Washington’s worst-case scenario regarding the availability of tackle Trey Adams seems to have come to fruition.
Adams had back surgery on Wednesday and, according to multiple reports, is likely out for the season. He posted a picture from the hospital to his private Instagram page on Wednesday.
Adams missed the Auburn game
Adams didn’t travel with the Huskies for the Week 1 game against Auburn in Atlanta. That was the first hint that something was seriously wrong with the star left tackle. The Huskies could have used him on Saturday. Auburn won the defensive struggle 21-16.
He has been regarded as a potential first-round pick in the NFL draft. But a serious back injury could put a significant damper on his draft stock. According to the Seattle Times, Adams is weighing the potential of coming back to Washington in 2019.
Adams missed the second half of the 2017 season
Had Adams not missed the last part of the 2017 season he could be preparing for his NFL debut this weekend. Adams suffered a torn ACL last season and decided to come back to school for the 2018 season. Now that he’s starting his recovery from a back injury, we’re guessing the NFL is one of the furthest things from his mind.
