According to the Steelers, the second year tackle, who was the team’s rookie of the year in 2012, was recovering but remained hospitalized. As reported at the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, one of the robbers dropped a cell phone, which police had recovered.
NFL.com’s Aditi Kinkhabwala spoke with Adams’ agent, Eric Metz, who said three assailants allegedly tried to steal Mike Adams’ truck from in front of his home. Metz said Adams told him he gave chase even after being stabbed. Adams had just left some friends a few minutes before and was alone.
No vital organs were affected, but the stomach injury did necessitate surgery. Adams will be sidelined six to eight weeks, but Metz says Adams definitely will be ready for training camp.
Pittsburgh police did not immediately respond to a request for more information by NFL.com. Metz said told the Post-Gazette that one of the robbers dropped a cell phone, which police had recovered. UPMC Mercy, where Adams was reportedly treated, would not comment on his status.
