    Report: Colon done for year

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...one-for-season

    Ben Roethlisberger is back in the house, but the Pittsburgh Steelers continue to struggle with injuries along their battered offensive line.

    Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Sunday night that starting left guard Willie Colon aggravated his previously injured knee in Sunday's 34-24 loss to the San Diego Chargers and likely won't play again this season.

    According to the long-time beat writer, the Steelers plan to move All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey to Colon's spot with Doug Legursky taking over the middle position. It's not an ideal fix for the 7-6 Steelers, but coaches feel Legursky is a better suited at center than guard because he tends to play with his "shoulders square to the line of scrimmage," Dulac noted. Rookie David DeCastro also looms as an option at left guard.

    Despite an eternal stream of O-line combinations for the Steelers, the primary goal remains unchanged: Keep Big Ben safe and sound from defensive behemoths everywhere.

    Disagree. Calon is in the top 4 of guys who should not be a Steeler.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    i've never been a fan of colon and hope he will never be a steeler again, but i never take pleasure in seeing someone injured to the point of not returning.
    "Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward

    Really, let me guees. Legursky eh? Guees that Bengals game is still in your head where Colon had a good game. Lets not forget the whole season where his penalties have come on some of the most important plays of the game. You know damn well when you see a flag on tv, its on #74

    Has there been any word on DeCastro or Adams? Gilbert is done for the year right?

    His injury history alone over the past 3 seasons makes him toast. Gotta move on to someone else...permanently.
