Report: Steelers Senquez Golson May Miss Season With Shoulder Injury


Looks like the reasoning for the Pittsburgh Steelers making a move for Brandon Boykin is all coming together now. Rookie cornerback Senquez Golson reportedly could miss the entire season with a shoulder injury after landing on the PUP list heading into training camp.

Here is more details from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

The Steelers are considering several options for rookie cornerback Senquez Golson, including having him undergo season-ending shoulder surgery.

Golson has been on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list since the start of training camp July 25. He went through spring practices with no apparent issues but later told team officials he thought he injured his shoulder during those practices.

His injury is part of the reason the Steelers traded for cornerback Brandon Boykin from the Philadelphia Eagles for a conditional fifth-round draft pick Saturday night. That pick reportedly could become a fourth-round pick if Boykin plays in 60 percent of the Steelers’ defensive snaps this season.

Although only 5-9 and listed at 176 pounds, Golson’s 10 interceptions last season for Ole Miss were second in the nation – only behind the Steelers’ seventh-round draft choice, Louisville safety Gerod Holliman, who had 14.

This is pretty unfortunate for a rookie who had a chance to contribute to the team this year. It is probably best that they go ahead and get this kind of surgery out of the way, rather than try to prolong it.

Golson was a stud for Ole Miss last year, and is an absolute ball hawk. Once he gets healthy there is no reason why he won’t be able to find a spot in their secondary.
