Pascagoula native and former Ole Miss star Senquez Golson is in danger of missing his first two seasons as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The speedy cornerback suffered a lisfranc injury Monday during practice and is set to miss 12 weeks, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com.
The 23-year-old Golson was carted off the practice field in Latrobe, Pa., on Monday after suffering what Steelers coach Mike Tomlin described at the time as a mid-foot injury.
The news on Tuesday of a lisfranc injury is a signficant blow for Golson, who missed the 2015 campaign with a shoulder injury.
The Steelers selected Golson in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft as the 56th overall pick following an outstanding senior campaign at Ole Miss. He tied a program record with 10 interceptions and was a consensus All-American for the Rebels in 2014.
Golson was a standout in football and baseball at Pascagoula. He was named to the Sun Herald's 2009 All-South Mississippi Football team and 2010 All-South Mississippi Baseball Team.
