You can't blame Pittsburgh Steelers fans for overreacting. When news broke last week of Senquez Golson needing to undergo an MRI, fans expected the worst.
Thoughts strayed to him re-injuring his shoulder which saw him miss his entire rookie season in 2015, to a new injury which could sideline the ball hawking cornerback for part of the 2016 offseason, and/or regular season.
Golson was present at the team's OTA workout today, and talked with Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ray Fittipaldo about the news which spread like wildfire last week.
Senquez Golson said he is out short term with a soft tissue injury. Has nothing to do with surgically repaired shoulder. Says shoulder 100 %— Ray Fittipaldo (@rayfitt1) May 31, 2016
The news of Golson suffering any type of injury, even a "soft tissue" injury is never good, but when he is labeled as being out in the short-term is promising for the talented defensive back to being healthy before the team reports to St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA in late July.
Teams don't have to release any injury news or updates in the offseason, and there is a strong chance this is as close as fans will ever get to an answer in regards to what injury plagued Golson enough to have him undergo an MRI last week.
