Steelers Player Adams Stabbed in Robbery Attempt



A Pittsburgh Steeler is recovering after being stabbed twice during an attempted carjacking early Saturday on Pittsburgh’s South Side.
 
Pittsburgh Police say 23-year-old Michael Adams told officers he was standing near his truck shortly after 3:00AM when he was confronted by three men, one armed with a knife and one armed with a handgun. Adams told police the trio tried to carjack him, but he didn't have his car keys.
 
He said "the situation escalated" and one man pointed the gun at his face while the other stabbed him twice before all three fled, according to police. Adams went into a nearby restaurant to seek help and was later taken to UPMC Mercy, where he had surgery for stab wounds to the abdomen and left forearm.
 
Adams, an offensive lineman, was drafted in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft and named the team's outstanding rookie, starting six of the 10 games in which he played.
