Steelers T Mike Adams Stabbed During Robbery Attempt

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year tackle Mike Adams is recovering in a local hospital after he was stabbed in a robbery attempt on Pittsburgh\’s South Side, the team said today.

“We are aware of the situation regarding Mike Adams being stabbed earlier this morning,” Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement the team released via email. “We are in direct communication with both Mike and his family. Mike is expected to make a full recovery.”

Adams has been working at right tackle so far during the offseason. He was the Steelers second-round draft pick in 2012.

    I know it’s difficult when your instincts take over, and over the course of our lifetimes we will probably be in this situation at some point, but I have preached to youngsters something that I believe is very important. Jewelry, cars, other things can all be replaced, but a life cannot. You have no way of knowing if the next time you choose to be a hero, the culprits pull a gun and bye-bye. Yes, it would be great to catch these bastards, but for any insuarable, “replaceable” thing, it is definitely not worth gambling with your life.
    Safety first!
    And thank goodness he’s going to be alright.

    Awful news, but glad to hear that Mike is expected to make a full recovery. I hope that it will be a speedy recovery.

    I heard 6 to 8 weeks – ready by the start of training camp. Phew.

  • Bob Loblaw

    Before people jump to conclusions (since it took place in the South Side), apparently this happened outside his residence and they were trying to steal his truck.

    Wow… ok….. get well soon

  • Christopher Wilkes

    Why do people say things to Mike Adams on here like he’s actually gonna read it and appreciate your sentiment?

  • steeltown

    Sucks though he wont be in tip top shape come training camp, with this injury he’ll need to rest for atleast 5-6weeks, meaning no weight lifting or running
