Steelers’ Adams expected to be OK

ASSOCIATED PRESS

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Mike Adams is expected to make a full recovery after being stabbed during an attempted carjacking early Sunday morning.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that Adams, 23, understands how lucky he is that he was not more seriously hurt.

"Obviously, it's an unfortunate situation, but he's very blessed to be in the position that he's in," Tomlin said.

Adams told officers he was standing near his truck shortly after 3 a.m. when he was confronted by three men, one armed with a knife and one armed with a handgun.

Adams told police the trio tried to carjack him, but he didn't have his car keys. He said "the situation escalated" and one man pointed the gun at his face while the other stabbed him twice before all three fled.

Police said Michael Paranay, 25, of Pittsburgh was arrested and taken to Allegheny County jail on charges of criminal attempted homicide, aggravated assault, attempted robbery and conspiracy.
