Steelers Mike Adams Out 6 Weeks After Being Stabbed Breaking Up Carjacking
Natural male instinct is when you see someone trying to steal your car, you want to stop them. If you are a 300+ pound NFL lineman, you probably don’t even think twice about it.
But, you have to understand criminals don’t fight fair. They are cowards and carry weapons. Mike Adams is lucky the three guys he try to stop from carjacking him just had knives and not guns.
He is expected to make full recovery after being stabbed in stomach and forearm. Here is what Steelers coach Mike Tomlin had to say.
“I visited with him a couple days this weekend. He’s got great team support [and] family support. We expect a full recovery. He realizes of course how fortunate he is. We’re just glad he is going to be ok, and we’re just taking it day by day,” Tomlin said, via Dan Gigler of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “They’re expecting six weeks or so. He’s going to go through a couple of weeks of inactivity until he can proceed with the next step, but obviously the next step for him is getting out of the hospital. We expect that to come within the next 24 hours, and he’ll proceed from there.”
“It goes beyond the team. I just think as members of this community we need to recognize some things going on in the South Side that make it a dangerous place — particularly after hours — and we all need to take proper precautions, and hopefully as a community we’ll take the steps necessary to make sure that this doesn’t happen to anyone — whether it’s a Pittsburgh Steeler or not,” Tomlin said.
Always pay attention to your surroundings at all times.
