Senquez Golson’s right-foot issue has been diagnosed, and the results are not good for Golson or the Pittsburgh Steelers.
NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala reports Golson has a Lisfranc injury that “could keep him out 12 weeks,” and NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport confirmed the news.
Here’s how PennLive.com‘s Jacob Klinger described the injury on Monday:
The Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback tried to walk off what Mike Tomlin later called a mid-foot injury, couldn’t and spiked his helmet into the ground. He sat down, still visibly in pain and slammed a fist into the grass of Chuck Noll Field as medical staff and teammates came to his side.
It’s been a rough go for Golson in the NFL. The 2015 second-round draft pick missed all of last season with a shoulder injury. He was penciled in as a starter for Pittsburgh this year, but now will likely not play again until midseason (and could alternatively find himself on season-ending injured reserve).
Golson was an All-American at Ole Miss in 2014, with his most memorable play being a game-clinching interception vs. Alabama to help end the Rebels’ 10-game losing streak against the Crimson Tide.
