Former Ohio State offensive tackle and 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers second-round NFL draft pick Mike Adams has been hospitalized after being stabbed in what the team is calling an “apparent robbery attempt.”
Second-year offensive tackle @channel75live (Mike Adams) was injured & is hospitalized after being stabbed in an apparent robbery attempt .

As a rookie in 2012, Adams played in 10 games as the Steelers’ right tackle. He started in six of them before suffering a high ankle sprain that kept him out of the team’s final six games.
Adams has been working to become a major cog in one of the NFL’s youngest and most talented offensive lines, joining left tackle Marcus Gilbert, left guard Ramon Foster, All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey, and right guard David DeCastro. All of the lineman are 25 years or younger.
“We are aware of the situation regarding Mike Adams being stabbed earlier this morning,” Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert said. “We are in direct communication with both Mike and his family. Mike is expected to make a full recovery.”
We will be updating this story as more details become available.
