Found August 14, 2012 on DraftAce:

The Pittsburgh Steelers handed the starting left tackle job to 2nd-round pick Mike Adams, but after a shaky debut his job may be on the line.

In a span of just nine plays Adams allowed 2.5 sacks. He then suffered a knee injury which will keep him out of the Steelers next preseason game, preventing him from quick redemption. To make matters worse, the Steelers have activated veteran Max Starks from the PUP list.

While the Steelers haven’t publicly stated that Adams’ job is on the line, this recent series of events certainly doesn’t bode well for him. After all, Adams isn’t a 1st-rounder who entered camp with high expectations. He’s physically gifted, but had a reputation at Ohio State for being lazy and doing just enough to get by on the field. He needs these preseason games to prove he’s matured and can handle the pressure of the NFL.
