Steelers rookie corner Golson has shoulder surgery

LATROBE, Pa. (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers rookie cornerback Senquez Golson underwent shoulder surgery on Friday and is out indefinitely.

The second-round pick out of Mississippi has been on the physically unable to perform list since training camp began nearly four weeks ago. Coach Mike Tomlin said Friday he's not certain what path the Steelers will follow when Golson begins rehabilitation.

Golson was a full participant in organized training activities and minicamp during the spring but showed up to camp at Saint Vincent College with the shoulder issue. Tomlin praised Golson's effort but said the shoulder had gotten to the point where it was time to get it fixed. Pittsburgh took Golson with the 56th overall pick in the draft following the retirement of veteran Ike Taylor.

The Steelers host Green Bay in a preseason game on Sunday.
