Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams is expected to make a full recovery after he was stabbed in the stomach and forearm early Saturday morning. The Steelers expect Adams to be released from the hospital in the next 24 hours.

Adams was stabbed after confronting three assailants who allegedly tried to steal Adams' truck. The offensive tackle gave chase after being stabbed before being rushed to UPMC Mercy Hospital.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he visited Adams in the hospital and Adams may be inactive for up to six weeks following his discharge from the hospital. Adams, a 2012 second-round pick, started six games for the Steelers in the 10 games he appeared in last season.
