12:07 PM ET 06.01 | Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Mike Adams was stabbed on Friday evening in an apparent robbery attempt. He was taken to a local hospital, according to the Steelers official twitter account. Luckily, Adams appears to be doing well and is in good spirits, as evidenced by his tweet. Jason La Confora of CBS has reported that Adams' agent, Eric Metz, says Adams will be fine but will miss six weeks of action. Per La Confora, Metz states the robbers were trying to steal Adams' truck when the stabbing occurred and, thankfully, no vital organs were injured. He also reports that Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert is with Adams at the hospital.

WTAE had a good bit of info about this. It happened in the South Side (less than 6 miles from my house). There were three of them. It wasn't a carjacking, they tried to take his truck from outside his home. He came outside and stopped them.

During the chase Adams was stabbed in the stomach. One of the men lost his phone during the scuffle. Adams is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

They dropped their phone? Uh oh...

Glad he's okay though. Could have been a hell of a lot worse.

Nothing like dropping your cell phone at the scene to ensure a conviction.

Now I almost feel bad for the robbers. If they get caught and are sent to any local Jail they will be in serious trouble. Even convicts are all Steeler fans there. As they say in Pittsburg and the surrounding are. " Yeeuns are in for it." Any local knows exactly what Yee-uns" is.

Trying to do the phonetic for those not familiar with that special language usage the locals have developed. Matters not, just eat those fries with gravy, as in " jeet jet ".."Na, j'ew?"

It didn't give any description. The police said that they will have a statement 'at the appropriate time'.
