Schein Nine: Breakout candidates
Who will become the next household name in the NFL? Adam Schein identifies nine players who are primed to make the leap. More ...
NFL.com's Aditi Kinkhabwala spoke with Adams' agent, Eric Metz, who said three assailants tried to steal Adams' truck in front of his home. Metz said Adams gave chase even after being stabbed, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that one of the assailants held a gun to Adams' face. Adams had just left some friends a few minutes before and was alone.
No vital organs were affected, but Adams' stomach injury did necessitate surgery. Adams will be sidelined six to eight weeks, but Metz says Adams definitely will be ready for Steelers training camp in late July.
Pittsburgh police did not immediately respond to a request for more information by NFL.com. Metz told the Post-Gazette that one of the robbers dropped a cell phone, which police recovered. UPMC Mercy, where Adams reportedly was treated, would not comment on his status.
Adams addressed the incident on his Twitter page.
UPDATE: Adams later posted a picture from his hospital bed on Twitter.
