Cameron Sutton and Senquez Golson are out
One of the biggest position battles Pittsburgh has this offseason is the slot corner. Rookie, Cameron Sutton, and third-year vet, Senquez Golson have been battling it out on the field, but have also dealt with injuries at camp.
With Golson missing the last two seasons with injuries, he’s fighting a battle to stay on the 53-man roster, just as much as he’s fighting for a starting job. He really needs to prove himself, and by missing the first game with a hamstring injury, he’s setting himself back big time.

Sutton, on the other hand, is making the most of his opportunity, but will also miss the first game. He’s missed a few days of practice for minor injuries but should return for the team’s second preseason matchup. As long as he continues to shine, there should be no reason he isn’t rewarded when the final depth chart is released.
This is a big one. Sutton and Golson are two of the team’s most intriguing players this offseason. If they want to keep up the competition, and assure that they’re not only making the team but playing this season, they need to get healthy and get on a field before the end of the preseason.
With so much to fight for, especially for Golson, you can almost assure they’ll be in action come Week 2.
