During the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday training camp practice cornerback Senquez Golson was carted off of the field with an injury and after practice ended head coach Mike Tomlin delivered an update on the former second round draft pick.
“Senquez Golson suffered a mid-foot injury and he’ll be evaluated this evening,” Tomlin said.
Tomlin refused to speculate as to the seriousness of Golson’s injury and would only say that he’d update his status after the young cornerback is evaluated by the team’s medical staff.
When Golson left Monday’s practice, rookie safety Sean Davis took over as the first-team slot defender and Tomlin was asked to give his impression of the Maryland product afterwards.
“Nothing really that stands out,” Tomlin said. “He’s a good, young guy. I’m not always looking for clarity on a day-by-day basis.”
Also injured Monday were tight end Mandel Dixon (head) and linebacker James Harrison (ankle) and Tomlin said both would be evaluated. He did, however, call Harrison’s ankle injury a minor one.
Linebacker Jarvis Jones (illness) also sat out Monday as he was sick. Tomlin said he’s rooming at Latrobe with safety Shamarko Thomas, who missed time on Saturday due to him being sick.
“We had some other guys with some minor bumps and bruises, soft tissue related, but none of it of any significance worth mentioning individually,” Tomlin added.
On the positive side, fullback Roosevelt Nix returned to practice Monday after having to leave Sunday’s session with an undisclosed injury. Tight end Xavier Grimble also returned to action on Monday after having to leave Sunday’s practice due to heat exhaustion.
Still sidelined on the team’s Active/PUP list are tight end Ladarius Green (ankle) and wide receiver Shakim Phillips (hernia). Green, however, was working on the side Monday with the team’s trainers.
The Steelers will have a day off on Tuesday and will resume their practices at Saint Vincent College on Wednesday.
