After missing all of his 2015 rookie season and most of the spring and summer workouts this year, Senquez Golson didn’t make it through four training camp practices before his most recent injury.
Golson, the Steelers’ second-round pick last year who was playing at the top of the depth chart for slot cornerback, left practice Monday at St. Vincent with what coach Mike Tomlin called a mid-foot injury.
Tomlin said Golson would be examined Monday evening and did not want to “guess” the seriousness of Golson’s injury.
After a play during an 11-on-11 drill, Golson skipped and bounced back behind a line of his gathered teammates and threw his helmet down in disgust. In obvious pain and frustration, Golson repeatedly tried to put weight on the foot before ultimately sitting on the ground while training staff examined his right foot. He was taken off the field on a golf cart.
Golson missed last season after August surgery on his left shoulder that was injured during organized team activities, weeks after being taken as the 56th overall pick from Ole Miss.
Golson missed most of this summer’s OTAs and minicamp because of a separate soft-tissue injury. But he reported to Latrobe in good health and was not placed on the physically unable to perform list, as some had speculated, and was on his way to being established as the defense’s top inside cornerback.
Rookie Sean Davis — this year’s second-round pick — took over as the slot cornerback on the first-team defense the remainder of the practice. Davis was drafted as a safety but played cornerback at times at Maryland.
First-round pick Artie Burns has played exclusively as an outside cornerback on the second team.
