Tomlin: Mike Adams Expected to Make Full Recovery from Stabbing Injuries


Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that right tackle Mike Adams is expected to make a full recovery and be released from the hospital within 24 hours, Dan Gigler writes for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

On Saturday, Adams was stabbed during a robbery attempt on his Pennsylvania house. He was stabbed once in his stomach and once in his left arm.

“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 okay, and we’re just taking it day by day,” Tomlin said.

“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.”

Steelers training camp opens in just under two months, which would give Adams time to fully recover.
