For those who were in attendance at the Pittsburgh Steelers training camp practice Monday, they saw Senquez Golson go down with a foot injury. The extent of the injury wasn't known, but judging by his reaction, it wasn't good.
Golson slammed his helmet down, and limped around for a bit before simply going to the ground and the medical team carting him off the field. Mike Tomlin said nothing more than a mid-foot injury, but reports are now surfacing the injury could be the worst-case scenario for the 2nd year cornerback out of Ole Miss.
Ouch. @RapSheet and I were just told LOUSY news for the #Steelers. CB Senquez Golson has a lisfranc injury that could keep him out 12 weeks— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) August 2, 2016
If the report is true -- the Steelers have yet to release anything official -- a 12-week injury would have Golson completely healed around mid-October.
While some are suspecting the injury could land him on the injured reserve, ending another season before it ever began, he could certainly be a candidate for the IR/Designated to return list. The 12-week time span for this type of injury could see Golson miss the first 6 weeks of the season before potentially being able to return.
As stated earlier, the Steelers have not released anything official, so all reports should be taken as just that -- a report.
The Steelers have an off day today, so the next time Mike Tomlin will speak to media will be Wednesday.
