PostSubject: 5-foot-9 Senquez Golson plans to play big for Steelers   Thu Jul 21, 2016 1:27 pm

The Pittsburgh Steelers' defensive reconstruction has been underway for four years now, with seven of the team's eight top-two-round draft picks since 2013 coming on the defensive side. One of those picks, cornerback Senquez Golson -- a mystery after being drafted in the second round of the 2015 draft -- would assuage a lot of concerns for the secondary if he carves out a versatile role.

At 5-foot-9 with quickness and zone-defense experience, Golson seems a natural fit in the slot. But Golson, who missed all of 2015 with a torn labrum, said the Steelers are working him on the inside and outside.

And Golson loves the outside. He's taking to the inside spot as well, but he thrives off the one-on-one matchups with bigger receivers by the sideline.

He feels size isn't an issue for him there. Just check his experience at Ole Miss, where he recorded 10 interceptions in his senior season. In his collegiate career, Golson matched up against the likes of Texas A&M's Mike Evans and Mizzou's Dorial Green-Beckham, both high draft picks in the NFL. First-round pick Laquon Treadwell, a former Ole Miss Rebel, was his biggest challenger at practice every day.

"Being 5-9, people think you really can’t play outside," Golson said. "I’ve played outside my whole career. All the guys that went in the first round, top 15-20 picks, wide receivers [from the SEC], I’ve got two, three years of film against them. It doesn’t matter to me. Different league, different stepping stone."

I'm going out on a limb and saying this "kid" is one of the keys to our season.

I don't think you're out on a limb. We need for him to show up in a big way. He's not a rookie. He's got that first year on the bench studying and now we'll find out if he learned any of coach Butler's defense. Shame on him if he didn't.

Yeah we need him to show up big time. If we can shore up our secondary, this team will be a huge threat, look at how far we got with a questionable secondary last season. I hope guys like Golson, and Davis can come in and make a big difference this season.

I really hope he ends up one of the building blocks to a much improved secondary.

maybe Golson can take some of the attention off Bell's stoopidity.

Hopefully Senquez can stay healthy enough to play.

Golson good to go

Friday was the day that Steelers cornerback Senquez Golson has been waiting all year for. After sitting out his rookie season, Golson was back on the field. The Steelers drafted Golson out of Ole Miss with hopes he'd make a serious impact in the secondary, but a shoulder injury has kept him from doing much of anything. He is among a trio of young defensive backs, alongside rookies Sean Davis and Artie Burns, leading a transitional period of the Steelers secondary. Unlike Davis and Burns, Golson had a full year to soak in everything mentally before entering his first true season in the NFL.

"I feel pretty good,” Golson said. “I’m definitely in great shape and ready to go. It’s been a crazy year for me, so I’m definitely anxious to get back out there and ready to go."

Eleven months out from surgery and almost two years removed from pads, it may take time for Golson to knock off the rust. When will that come back? "Probably getting the pads on and get banged around a couple times," he said.

Report: Steelers CB Senquez Golson Carted Off Monday With Injury

BY DAVE BRYAN AUGUST 1, 2016

Pittsburgh Steelers second-year cornerback Senquez Golson missed his entire rookie season due to a shoulder injury and now it appears he has suffered some sort of injury to his right ankle or foot during Monday’s training camp practice.

According to Bob Labriola of steelers.com, Golson visibly upset while being taken off field on a cart.

Golson, who was drafted by the Steelers in the second-round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Mississippi, had been seeing a lot of work as the starting slot cornerback early on in training camp.

The fact that Golson was visibly upset is not a great initial sign. Hopefully the injury won’t keep him off the field for an extended amount of time.

After Golson left, rookie safety Sean Davis replaced him as the first-team slot cornerback.

Expect head coach Mike Tomlin to address Golson’s injury during his press conference at the conclusion of practice.

He's faking it so he doesn't get hurt in the pre-season games

12 weeks from now is midseason. Still more likely for the season, as the recovery can be tough. The kid cant catch a break.

Look for the Steelers to try and add another CB after some other team cuts, if not sooner.

A guy like Leon Hall is still available.

There is no "IR/designated to return" so they'll probably put him on IR and see where he is during the season.

@dlolleyor
NFL Network reporting Golson has Lis Franc injury. If so, out up to 12 weeks. We'll see. Remember, it was reported Bell had 1 his 1st season

https://twitter.com/dlolleyor/status/760520108347232256

Meaning, maybe there is a 2nd opinion.

Lisfranc fracture curtailed Duce Staley's career. Hopefully its not a serious injury like that. They normally have to pin the bones together and immobilize for 6 weeks of healing of the tissue .

Disappointing to say the least. I was really looking forward to seeing what he could do on a professional stage. Doubtful we see much of him this year as I expect Davis and Burns to fight for the spot.

Latest I heard was he's out for 12 weeks. Pretty much all season if it's true. Next man up.... Artie! Better learn the playbook. Lining up to cover the best in the bidnuss should help.
