Thread: Colon injures Achilles

    Re: Colon injures Achilles

    If he is out for the season, this is a big loss. Colon was probably the best run blocker on the offensive line, and I think last year was easily his best year.

    I'd expect that Essex and Scott will probably compete for the starting RT position. Not encouraging. I think Foster plays guard because his feet aren't quick enough for OT.

    Aside from Willie Anderson, there are some other veteran options out there. Flozell Adams was released by the Cowboys. Not sure if he is going to retire, but perhaps the Steelers can get one more season out of him. Mike Gandy is a FA, but he ended last season due to a sports hernia. If healthy, he would seem to fit the mold of serviceable veteran. Ephraim Salaam is also out there.

    Finally, just to tweak JOM, it looks like Levi Jones is a FA, if he hasn't retired. Of course, this might not work because it would prevent the resigning of Joey Porter on the Steelers reunion tour.

    Thats it the rest of the team will be sequestered in protective custody until training camp...

    Also it will give a chance for Hines and Ben to finally have it out!

    Willie Colon expected to miss the 2010 season

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on June 28, 2010 3:53 PM ET


    We had a feeling this Willie Colon injury was going to sting.

    Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports that the Steelers tackle is expected to miss the 2010 season with a torn Achilles' tendon. A sliver of hope remains because Colon has yet to get back his MRI results.

    But tests are "all but certain to confirm" the worst case scenario.

    We believe Colon ranks as one of the most underrated right tackles in football, so his loss is significant. He's started 50 straight games. Trai Essex appears to be the most likely candidate to replace Colon in the lineup.

    yes it is, but let's look at the bright side...we should be able to cut down on the amount of false start penalties next year.

    I'm hoping we pick up a vet because we don't have any legit options at RT.
