Michael Adams DB TB 10 Months

Bucs placed CB Michael Adams on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Adams had been dealing with knee issues since Week 1, where he underwent a clean-up procedure. The exact extent of his injury is unknown, though it's serious enough to cost him the final six games. Adams struggled in limited snaps this season, and is not under contract for 2014, which will be his age-29 campaign. Adams has made 80 career appearances, but only seven starts.

Bucs CB Michael Adams underwent knee surgery Wednesday.

Adams will miss multiple weeks, but is expected to avoid injured reserve. He should return as the Bucs' No. 4 corner and contribute on special teams.

Bucs signed CB Michael Adams and waived G Jeremy Lewis.

Adams spent six seasons with the Cardinals, starting seven of the 75 games he appeared in. He can help in the slot and act as a deep reserve while Darrelle Revis (ACL) eases his way back into action.

Cardinals CB Michael Adams left Sunday's game during the third quarter with a hamstring injury, but managed to return and finish the game.

Arizona can ill-afford to lose any of their cornerback depth, as they are one of the worst pass-defending units in the league.

Cardinals CB Michael Adams (neck/shoulder) has been released from the hospital.

Good news, but Adams is unlikely to suit up against the Eagles after his scary collision with Rams WR Austin Pettis late in Sunday's win. Richard Marshall should see most of the snaps at nickel corner in Adams' absence.

Cardinals CB Michael Adams was carted off after suffering a neck or shoulder injury on a fourth-quarter tackle in Sunday's game.

Adams blew up Austin Pettis after a short catch with under 20 seconds left in the game. It was a big play, but Adams paid for it by leading with his head. The Cardinals' slot cornerback, Adams figures to be replaced by Richard Marshall with A.J. Jefferson returning outside if the injury is significant.

Cardinals CB Michael Adams is out indefinitely after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery Sunday.

The usual timetable for such "minor" operations is only 2-4 weeks, but that's never a guarantee. Adams was the Cardinals' primary slot corner last season. Richard Marshall sometimes covered the slot in Carolina and could be the fall-back option inside, if he hadn't already moved ahead of Adams.

Cardinals re-signed CB Michael Adams to a two-year contract.

Adams is a pint-sized (5'8/181) slot corner whom Arizona didn't tender as a restricted free agent before the lockout. They wanted him back all along, however, and he's likely to return in a similar role between rookie Patrick Peterson and Greg Toler this year. Adams also contributes a bit in kickoff coverage.

Pro Football Weekly reports the odds are greater than 50-50 that free agent Michael Adams will re-sign with the Cardinals.

A bit surprising, since the Cardinals did not place a restricted free agent tender on Adams in March. If he does indeed end up back in Arizona, he's likely to serve as the Cardinals' fourth corner this season.
