Report: Steelers CB Senquez Golson to Miss Three Months with Lisfranc Injury

Senquez Golson

The Steelers got their first major injury blow on Tuesday, as it’s being reported that Senquez Golson, who was carted off the field on Monday, has a lisfranc injury and could miss up to three months of action.

Golson missed all of 2015 as well as most of the spring and summer workouts this year, and now last seasons second round pick of the black and gold is going to probably not be around till midway through the season.

A tough break for a team that needs all the help they can get at the DB position.

    Quite right, DaveB. Or as Warren Buffet loves to say, “When the tide goes out, you can see who’s been swimming naked.” The Steelers’ secondary has been swimming naked due to the neglect and poor decisions of Tomlin and management that have left the defense undermanned and over-emphasized and over-paid the offense.

    The Golson injury also reflects a questionable draft strategy of taking undersized or previously injured players for the sake of speed. The repeated injuries to Golson, Jarvis, and Pouncey come to mind; their backups have had lots of playing time over the past two years. To compete in the new pass-happy NFL, speed is admittedly essential. And sometimes, you can get away with taking the risk. But choosing speed at the expense of durability repeatedly is a losing long-term strategy.
