Sunday morning; the scene of many a walk-of-shame, stumbles toward the coffee machines, and piecing together of the previous night’s activities. However wild your weekend has been so far it couldn’t possibly be wilder than Steelers second year OT Mike Adams, who is recovering from stab wounds at UPMC Mercy this weekend following an attempted carjacking on the South Side.
Ed Bouchette of the PPG reports that Adams is doing well after being stabbed once in the stomach and once in the forearm. Adams was at his truck apparently without his keys, which he had left at the Nakama valet service, when three men approached him, one with a knife and one with a gun. The report says that Adams had a gun pointed to his face while arguing with the men just before the man with the knife attacked him.
Mike Adams’ agent is reporting that the RT had successful surgery and that the knife wounds missed vital organs. Although he is also reporting that Adams will be ready for the start of training camp, there will be a long recovery time involved in recouping from stab wounds. Adams started 10 games his rookie season before going out with an ankle injury and is projected to be a starter this season. Adams was one of the “un-Steeler-like” draft picks the Steelers picked up last season in the second round as he was one of the Ohio Staters involved in the tattoos for autographs scandal and he also made the ultimate bone-head move of testing positive for marijuana at the NFL scouting combine. Adams had, so far, been a success story for the Steelers where their other questionable picks from last year were not so much.
Adams’ agent Eric Metz said that there were witnesses to the attack and then one of the men dropped a cellphone at the scene. He also added,
“What kind of Pittsburgh people stab a Steeler? What is wrong with these people?”
Exactly buddy, exactly. I kinda wish they’d release the phone number for that phone so that we can all leave him messages to listen to while he’s in jail on just how big of a scumbag he is.
All of Steeler Nation wishes a speedy recovery for Mike and are looking forward to seeing him back out on the field!
