    Willie Colon injured... UPDATE, Torn triceps, likely done for the year

    http://thesidelineview.com/columns/c...ers-arm-injury

    The Pittsburgh Steelers not only lost badly to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, they might have lost one of their most important players for a significant period of time in the process.

    Starting ORT Willie Colon, according to two sources, suffered an arm injury, which is believed to be in the triceps area.

    If the injury is significant, and the early indication is that it is, the Steelers could re-sign veteran OT Flozell Adams, who started 16 games last season for team last season when replacing Colon, who missed all of 2010 with an Achilles tendon injury.

    The top free agent offensive tackles available according to thesidelineview.com are Ryan Harris (injured/back), Jon Stinchcomb, Nick Kaczur, Mario Henderson, (former Steeler) Max Starks and Adams.

    The Steelers, who host the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday, list second-year OT Chris Scott as Colon’s backup.

    Colon re-signed with the team with a contract for five years and worth $29 million back in late July.

    Update as of 9/14/2011 - 8pm EST

    Colon has a torn triceps and was scheduled to undergo surgery this morning. He is likely done for the year. Read the full update

    I'm really glad they resigned this guy. Mediocre play and now seems to get hurt constantly.

    Trade him to the Bears for a used Gatorade cooler.

    Blah
    One of the reasons he shouldn't have been in the game. Other than the fact that they could have gotten the kids (Scott, Gilbert, etc.) valuable playing experience as well.

    If he couldn't block in a bathroom in Georgia, why in the hell would they think he could block in the NFL?

    Go be fat on the bench, Colon.

    Well the options are:
    start gilbert at RT
    re-sign Flozell to play RT
    re-sign starks to play LT and move scott to RT.
