Colon Could Be Lost For a Significant Amount of Time with Arm Injury

The Steelers are licking their wounds after Sunday’s somewhat stunning loss in Baltimore. Not only were they beat up on the field, but it appears they suffered a rather big injury off it.

Adam Caplan of The Sideline View is reporting that starting right tackle Willie Colon could be lost for a significant period of time with an arm injury.

Caplan says it’s believed that the injury is in the triceps area.

Colon was inked this past offseason to a big five year deal worth $29 million. If he’s lost for a long amount of time or even the season, the team could go out and bring back Flozell Adams, who was released and not brought back this offseason.

Right now Chris Scott is listed as Colon’s backup.

Caplan also pointed out a couple other tackles on the market – Ryan Harris (injured/back), Jon Stinchcomb, Nick Kaczur, Mario Henderson, (former Steeler) Max Starks and Adams.
