Report: Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert subpoenaed in Mike Adams' stabbing case

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Adams was the victim of a stabbing and robbery attempt June 1, 2013. A report indicates defense attorneys are seeking Adams' personnel file.

Alan Jennings of WPXI in Pittsburgh tweeted Thursday Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert has been issued a subpoena in regards to personnel records on Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams. Those records are apparently being used by the attorneys of the accused to deflect the case against them.

Adams was stabbed on Pittsburgh's South Side in June, 2013, and, according to the criminal complaint, three men tried to rob Adams as he left a restaurant and tried to steal his vehicle.

The injuries Adams suffered required surgery, and forced him to miss the Steelers' offseason workout program. He reported to training camp and played the 2013 season without incident.

It's been wondered whether the attack had any impact on the offensive tackle, considering his second NFL season found him oftentimes overwhelmed, including a four sacks allowed performance against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4. The result of that game (a Steelers loss) was Adams being removed from the left tackle position, eventually in favor of fellow 2012 draft pick Kelvin Beachum.
