The Seattle Seahawks have ruled out safety Jamal Adams ahead of their Week-7 battle against the Arizona Cardinals in the desert which has been flexed to “Sunday Night Football” in primetime.

Adams has missed the last two contests due to a lingering groin injury and won’t make the trip this week either.

Coach Pete Carroll is hopeful Adams will return to practice soon.

“He’s really close,” Carroll said Friday. “We want to make sure to get it right. The consensus is that it’s better to wait until next week. I anticipate that he’ll be practicing next week. We hoped to and wanted to, but we couldn’t get him out, so we’re going to leave him home, one more good weekend of rehab and prep and try to break him out next week.”

Adams was the only Seahawks ruled out against the Cardinals. Guard Mike Iupati, however, was listed as questionable to play with a back injury.
