USA TODAY Sports

The former Ohio State offensive lineman was stabbed Friday evening during an apparent robbery.

Former Ohio State offensive lineman (and Dublin Coffman product) Mike Adams was stabbed during a Friday evening robbery attempt before being taken to a local hospital in Pittsburgh.

"We are aware of the situation regarding Mike Adams being stabbed earlier this morning. We are in direct communication with both Mike and his family. Mike is expected to make a full recovery, " Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement Saturday morning. Adams' agent Eric Metz added that Adams was out of surgery and is expected to make a full recovery in six weeks. He also added that the incident apparently occurred when the robbers were trying to steal Adams' truck.

Adams was a second round pick (#56 overall) by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012 after completing a four year career with the Buckeyes. He was the team rookie of the year after making six starts and appearing in 10 games, though often drew the ire of Steelers aficionados for his inconsistent first year play.

In even better news, it sounds like Adams is in good spirits, in spite of the frightening potentially life threatening situation he found himself in:

Our thoughts are with Adams and his family as he nurses his way back to full health.
