Mike Adams injury: Steelers tackle leaves game after hurting left ankle

Adams is just the latest injured player for the Steelers.


Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Mike Adams left Sunday's game in the third quarter with a left ankle injury.

Adams was carted to the locker room after suffering the injury. He will not return, according to the Steelers' official Twitter account.

Adams is the latest in a string of injuries for Pittsburgh. The team already lost linebacker LaMarr Woodley earlier in the game to the same injury. The team is also on third-string quarterback Charlie Batch after rib injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich. The team also lost lineman Willie Colon before Sunday's game started.

Adams was a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The 323-pound lineman out of Ohio State has started five of nine games for the Steelers this year.

With injuries and turnovers, the Steelers are currently losing to the Cleveland Browns, 20-14, in the fourth quarter. Pittsburgh has committed five turnovers on the day.
