Don’t want to ring all the alarm bells here but it appears that Senquez Golson went for an MRI after today’s practice.
The news was initially reported by Dale Lolley over at the Observer Reporter, leading off his notes from today’s practice. According to him, Golson didn’t participate in today’s practice and left the UPMC Sports Complex to get looked at.
Lolley does caution that this could be precautionary and that Golson told him he felt “good” yesterday. Of course, we had no idea of the severity of Golson’s injury last year either so we’ve seen the team be close to the vest before, especially on anything injury-related.
The team’s second round pick is looking to make his first footprint in the NFL after missing last year with a torn labrum in his shoulder. The injury came during OTAs and he was put on injured reserve during training camp.
Early indications had Golson playing on the outside to kick off OTAs though as Matthew Marczi pointed out, Golson wasn’t too worried about where he was playing. Now, let’s just hope the results of this test aren’t going to again hinder his ability to play, period.
We’ll try and keep you posted on Golson’s status for the rest of OTAs. Media can’t directly report on injured players, using player’s comments as their reporting guides, so hopefully someone is able to get an answer for all of us soon.
