Holy moly it’s early for players to seek medical help.
Of all the keys to success, the biggest is avoiding injuries. Teams can have a deep complete roster, but if they get bit by the injury bug it does not matter how talented they players on the injured list are.
On that note, Pittsburgh sent two players, James Connor and Senquez Golson to the hospital for varying ailments. This impacts the running group pretty heavily that is already without Le’Veon Bell who is holding out with a contract dispute.
Senquez Golson in his 3rd year.. has still yet to start and finish a padded practice.
Carted off after apparent hamstring injury

Cornerback Golson is out with a hamstring injury and Conner injured his shoulder according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Conner recently overcame a battle with cancer. “That evaluation has happened,” coach Mike Tomlin said. “I don’t have that information yet. No update on when they’ll return. When I get it, you get it.” Currently, the Steelers are down to Fitz Toussaint and Knile Davis as their main running backs while they begin training camp. Golson has not played at all in the NFL due to various injuries since he was drafted in the second round in 2015. He left the field on a cart.
Is this a scary omen given that the team just started camp, or is it no big deal?
