Willie Colon Expected to Miss the Season



If the word of NFL.com is worth anything (and I think it's pretty safe to say that it is), RT Willie Colon tore his Achilles' tendon and will miss the entire 2010 season

Especially considering the team's re-commitment to the run in 2010, this is a very significant blow.  But where does the team go from here?

Adam Caplan of Scout.com, who broke the story this morning, lists Flozell Adams, Mike Gandy, Levi Jones, and Damion McIntosh as the best available UFA tackles on the market. He also names newly-signed Jonathan Scott, Tony Hills, and Trai Essex as internal replacements, and also floats the possibility of a switch from the left side to the right side for Max Starks.

Whatever happens, this is another very formidable obstacle for a team that absolutely, positively did not need one.

Steeler QB's will now get sacked 59 times this season instead of 58.

And the offense will have 30 less holding penalties and 100 less false starts.
