Giants, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.


Adams returned to the Seahawks’ lineup after missing 20 games due to a quadriceps tear. But after the first possession, he left the field after taking a Daniel Jones knee to the helmet. He was evaluated on the sideline for a concussion and ruled out for the remainder of the game.


After being told he could not return, Adams was seen yelling at the independent concussion doctor after leaving the medical tent. He had to be held back by team personnel and remained visibly upset as he headed back to the Seattle locker room.
